Growth Groups are designed to promote gospel growth through Christian community. We believe that attending church meetings on Sundays is good and necessary but attending church is not enough for individual Christians to fulfill the richness of the various "one another" commands in the New Testament (Acts 2:42-47; Rom. 12:13; 15:14; Gal. 6:2; 1 Thess. 5:11; Heb. 10:25; 1 Pet. 4:10; etc.). Growth Groups are a vehicle to facilitate this kind of mutual ministry. Check out Ch. 1 from "Why Small Groups?" published by Sovereign Grace Ministries on the justification for small groups. Here's a sample of "Growth Groups" by Colin Marshall, published by Matthias Media.
We currently have two Growth Groups. One group meets on Tuesday nights at Luke and Cara Swanson's home for a potluck dinner at 6:00 PM followed by a Bible study at 7:00 PM. The Friday night group is a Young Adult group that meets at the church in the Education Building at 6:00 PM for a potluck dinner. The Bible study begins around 7:00 PM. They are currently studying the book of 1 Samuel.
We'd love to have you join us!
