Summer 2017 Small Groups
To Live is Christ: An In-Depth Look at the Book of Philippians
As a group, we’ll go in depth discussing and learning God’s word through Paul’s writing to the church of Philippi. We’ll see what Paul wrote to the church while he was in jail as well as see how it applies to our life today.
Embark’s mission is to help people spiritually grow
Spiritual growth does not happen in isolation. It occurs by being exposed to in-depth teaching, seeing its life application, encountering Jesus in trusted relationships and engaging in meaningful discussion. These actions take place in grow groups.
Grow Groups are small groups of usually 6-12 people hat meet on a sustained basis to encounter Jesus, encourage one another and educate themselves about the things of faith. So important are they that they are central element at Embark Church for spiritual growth. Everything revolves around them.
Grow Groups operate operate on a semester system (spring, summer, fall). They usually meet in homes, where an informal meal is available and then teaching. The meal is important because connecting and fellowshipping with one others is essential in fostering a learning environment. Food is the best way to do this. Also, childcare is always provided.
Before each semester, there is an opportunity to explore what is offered and ask questions. The course offering and explanation is offered and there are opportunities to sign up on this webpage, at church or during our small groups launch parties.
