Growth Opportunities

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen."

1 Peter 2:18

Growth Opportunities allow us to engage with others to glorify God in both church and home-based
small group settings. Through these connections, we can share the hope of Jesus Christ
and make it a part of the community in which we live.
Every Growth Opportunity will focus on these three core elements:
  • Study: Discovering the truth of God’s Word; intentionally   growing in faith, prayer, meditation, fasting and worship
  • Community: Bringing unity under God, serving others, being accountable to each other, loving each other, and worshipping together
  •  Impact: Offering hope to the hopeless, serving others, benevolence to all

We encourage all of you, no matter your season of life, to explore your heart and open your schedules to a growth opportunity. 

Current Growth Opportunities

Family Study - Book of Mark
Sundays, 9:30AM - 10:30AM, The Hub (Room 116)
Ongoing

Bring your family and as a group we will explore the Gospel of Mark. Yes there will be some distractions with kids but the beauty of this study will be the opportunity for children and parents alike to speak into the discussion. As we look at the life of Jesus, we will see Him through Mark's youthful vigor as the youngest Gospel author and the actions of Jesus in a way that is relatable to adults and children. Open to parents & kids of all ages.

Life of Jesus
Sundays, 9:45AM - 10:45AM, Room 314
Begins 1/17

We will be examining the life of Jesus using the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Galatians 4:4, tells us, "In the fullness of time, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, and born under the Law..." We will seek to understand the times Jesus lived in, the challenges He faced culturally and politically, and His experiences as He  interacted with the people of his day. We will explore His teachings and the promises He gave us as our Savior  and High Priest who was "in all points tempted as we are, yet  without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). Open to all.
