Growth Groups

Go deeper at Indianola First

To be living is to be growing. In the Christian life, growth is part of God's plan to fulfill the potential He has placed in us. That's why we offer classes called "Growth Groups," these transformational classes cover topics that range from theology to parenting and everything in between. Our classes meet on Wednesday nights at various times throughout the year. You can find the current Growth Groups listed down below. If you would like to sign up for a class, or have any questions about them. Feel free to fill out the form below.

When: April 10 - May 15

Where: CAC Room

Time: 7:00-8:00pm

Many Christians struggle with the task of reading the Bible, despite knowing they should engage with it regularly. Some find it hard to muster the enthusiasm to delve into God's Word, while others, though genuinely passionate, may lack direction on where to start. Furthermore, there are those who feel bewildered by the myriad interpretations of the Bible, unsure of whose perspectives to trust.

If you've ever found yourself in any of these situations, know that you're not alone. To address these challenges, John Bevere developed the Bible Matters course. In this course, Scott Lindsay from Logos Bible Software and John provide guidance and equip you with the necessary tools to derive genuine enjoyment from studying the Bible.

Reading the Bible shouldn't resemble completing homework or ticking off a spiritual obligation. Instead, it should be one of the most thrilling parts of your day. With the appropriate tools and approach, it can become just that!

Are you feeling spiritually stuck?

Do you often find yourself thinking, “There must be more”? The Ultimate Journey will help you identify the areas where you are struggling and assist you toward a deeper relationship with God so that you can experience the fullness of the incredible relationship, he wants to have with you.

Has something happened that is holding you back?

Is there something in your life you don’t know how to “get over” or “get past”? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, or addiction? Have you experienced emotional, physical, or sexual abuse? Were you abandoned? Are you the casualty of a divorce? Did someone close to you die? You’re not alone. There is hope. The Ultimate Journey will help you identify and work through your past while preparing you for an abundantly successful future. The Ultimate Journey teaches a new way of looking at yourself.

Are difficulties in your life negatively affecting the people around you?

Do you ever say or do something and then ask yourself, “Why did I do that? Is that the kind of person I want to be?” Do you find yourself hurting the very people you love the most? Unfortunately, hurting people often hurt people. You don’t have to be a slave to your emotions or circumstances any longer. The Ultimate Journey is ready to guide you toward the freedom you’ve been looking for.
