WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A GROW GROUP?

Grow groups are small group gatherings that create safe spaces for people to develop relationships, grow spiritually, and to build community through celebrating our similarities and differences.  At First University SDA Church, Grow groups will serve as an opportunity for people to connect, grow, and share in a community. 1U Grow groups will meet on a semester basis. Each grow group will run anywhere between 6 and 10 weeks.


An example of a small group in the Bible, would be Jesus and his 12 apostles. In Mark 3:13-19, it identifies a special group of disciples that Jesus appointed to walk with him.  According to verse 14 and 15, these apostles were selected to go out and preach, have power to heal sicknesses, and cast out demons.
