It is our church’s job to provide you opportunities to ignite your spiritual growth. One of the ways we are doing that is through the launch of Growth Classes later this Fall. More information on these classes will be available soon.
It is important to note that you are the one that decides what stage of spiritual growth you are in. Soon, we will be provided an anonymous Individual Growth Self-Assessment to help you determine where you are on your spiritual journey. You are the only person that will see the results of this self-assessment, but you can share the results with the church or another person at your discretion.
For those of you that feel stalled in your faith, we are coming to help you. For those of you that feel like you’ve gotten complacent, we are coming to help ignite your spiritual growth.
