Growth Groups

What is a Growth Group?

A Growth Groups are relational Bible study groups that meet regularly to share, study, and support one another.

Why Growth Groups?

Our desire is to see people connected to God and to one another in the Body of Christ. Building real connections with each other centred on fellowship with God goes beyond participating the weekly worship service. Real connections are developed as people engage with each other in meaningful relationships. People grow as they learn from God’s word and apply it in their lives. Growth groups provide an important context for people to grow together in living out the implications of the Word.

When and Where Do the Groups Meet?

Growth Groups meet at various times and at various locations throughout the week/month.  The groups that meet following the Worship Service on Sunday have the benefit of Sunday School classes and child-care for their children.

What is the Required Commitment?

Joining a Growth Group requires a commitment to regular participation.  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 and to do the homework. This commitment is the key to a strong Growth Group and to getting the most out of the study.

What Will We Study?

Each session there are new Bible studies/groups to choose from. Choose a study group that piques your interest and one you hope will help your life.

Society beckons us to succeed-to achieve excellence in our appearance, our earning power, our family life. God Himself also beckons us to be women of excellence. But what exactly is He asking? If you’re hungry for God’s perspective on success in a society that bombards you with conflicting demands, feed on the truths of God’s Word that you’ll discover in this study by Cynthia Heald. You will not only learn to “approve the things that are excellent,” but you will experience the joy of becoming God’s woman of excellence.
