Grow Groups

Fall groups beginning Sunday, September 13. 

Grow Groups are the heart and soul of discipleship and discipleship is the heart and soul of Embark Church. Small Group gatherings are where we build community and experience the growth that comes with relationships. These are the environments where we have fun, learn together and grow in our faith. We believe that powerful change happens when we are in healthy relationships with other believers. Grow Groups are designed to create opportunities for these relationships to be developed.

1&2 Corinthians | Taylor Ott

Sun @ 5:30 PM beginning Sept 13

Join us for a study of 1&2 Corinthians that focuses on Paul's call for unity in the local church. The Corinthian church was fractured because of pride, which led to a skewed view of the gospel, sinful attitudes about things such as speech, and a misuse of their spiritual gifts. At the heart of this book is the reality of the cross and resurrection as pride is replaced with servant-hearted love and unity.
