What's a Growth Group?
Growth Groups are small communities who are seeking to engage God's Word and live it out together. These groups are the main place where we GROW as disciples. Groups meet in various locations (mostly people's homes) every other week to build community, study and discuss the Bible and relevant materials about God and the Christian life, pray for one another, and serve together. Yet, these meetings and practices only tell part of the story. Ideally, Growth Groups are communities that are doing life together: being there for each other when one is in need, gathering outside of set group times to enjoy each other's company and serve others, and having meaningful dialogue that overflows into restaurants, porches, and the workplace lunch table. We all need to know other people deeply and be known by them. We all need others to help us really become the person God created us to be. We all need a community that can "speak the truth in love" and "bear one another's burdens." These are the needs and desires FOCUS Groups, infused with God's presence, are intended to fulfill.
