We are so excited to announce that Growth Groups will begin on October 1, 2017!
What are growth groups?
Our new ministry of Growth Groups will consist of at-home Bible study groups that will meet for 10-week sessions (there will be three sessions in a year from Fall to Spring, with a break for Summer). Group leaders will choose a curriculum on any topic they wish to go through, and people may sign up to join to learn about the topic that most interests them. Each group will meet on different days of the week at different homes (or at church), and all of this will be determined by the Growth Group leaders.
Each session will consist of 10 weeks, meaning that groups will change every session. There will be different leaders and different groups. Because of this, leaders are able to lead one session and take a break the next session to attend a group.
Fall Quarter 2017: October 1, 2017-December 15, 2017

If you want to grow a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus, this is the group for you! Over the following ten weeks, you will draw nearer to God. Abiding in Christ, and joyfully fulfilling God's plan for your life is a choice that you have to make every day. We are called to love God with all of our hearts, all our minds, all our souls, and all our strength. To do this we must spend time with Jesus! I look forward to growing with you, and serving all of you in this incredible journey. Expect to experience a transformation as we renew our minds, and focus on our King.

DUAL CITIZENSHIP: A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE ON GOVERNMENT
This 10-session study will help you and your group think about important and hotly debated issues that are of specific interest to Christians. The study will consider such issues as: What does it mean to be a Christian in our society? How can we best impact our culture? What should our role be in politics? Should Christians have power?

Growing in Spirit
Our desire is to grow together in Spirit by seeking what the Bible says about different issues that we face every single day. We hope that you will not only learn from Scripture, but your faith will grow through discussions and questions that may be asked in the group.
Growing in community
We also desire for our community to not only grow inward (grow closer together as a church), but also outward (be added to daily, Acts 2:47). We love growing together on Sunday mornings, but Growth Groups are modeled closely to the Acts 2 church to allow for better community building.
