We are not perfect people, so we invite everyone to come grow with us anywhere, everywhere, anytime as we learn what is right, what is not right, how to get right, and how to stay right.
Spring 2021 Growth Groups:
Spring 2021 Growth Groups:
Mondays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning April 12th - General Population, 18 & Over - If you have ever wondered, "Why are other people blessed but I am stuck, why is there so much pain in the world, or why do the people I love keep making the same mistakes?" then this is the group for you. The Seeing Value growth group will expand your perspective on blessings, and it will open your eyes to the devastating consequences of devaluing God, other people, and yourself. Author Penny Noyes will challenge you to examine the reasons you feel trapped, the negative beliefs you have, and the consequences of destructive choices that have led to frustration and discontent. This group study will encourage you to leave the land of scarcity and feeling devalued to discover a life of grace, generosity, and freedom.
Fridays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning April 16th - Teens & Adults - Jesus left His believers with two mandates: 1) Love thy neighbor as thyself (the greatest commandment) and 2) reach lost souls for Christ (the Great Commission). But how do we connect Jesus to a secular world that is gripped with fear from the daily exposure of living life outside the Will of God? How do we, as believers in Christ, remain rooted and grounded in God's word to be effective Ambassadors and Disciples for Christ? This group will learn and grow together in God's word to find answers and solutions to these two questions and prepare ourselves to pursue Jesus' two mandates victoriously.
Thursdays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning April 22nd - General Population - Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Pastor and author J.D. Greear walks through the powerful words of Paul as he encourages believers to live well—we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.
Tuesdays @ 6:45 pm - Beginning April 13th - Women, All Ages - This group seeks to encourage women to understand who they really are in Christ-never settling for less when connected with the One who gives them hope. Ladies--you are called and empowered to live a life of victory through Christ!
Mondays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning April 12th - Men, All Ages - This group will discuss examples of biblical manhood, encourage men to be wary of the cultural temptations to be weak and selfish, and discover how men can live in the strength that God intends for them.
Thursdays @ 6:45 pm - Beginning April 15th - Couples - Everyone wants their marriage to be fruitful and full of joy, but it’s a lot harder to get there than most people think. What does it take to build a godly marriage? Join pastors Earl and Oneka McClellan as they share principles from Scripture and lessons from over twenty years of marriage. In this six-session series, they invite you to explore God’s blueprint for building a healthy marriage through trust, honesty, service, love, and God’s Word.
Tuesdays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning April 20th - Young Adult Men (20-40+) - Fellas--it's time to "get real."

This group will help deliver a clear definition of authentic manhood that will help you along your journey.
