Growth Groups are small groups that offer learning and sharing opportunities for adults in a casual atmosphere, or in a more structured class setting. A Growth Group is a safe place to ask deep faith questions – to learn more about God, The Bible, and yourself.  They are also a great way to meet people

  • Encourage and strengthen Biblical literacy,
  • Promote application of the Christian faith to life experience,

ADULT EDUCATION

RECKLESS LOVE

 

How did Jesus teach the Greatest Commandment to his disciples?  In his book Reckless Love, author and pastor Tom Berlin suggests that Jesus taught them how to love God with heart, mind, soul and strength by showing them how to love their neighbor.  While many of us hope to learn to be better family, friends, leaders and neighbors by finding a deeper relationship with God, what if becoming a better neighbor leads you to that deeper relationship with God? 

In this six-week book study, we will see the way Jesus’ care for others disrupted the way his disciples thought and acted so deeply that they learned to love God fully and join Jesus’ mission unambiguously.   We will learn how loving the people around us will renew our faith and give us a new experience of loving God. 

Beginning May 8.  Facilitated by Steve Davis from 11:15 to 12:15 on Sunday mornings and by Gay Amos from 10:30 to 11:30 on Tuesday mornings.
