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.

Flexible Timing

A proven, effective strategy for building disciples. Operation Timothy is a one-on-one curriculum where a disciple (aka "Timothy") is paired with a leader who walks him/her through basic lessons designed to help the individual get familiar with the Bible and what it means to follow Jesus. The leader helps the disciple learn to effectively share their faith with another person, and teaches how they, too, can produce disciples.
