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.

We know it deeply. It is so hard to juggle work, home, and spiritual life. As working

women, we've wrestled with tough questions:


· How can I be effective in my work, and stay committed to the Gospel?

· How can I be dedicated to my family, when my job is so demanding?

· Why am I working so hard, and still so unfulfilled? 


Sound familiar? Like you, we see a culture that promotes success at all costs, and

working women are falling for it. It's happening every day. Priorities are shifting. Things are getting done . . . but are we doing what matters most?

And that's why we wrote this book. This is the story of how we traded the lies of the

world for the truth of our loving Father--the lessons we learned that challenged culture's

"good things" so we could find the greatest thing.

The book you're holding in your hands is really a conversation--a conversation that

pushes back against our culture with a Gospel-centered approach to work and

womanhood, for the glory of God and the good of others.

This is a 6-week book study with a small group of women. Space is limited, so sign up (by clicking the button below) quickly!

God has created men to have incredible strength. But today’s culture has hijacked masculinity, distorting strength into passivity and abuse. In this 5-part video Bible study series, we will invite men to embrace God’s definition of masculinity and to step into His calling upon their lives to wield their strength on behalf of others. God has designed men to be protectors, providers, and defenders. When men act like men, everyone flourishes.
