Grow Groups

temp GG logoWant to meet people, make new friends, grow in the Word, and build a stronger community? Host or join a Grow Group!

Grow Groups run on a semester schedule and change each semester, so there’s the opportunity to try different groups based on your availability and interests.

Let’s be intentional about growing healthy relationships with others who are seeking God’s ways in God’s Word. God never intended for us to do life alone. Others need you just like you need them. We’re all in this God-life together and together…we’re better!

“Now, this means that when we come together and are side by side, something wonderful will be released. We can expect to be co-encouraged and co-comforted by each other’s faith!”  Romans 1:12 The Passion Translation

SPRING Grow Groups 2020

Our 12-week spring semester begins Saturday, February 15, and runs through Sunday, May 10 (Mother’s Day.) Start signing up for Grow Groups Saturday, January 25. All sign-ups are online and the link will be active January 25.


Here’s the deal…if you HOST it, they WILL come! Every weekend, we have people say that they want to connect. Even people who’ve been going to church for YEARS! Are you ready to be a key that can help unlock the door to their future? As Pastor Thom says, the human mind cannot comprehend God’s response to ONE act of obedience. You want to connect (you know you need to!) and so do others. Sign up to HOST a Grow Group! Your life IS your Group. Kids, cars, cooking, books, bikes, basket-weaving 😉  The topics are unlimited!

Grow Group Leaders: Please register to host your Grow Group ASAP and no later than Thursday, January 23. The sooner we have your Group listed, the sooner you can connect with them!


Grow Group leaders must participate in a Grow Group Leader Training session, if they haven’t previously done so.  If you’re a new Grow Group leader, register to host your group, indicate you haven’t taken the training and select which of the three trainings you’ll be attending. Training must be completed before the start of your Grow Group.


Grow Groups are managed through a new Planning Center Online module called Groups. Here’s how it works:
1. Click the link to join a group and follow the search tips to find the group for you!
2. If you have a Planning Center Online email address you use to log in for your serving schedule, use that.


WHEN: Grow Groups meet for about an hour, once a week. Some may be a little longer than that, depending on the activity. Any Grow Group meeting Wednesday evenings participates in First Wednesday when applicable.

BOOKS: If books are necessary, the cost to buy them through the Garden’s Merch area will be listed in after the group’s description. You may also download or purchase the book on your own. If purchasing through the Garden, stop by the Merch counter to check availability.

CHILDCARE: Unless specified in the Grow Group’s description, childcare is not generally available. However, there are usually a few groups that are family-related and even centered around kids! Please check the Group’s details for that information.
