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.   

Groups launch the week of September 25th and will run until December.


Fall 2017 Groups
Men’s Breakfast at Zips 
Meeting:  Every Monday @ 8:30AM
An informal opportunity to fellowship, talk about sports, God or just life in general. No need to sign up for this group. Just come as you're able and enjoy some time with the guys.
Jim & Judi Archibald - REGISTER FOR THIS GROUP
Location: Archibald Home - Northwest of Suncrest
Meeting: Monday Evenings
Study: Think Differently - James MacDonald
This study of Romans identifies strongholds, examines how they came to be, and offers believers a biblical path toward repentance and the renewing of their minds. God offers our only hope for victory over disposition, dysfunction, double-mindedness, and every other mental stronghold. With Him we can think differently.

Meeting:  Tuesday Evenings
Study:  Parenting – Help in the Journey
Are you currently parenting an adoptive child, foster child, a grandchild, or a kiddo that takes every last ounce of your patience and then some? If so, Bart and Heather would like to invite you to be a part of a group that will provide support, encouragement and practical parental training. We'll focus on how to build healthy bonds, deal with behavior challenges and discipline with love. We look forward to the journey with you!
