Groups

Real life change happens in relationship.

Groups at GSC

Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Summer semester starts on June 23!

Leading a Group

Leading a group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your group successful through Leadership Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a group leader you get to play an important role in that process.

I'm interested in a group!

Groups | Spring 2019

ADULT & FAMILIES

BELL GROUP

Pat & Kate Bell

In an age where the very idea of Truth is being questioned, as followers of Christ, we need to know and be anchored in what His Word says to withstand the onslaught of man’s competing ideas. We will start with reading Matthew 1 in the New Testament, eventually reading through the entire Bible (New Testament followed by the Old Testament). We want to better grasp the big picture of what God’s Word says. Kid's Ministry available for kids in 5th grade and younger.
