Growth Groups

Life is better with people! We believe spiritual growth occurs best in relational environments where people can help each other grow in Christ. An important focus for us is to help people move from our large environments into smaller groups where they can get to know one another and help each other become more like Jesus. Every week our Growth Groups meet all over the community to study, pray and share life together, and find tangible ways to serve our community.   

All groups launch the week of February 27th and will run until May.
