What are growth groups?

Growth groups are a tangible expression of how we live out our vision:

[quote]“We are all about Jesus and committed as a community to point people to Him in all of life”[/quote]

In order for this to happen, we commit to:

  • enjoying God
  • experiencing community
  • and engaging the world.

Growth groups are intentional steps towards seeing our vision become a greater reality. Scripture readings enable us to enjoy God, confession of sin enables us to experience deeper community, and kingdom prayer empowers us to engage the world we live in. Growth groups are a tangible way we can express our vision and mission.

How do growth groups work?

  • Growth groups meet once a week for approximately one hour and a half.
  • Growth Groups are groups of two or three (adding a fourth person in the beginning of the second group)
  • Three tasks are to be accomplished:
  1. Scripture is read repetitively, in context, and in community
  2. Sin is confessed to one another in mutual accountability
  3. Souls are prayed for strategically, specifically, and continuously
