GROW Groups

GROW groups focus on various aspects of growing relationally with God and others.

“The person who loves their dream of community will destroy it, but the person who loves those around them will create community.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Growing in our relationship with God and others is a core value to The Experience, that’s why in addition to our Sunday services,  we connect in small groups. Our GROW Groups focus on various aspects of growing relationally with God and others; if you want to get more plugged into what God has for you, partner with a GROW or GO Group and see what’s next!
