Growth Group Bible Studies
9:30 am - 10:30 am
These groups meet during our Sunday morning Bible study session. Pastors and other gifted teachers in the church provide clear, practical teaching from the Word of God. After each lesson, men and women break out into discussion groups to answer questions, pray together, and apply to their lives what they have learned. Group members stay in touch with each other throughout the week to encourage one another, meet one another's needs, and build Christ-centered friendships.
