When are growth Groups?
Most groups meet for Bible study and prayer on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Typically, groups meet from September to April, with a summer break that includes informal gatherings to stay in touch.
Groups have also varied their schedules in different ways:
- Meet three times a month (with one week off or a special night)
- Meet for a 6-8 week period, then have a week or two apart
- Vary their focus on different nights of the month between study, prayer, fellowship (with or without kids)
- Rotate homes to share the opportunity to host
Do you offer childcare?

What usually happens during a group meeting?
A group will spend time each evening getting to know one another, studying and discussing the Bible, and praying for each other. Some also plan a few social events outside of group time to give members a chance to further their friendships with each other. Many groups also look for service opportunities they can be involved in as a group at different times during the year.
What if I don’t like the group I am in?
For a few people, for whatever reason, things just don’t work out in their group. While we hope this is never your experience, it is completely understandable. You do not have to feel locked in with the group you are a part of if you find yourself in this situation. If you feel like you would like to pursue other opportunities for fellowship or growth, please contact us so we can help you take a good next step. We will honor your confidentiality in this matter.
