What is a Growth Group?
A Growth Group is a Bible study group consisting of 6-12 people who meet weekly to share, study, and support one another.
When and Where Do They Meet?
Growth Groups meet at various times and at various locations throughout the week. Parents with elementary age children may consider participating in a group that meets on Wednesday nights during Awana, to take advantage of the child-care available.
How Long Do They Last?
Each Growth Group session lasts 8 to 13 weeks, depending on the study. Lakeside offers a Winter session (Jan-Mar), a Spring session (Apr-Jun), and a Fall session (Sept-Nov). Growth Groups do not meet during July, August, and December.
What is the Required Commitment?
Joining a Growth Group requires a commitment to attend the 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 new Bible studies to choose from. Choose a study subject that piques your interest and one you hope will help your life.
