Experience life application as we study the Bible together, verse by verse.
The next session of Growth Groups will launch in January 2019.
What are Growth Groups at Open Arms?
The four key values of our Growth Groups are the four key values of Open Arms ... Growth Groups are one way to carry out the many "one anothers" of Scripture.
We love God in our growth groups by making Him a priority in our lives and by seeking Him together.
We seek to discover the truths of the Bible in an interactive way while moving toward life application. The format we use is designed to encourage group interaction and sharing. The Growth Group leader does not need to be a teacher, but rather a facilitator who draws out interactive dialogue.
As described in the New Testament, the early church was a close community who willingly shared their lives with each other. Our Growth Groups are a place where people are made to feel welcome and genuinely cared for; a place where it’s safe to share struggles; a place to be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith; a place to build Christ-centered friendships as we pursue Jesus together.
By humbly viewing others as more significant than ourselves, we serve one another by interceding in prayer, being available for practical needs, and selflessly investing in one another’s spiritual growth.
