Growth Groups & Adult Education
Growth Groups are small groups that offer learning and sharing opportunities for adults in a casual atmosphere, or in a more structured class setting. A Growth Group is a safe place to ask deep faith questions – to learn more about God, The Bible and yourself. They are also a great way to meet people
GROWTH GROUPS MISSION STATEMENT
Through small groups, classes and other learning opportunities open to everyone, Growth Groups will strive to:
- Encourage and strengthen Biblical literacy,
- Promote application of the Christian faith to life experience,
- Develop awareness of spirituality in all facets of life,
- Encourage group members to share in leadership, and
- Build a sense of community among and through members and leaders.

Who Did God Create and Gift Me to Be?
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living. . . – Ephesians 1:11
Who did God create and gift you to be? How has he molded your interests, life experiences, and gifts together?
God created you to be like Christ. The purpose of this powerful, interactive course is to help you discover your gifts and understand how to use them for a more fruitful and fulfilling life.
The eight-week course will begin on September 9 and run through October 28. It will be held at 8:45 on Sunday mornings in the Adult Lounge and will be facilitated by Marj Lawson. You may register online or via the registration form in the Narthex.
