Grow Groups

GROW GROUPS

Want to grow your relationship with God? Want to learn more about the Bible? The journey of faith is not meant to be experienced alone. Life is better together!

Adult Groups are available in different formats:

  • Wednesday Groups
  • Sunday School Groups

WHICH FORMAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

We have two types of regularly scheduled grow groups: Wednesday Night Grow Groups and Sunday School Grow Groups. Read below for descriptions of these groups.

Wednesday Grow Groups

New groups form often based around different themes.  These are the easiest groups to become involved with. Wednesday Grow Groups are a part of the Wednesday Connections and begin at 6:30p after (Wednesday Dinner at 5:30p).

Becoming Mom Strong – Jayme Dills and Leanne Tindell – In this moms-only group, you will utilize the “Becoming Mom Strong” study to discover how to fight with all that’s in you for your family and your faith. You will learn how God equips you with a special strength to lead your family to fight the ultimate battle for their hearts and souls.

Church of the Small Things – Myra Adams and Lori Hopkins – Is my ordinary, everyday life actually significant? Is it ok to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office and cooking chicken for dinner? In this women-only group, you will utilize the “Church of the Small Things” video-based participant guides to tackle these questions in a light-hearted and fun way.

Dr. Luke: Called by God for Paul –John Brinsfield and James Pelt – Although we know few facts of his life, Luke has left us a strong impression of himself by what he wrote. In this group, you will study Dr. Luke to help gain a greater understanding and appreciation for Luke’s contributions to the New Testament (The Gospel of Luke and Acts).

Follower’s Life – Chris Bryant – The two words capable of changing everything in our life forever for the better: “Follow me,” Jesus said. Renew your faith. Rediscover simplicity. Regain the better life. This group, which will last 6-9 weeks, is for singles only this semester.

Living Praise – Jonathan Walker – In the ancient world something extraordinary happened when God’s people gathered to worship him. It was more than just singing; it was a declaration, a proclamation, a time to fully embody praise to God for who he is, and what he has done. In this group, you will explore how to be a living praise to God.

Sharing the Song – Taylor Lankford – Let’s come together for an hour each week and sing praises to God – no pressure, no performance, only joy. In this group, you will explore musical heritage through the lens of the 21st Century Christian. Bring your instruments if you want! Everyone is welcome, no matter your background (or lack thereof) in music.

Then and Now: Nehemiah – Kerri and Jamie Ellis – Isolation, human trafficking, immigration, cultural oppression, building walls, arming workers…turn on any news outlet and these are the stories of the day. They are also the story of the Old Testament book of Nehemiah. You will see what Nehemiah has to say to us today.

Weekly Renewal – Lamar and Elaine Brown – In this group, you will be led on a weekly journey of spiritual renewal. You will look into a different topic or verse each week, seeking to find application in our daily lives. Drop in any time!

Sunday School Grow Groups

Sunday School Groups are on-going groups that meet year round to learn more about the Bible, and enter into fellowship with each other by caring, praying, and sometimes partying together. Sunday School classes also often organize to meet volunteer or financial needs in the church and community. Each class is as distinct and unique as the people who attend.
