Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

What’s a Growth Group?

A Growth Group is a group of usually 7 to 15 people who meet together on a regular basis to study the Bible, discuss how it applies to their lives, personally connect with each other through fellowship and pray for one another.

 

 

Why should I be in one?

Biblically, every Christian is a disciple.  A disciple is a learner, a follower of Jesus Christ.  The Growth Group is our primary means of helping people grow into spiritually maturing disciples.  It’s where we can ask questions and learn from one another.  It’s where we learn how God’s Word impacts our daily life and how we can go about making it real and personal. 

 

The Growth Group is also where we develop meaningful, supportive relationships with others.  It’s just not possible to develop close friendships when you only see one another occasionally on Sunday mornings.  Relationships take time to develop – they need regular interaction on a deeper level.  That’s what Growth Groups specialize in!

 

What are we aiming to grow in? We expect to :

– grow in our knowledge of the Bible

– grow in our love of our Savior, Jesus Christ

– grow in godliness

– grow in spiritual depth

– grow in our relationships with one another

 

When and where do they meet?

Growth Groups meet weekly on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. The groups meet in-person either at the group members’ homes or at the church.

 

Our groups meet in the evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., but we also offer a group for women that meets on Wednesday mornings. See the chart below.

 

Our Growth Groups season is from September 2021 through the middle of May 2022.

 

 

What are we studying this year?

The group season is split into 3 sections:

  • We’ll study a book of the Bible. This year we’ll be studying the New Testament Book of Acts (11 weeks).
  • We’ll study a topic related to that book of the Bible. This year we will work through the book, The Gospel and Personal Evangelism, by Mark Dever (7 weeks).
  • And then each leader will choose their own topic to finish the last 8 weeks of the season.

And as we do regularly, we also offer a two-year study on marriage and parenting which is mainly targeted toward parents of younger children (Year 1: marriage, Year 2: parenting).

In addition, we offer a class on Fundamentals of Biblical Counseling. Learn more about this course here.

For young adults who are age 18 to early 30’s, we offer Bible study, prayer, fellowship and activities in our Thrive Ministry. Learn more here.

 

If you like your group, you can feel free to stay in it from season to season. If you’d like to change your group, you can switch to an open group.
