A Grow Group is a group 5 to 10 people who commit to four practices to grow in Christ:
authenticity, care, spiritual growth, and engagement in real-world issues
What is a Grow Group?
Grow Groups are small groups of 5-10 people who come together on a regular schedule to
- Grow in Christ
- Grow in community and support of one another
- Support one another in prayer and missions to serve others
Faith comes to life in groups like these. Jesus had small group of twelve. For three years, they were accountable to each other, they learned Jesus’ way together, and they learned how to engaged the world with their faith. John Wesley helped birth a Jesus movement, the Methodist movement, the lifeblood of which was small communities who cared for each other, grew together, and engaged their neighbors and world together. Faith comes to life when a small group of people commit to authenticity, care, spiritual disciplines and real world engagement together. In Grow Groups, church happens. Faith becomes real beyond Sunday mornings.
Currently, there are 8 active Grow Groups meeting. Some meet in homes and some meet at the the church. Are you interested in being a part of a Grow Group? Are you looking for common ground with others who are married, divorced, single, widowed, parenting small children, empty nesting, caring for elderly parents, your age? If there isn’t a current group for you, please prayerfully consider helping form and lead a new Grow Group.
