GROW IN YOUR FAITH
Cultivate Groups are the third step in our discipleship process.
Cultivate Groups are small groups of 3–4 people of the same sex, focused on deepening their understanding of the Scriptures, and being honest about their own stories and struggles with their group. Through these groups one finds the accountability and encouragement to take their relationship with Christ to a deeper level. Cultivate Groups meet at least twice a month.
Joining a Cultivate Group is the third step in our discipleship process because it requires a deeper commitment to personal devotion through the Scriptures, being transparent with your group, confessing sin, praying for one another, and pursuing unbelievers to know Jesus.
What We Do
Each Cultivate Group selects a book of the Bible to go through together. We offer helpful resources for thinking through the passage and applying it to your life on your own. Then, when you meet together you'll have the opportunity to share how the passage challenged you.
CONFESSION & ACCOUNTABILITY
We want to be a place where sin doesn't hide. It's easy to hide our sin out of fear of judgment or our own insecurity. Cultivate Groups are a place to be encouraged by being honest about those struggles.
PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER
Cultivate Groups bear one another's burdens. By praying for each other we speak to God on behalf of our brothers and sisters and ask for his transforming grace to bring freedom and hope.
PRAYING FOR UNBELIEVERS
Cultivate Groups help us grow by loving our neighbors. Each participant is encouraged to think of someone to share the gospel with in their lives. We want to pray for them by name and ask Jesus to reveal his love to them.
How You'll Grow
How will you grow in a Cultivate Group?
Cultivate Groups are intended to help you grow as a disciple of Jesus by confessing sin and walking in freedom, regular time in the Scriptures, and coming alongside others as you journey together. Every year we offer each group member the opportunity to reflect upon their own growth and celebrate how God is transforming them.
CULTIVATE GROUP GOALS:
- Increased consistency in God's word
- Learning to apply God's word
