Growth Groups FAQ

Commonly Asked Questions and Answers:

1) Why should I join a Growth Group?
Growth Groups are a great way to meet new people. We realize it is difficult to get to know people just by coming to church on Sunday. Growth groups give you the change to meet new people, have fun, and learn about God.

2) How often will my Growth Group meet?

Growth Groups meet for anywhere from 6-10 weeks for about 60-90 minutes per week.

3) What will the people be like at my Group?

Growth Groups are basically 12-15 people who get together once a week to discuss the topic chosen.
Some groups are general and open to everyone; other groups are for men or women only, or for young adults and couples. 

4) How can I be sure that there is a Growth Group for me?

  • Convenient locations close to your work or home matter, so Groups are offered all over the Lancaster/Depew area, and often additional places in surrounding communities as well. Once you sign up a group leader will contact you with more details.
