Growth Groups

GrowthGroups_banner1Looking for a place to grow your faith? Join a small growth group!

Growth Groups are groups of 6‑12 people who meet during the week to share their lives, study the Scriptures to understand God’s will, and pray together.  For more information, please call the church. We’ll provide the contact information for the program you’re interested in.

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.  Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation.  There’s not pressure, no follow-up and no charge.  It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.  Alpha runs for about 11 weeks.  Enjoy a meal, video teaching and group discussion.

Jesus the Game Changer traces the astonishing and undeniable path of Jesus of Nazareth to now, bringing us to the overwhelming conclusion that Jesus is the most influential game changer in human history.  Each thought-provoking chapter shares insights from historians, academics and authors from all over the world.  Most are followers of Jesus, others are not.  Across their diverse areas of expertise, they help us discover how the life and teaching of Jesus changed the world for women and children, education, health, wealth, leadership, democracy and more, and why it matters.
