Spiritual growth does not happen automatically.  Nor does it happen by accident. We must intentionally position ourselves for spiritual growth.  At New Life Community Church, “Growth Groups” are an incredible opportunity to build deeper relationships with other followers of Christ, as we encourage and sharpen one another towards spiritual growth.

Growth Groups are small, close-knit gatherings that meet in different homes or locations weekly. They meet during three 6 to10-week semesters a year (Spring, Summer and Fall). Meetings are informal and include focused discussion that bounces off that Sunday morning’s sermon topic or specialty group topics.

We all need encouragement. We all need wise counsel. We all need a safe place to ask hard questions. We all need to hear one another’s testimonies. We all need to sharpen and BE sharpened. And Growth Groups are an outstanding opportunity to build that kind of fellowship with one another. Click the link below to sign-up for a Growth Group.

When you find a group suitable for you, remember the group number and the host name…jot it down if you need to. In the menu to the left you can take advantage of the opportunity to sign up online!
