Growth Opportunities

Scriptural Mandate

The Church Spring Green Community Church envisions spiritual growth happening via two pathways that work in tandem with each other:

GROWTH GROUPS

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up, stimulate, and incite one another to love and helpful deeds and noble activities, not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together (as believers), as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching (Amplified Bible).

Our growth groups exist in several forms:

1) Sermon Based: These groups meet weekly to “pound out” the Sunday sermon a little deeper and a little wider. They take what God has given in the Sunday morning teaching and “make it real” together in community. It is a great place for people who have recently begun to attend SGCC to connect a bit deeper with others and build friendships.

2) Theme Based: At times we may group ourselves based on a specific area of interest, whether it be a cultural issue, a common hobby, or an area of scripture we want to study together. If it interests you and will help you navigate your world God’s way, it’s there for you.

3) Events & Retreats: These are one time opportunities for a group of people to take advantage of, offering spiritual experiences to inspire you in your walk with Jesus.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION Romans 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

We are working toward integrating spiritual practices (like prayer, scriptural meditation, solitude, etc…) into our growth opportunities. These practices challenge and teach you to “feed” yourself with God’s truth – allowing Him to transform you from the inside out.

Presently we offer Study Questions in the bulletin each week that you can use to dig deeper into the Sunday teaching (sermon-based growth groups use these for their group discussion). Often there are suggestions that guide you into spiritual activities that create a space where you can interact personally with Jesus Christ.

We also offer an occasional Theme-based Growth Group that meets around the theme of Spiritual Practices.
