Growing Up In Jesus Is A Team Sport!


What Are Growth Groups?   Growth Groups are our best way for you to grow in your relationships with others and Christ! Groups can be from 10 – 20 adults who get together weekly or bi-weekly to meet new friends, grow in Christ, and to have fun! Some groups meet twice a month (Home Groups), while other groups (Core & Study Groups) meet from 6 – 13 weeks. Each group meets at various times based on that group’s needs and schedule.


Why Join A Growth Group?  To grow closer to God and others – To get to know others and to be known by others – To benefit others and to receive from others – It is a short-term commitment – You can pick your topic, location, and type of group that best fits you.
