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: Wednesday 7:00 - 8:00pm June 16th through July 21st

Where: CAC

Have you ever wonder how you can go through life and not let the hard times bottom you out? The answer is eternal perspective. When the truth of eternity is in our hearts, we can walk through the greatest of trials with a smile on our faces. Eternity is more than just something that will happen "someday," if we let it, it should be the motivator for our day-to-day decisions and the lens with which we view our relationship. In short, an eternal perspective becomes our default operating system. Unfortunately, many believer have only scratched the surface of what Eternity is and what our place in it will be. In this six-week course, we will explore the reality of the life to come through the lens of the bible. The video sessions will be led by speaker and author, John Bevere. The book for this class is optional, but highly recommended. You can purchase it online here, or you can purchase a copy during the first class for $15.

The Kingdom

Where: Fireside Room

The Kingdom is a 6-week journey from Genesis to Revelation, discovering the epic theme that unites the entire Bible—the Kingdom of God. It's a story of violence and peace-of intrigue and romance-of revolution and redemption. It's a story as ancient as time itself...and this mighty saga includes us all.
