GROW GROUPS – FAQ’S
 

Why should I join a Grow Group? People are made for relationships. Individuals hunger for the deep, authentic relationships. A Grow Group is a place where one can travel life’s journey together. What is the Group

A church sponsored, supported and recognized group of individuals who meet for fellowship, study, Bible/life discussions and prayer each fall and spring semester.

  What is the purpose?

Provide a group of individuals a weekly opportunity to grow in their faith, grow in relationships with each other and walk together in life.

  How long do they last?                                                                               

Each Group will commit to meet for two semesters through the school year. Groups may not meet as frequently during the summer and holiday months.
 

When and where do they meet?                                                                                   

Each group decides where it wants to meet.  Groups meet at least 3/4 times a month and usually in the Group members’ homes.
 

How long does a meeting last?                                                                         

A typical Group lasts 1-1.5 hours. However, Group time will vary.

  How is time spent?                                                                                   

Fellowship time (30 minutes), opening prayer and announcements (15 minutes), Bible study/discussion and closing prayer (45 min). This is a suggested schedule.
 

Can I join if I don’t go to Thrive?                                        

Yes. Thrive friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers can participate.  Most of the discussion/study materials are appropriate for both believers and those not attending a church.
 

What does it cost?                                                                                                          

There may be some minimal expense for literature and child care, depending upon your chosen Grow Group.  If you need help, talk to your Group facilitator for assistance.
