Growing Deeper, Together

Purpose

The church is a precious gift from our gracious God, and being part of a discipleship small group is one way we enjoy the blessing of community that God has given us. We believe God calls us to abundant life and to obedience to his Word, nourished by the Spirit he has given to us.


The purpose of small groups at TGC is to gather together with other believers so we can encourage one another to grow in our faith and become effective disciples of Christ through Bible study, prayer, service, and fellowship. It is here in this group setting that we also learn and become equipped to help others become followers of Christ.


Our small groups are frequently the place where significant life change occurs, where people feel safe discussing real life and real-life issues. Members are encouraged, equipped, and challenged to become more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ… and to spur others on in their walk with Christ as well.
