2014 Winter Session
January 12 — April 6
What is a Growth Group?
A Growth Group is a Bible study group consisting of 6-8 people who meet weekly to share, study, and support one another. The groups are formed based on the study you select.
When and Where Do They Meet?
Growth Groups can meet at various times and at various locations throughout the week, depending on what works best for the group. Most groups choose to meet on Sundays before the Worship Service or on Wednesday evenings during Awana Club to take advantage of the child-care available during those times.
How Long Do They Last?
Each Growth Group session lasts 8 to 13 weeks, depending on the study you choose. We have a Winter session (Jan-Mar), a Spring session (Apr-Jun), and a Fall session (Sept-Nov). At the end of each session, you choose a new study and are grouped accordingly. Growth Groups do not meet during July, August, and December.
What is the Required Commitment?
Joining a Growth Group requires a 8 to 13 week commitment to attend the weekly Bible study and do the homework ahead of time. Obviously, allowances are made for sickness, vacation, work conflicts and other special events, but to get the most out of the study you really need to be present each week. This commitment is the key to a strong Growth Group.
What Will We Study?
Each session there are six new Bible studies to choose from (listed to the right). Some studies are tailored specifically for men or for women. Choose a study subject that piques your interest and one you hope will help your life. Groups of 6-8 are formed based on study selection.
