Experiencing God: Growth Groups
We are taking a break for the holiday and then will pick back up the week of Jan. 15th thru March 26th.
Growth Groups AKA Cell Groups are small groups that meet with the purpose of adding people to the group so that the group will expand and have to “birth” a new group. Cell Groups find their name from the human cell in the human body. Cells feed and when healthy expand to the point where they birth into two cells. Cell groups meet to feed on the Word of God, find strength in fellowship and mutual caring, with the purpose to invite others so that the cell group might have to “give birth” as one becomes two, so that more people may come to Christ. We will be calling Cell Groups Growth Groups. For more information, click here.
