connecting to God

As Jesus taught the disciples, it is imperative that we remain connected to God. Jesus said, "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing" 

(John 15:5 NLT).


Growth Groups are short-term, topical groups where you connect to God by learning Biblical truth through discussion and connecting with others. Several groups are offered throughout the year, ranging in topics from in-depth Bible studies, apologetics, and spiritual gifts, to finances, health, marriage,parenting, and more. Growth Groups are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
