Growth Groups Love Grow Share Blue

Growth groups are designed to provide a consistent, ongoing opportunity to experience deeper connections with God and with others.  Below is a list of days and times that groups are being offered.

“Guardrails: Avoiding Regrets In Your Life” by Andy Stanley (Men’s Study)   dark blue register button
Monday @ 7PM (Begins January 23rd)
Location:  Upper Room
Guardrails are designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous areas. They're everywhere, but they don't really get much attention…until somebody hits one.  Ever wonder what it would be like to have guardrails in your life; areas where culture baits you to the edge of disaster like friendships, finances and your marriage?  Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails.  In this six-session video based study, men will be challenged to establish personal guardrails.
