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 classes 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: Wednesday 7:00-8:00pm - October 14 through November 11th
Where: Indianola First Sanctuary
As we know, just because you give your life to Jesus doesn't mean life stops happening. You still face struggles both from within you and outside circumstances. The good news is that Jesus meant for you to live above those struggles. In John 10:10 He says that He came to give us life to it's fullest! Maybe you've tried to walk that path and have failed, or maybe you never started that path to begin with. There's hope. In this class we will explore why we tend to get spiritually "stuck" sometimes, why we fail and we will dig into the path that the bible lays out for us on how to live in that place of winning in the Christian life.
When: Wednesday 7:00-8:00pm - October 14 through November 18th
