God designed us to crave human connection. Grow groups are just one way to fulfill this desire God placed within us.  At First University, we encourage everyone—no matter one’s age group or stage in life, to join a small group in the confidence that it will foster an atmosphere of belonging and acceptance that will produce spiritual growth.
