Fall Growth Groups
Growth Groups are small groups that meet together for a 10-12 weeks, with two intertwined goals: 1) Develop relationships with a variety of people in our church community, and 2) Grow closer to God as we engage in discipleship. We believe lasting spiritual change almost always happens in the context of community.
This Fall, all of our Groups (besides Group #20) will be taking part in a church-wide event called “FOCUS.” Groups will utilize a specialized curriculum, following along with a 10 week series centered around building up a clear and simple Christian worldview. In a world where truth is contested at every turn, it’s more important than ever that we “get our story straight” and focus in on what exactly Christians hold to be true.
For more information on FOCUS, check out the Growth Group links below!
FOCUS begins Septembers 15th; curriculum books will be distributed in church that Sunday morning.

Why Growth Groups?
It is often difficult to get connected with others in a growing church. So we have created intentional spaces where we can engage in relationships and experience God together. We believe that the intentionality and communal nature of growth groups can be beneficial for our spiritual growth. For this reason it is our desire to have everyone involved in a weekly Growth Group!
