Time to Find Community Here

No matter your stage in life, there is a place for you to find authentic relationships at FUMC.
 
What are Growth Groups?
A Growth Group is a group of usually 5 to 14 people who meet together on a regular basis, either in homes or at the church, to study the Bible using sermon-based material, discuss how it applies to their lives, personally connect with each other through fellowship and pray for one another.
 
Why should I be in one?

Biblically, every Christian is a disciple. A disciple is a learner, a follower of Jesus Christ. The Growth Group is our primary means of helping people grow into spiritually maturing disciples. It’s where we can ask questions and learn from one another. It’s where we learn how God’s Word impacts our daily life and how we can go about making it real and personal.

The Growth Group is also where we develop meaningful, supportive relationships with others. It’s just not possible to develop close friendships when you only see one another occasionally on Sunday mornings. Relationships take time to develop – they need regular interaction on a deeper level. That’s what Growth Groups specialize in!

What are we aiming to grow in? We expect to :

– grow in our knowledge of the Bible
– grow in our love of our Savior, Jesus Christ                                  
– grow in our relationships with one another
 
How do I get in one?
To sign up for a group, use the appropriate sign-up sheet on the Welcome Table on Sunday mornings. Or you can call the Growth Groups Director, Pastor Heewon Kim, at the church office.  He can be reached at 815-284-2849
