Grow

Grow in Christ through classes, events, and resources.

When we invest our time, energy, and attention to growing our hearts and minds in Christ, we reap a great reward! Our Grow ministry provides many opportunities to grow in the knowledge of, love for, and obedience to God.

Online Classes

This fall, we are offering seven online classes to help you grow in Christ. All classes will be held through Zoom. Any books used in courses are selected as discussion pieces and tools for engagement, but we rely on God’s Word for our measure of truth and discipleship.
