Grow groups


This is the way we build relationships.  We're called to move closer to God, and closer to each other.  Through classes, studies, small groups, circles, and support meetings, we long to learn more about our faith, and how to put it into action.  You are encouraged to sign up for at least one every season.(Currently May-August) For an ongoing series of groups, you only need to sign up once.

And don't forget about Go! groups. Click here to learn more about them.

You can sign up for as many opportunities as you want!

Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. in room 303. We are continuing “the book Of Romans”.

LEADER: John Good

Sept. 8th-Oct. 27th : Paul’s letter to the Romans has been influential in the development of Christian doctrine. These doctrines were worked out by thoughtful Christians of ages past (like Martin Luther) who studied Paul’s words and then interpreted those words in ways so compelling that they not only reinvigorated their own faith, they also inspired seismic reform in the church. The challenge is learning to engage in our own interpretive conversation with the text, in spite of the deeply entrenched tradition of interpretation that provides ready-made answers to a set of predetermined questions.
