Here are four great reasons why you should join a Growth Group:
- Weekly Bible study will help you grow in your faith (Psalm 119:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
- Prayer from others helps you get through the tough times (Philippians 4:6; 1 John 5:14-15).
- You’ll meet new friends in this busy city that will encourage you (Proverbs 27:17).
- You’ll have fun with other people going through the same things you are (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).
Here is why other Journey Attenders say you should join a Growth Group:
*GROW IN YOUR FAITH
“Growth Groups make you more accountable with your spiritually walk. Meeting other Christians weekly always reminds you that you need to keep your relationship with God in check.”
- Avery Gaskin, TV Production
*MAKE NEW FRIENDS
“Growth Groups are a great way to meet people in the church because you get to hang out and discuss life - how to be a better Christian. I've met a lot of great friends!”
- Nick Grinlinton, Guitarist/Composer
“Growth Groups are a great way to learn about a specific area that you're interested in. It's a small commitment that has a great impact on how I live.”
- Benjamin Baxley, Technology
*CUSTOMIZE YOUR GROUP
“Be honest with yourself on what area in your life you feel needs to be strengthened with God, then find a group that will be studying that subject.”
