Growth Groups


We believe spiritual growth flows out of two basic commitments:

  • A commitment to God and the Bible.
  • A commitment to significant Christian relationships or community.

To help develop these significant relationships, we have created “Growth Groups.”

Because we believe that spiritual growth happens best in the context of community, we hope to have everyone at New River involved in either a Growth Group or another similar small group experience. While most groups are sermon-based, others are studies focusing on topics such as parenting, marriage and spiritual growth. We also offer Starting Point for seekers, new Christians and returners.

These home Bible study groups require a 10-12 week commitment, and are comprised of 8-16 people. Growth Groups meet to care for one another, to study God’s Word and to support one another spiritually.
