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!

The Alpha Course

The Alpha Course is an exploration of Jesus and historic Christian faith. 
 It’s ideal for (1) those who already believe, but want to shore up the reasons for their hope — and (2) for those who are curious about Jesus and would appreciate exploring in a context  of intelligent content and respectful discussion.
 
This course will run every Wednesday @ 6:45pm, starting with dinner  9/14 — 11/16 (ten weeks), plus concluding Saturday daytime sessions on 11/19.

Grow Group

TUESDAYS: 6/28 & 7/26
7pm
Spiritual gifts, and particularly the prophetic, can be weird! But it can be done in a surprisingly "naturally supernatural" way. We'll review some scriptures then practice doing what we've read, using simple, helpful exercises.

Join the E-Team

The E-Team is the core of our church; people who want to use their spiritual gifts to serve others inside and outside the four walls of the church.

GO Opportunities

It’s our desire as we receive the transforming love of Jesus, that we go and share it outside the four walls of the church.
