CLICK HERE TO JOIN A GROWTH GROUP

New Growth Groups starting in September 2022.

What is a Growth Group? 

Growth Groups are Hosanna’s groups of 15-20 people that meet to learn more about the Bible, grow in their faith, and hang with some great new friends. 

 

Is there a group that’s right for me? 

There are various groups to choose from this semester that meet at different times and almost every day of the week, so you’ll have the chance to find the group that is right for you. And you’ll have the opportunity to meet others who share your experiences. 

(Let us know if you do not find a group that works for you because of the time it is offered or interest, so we can continue to plan for upcoming semesters.) 

 

How do I sign up? 

Sign up either in the Narthex/lobby on Sunday Mornings starting in August 2022, or

What happens when I sign up? 

When you sign up, the leader of your new Growth Group will contact you and introduce themselves and provide any needed information to have a great experience. 

 

When will my group meet? 

Our Growth Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just 60-90 minutes long. Groups meet 10-12 times over the semester. It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term. 

 

How much do the materials cost? 

There is no required cost. We accept donations for the books. If you’d like an exact cost of your book, please stop by the Growth Groups Table in Hosanna’s narthex/lobby starting in August 2022 or email the church office by Clicking Here. You may also purchase your own book or look for a copy at the library. 

 

What will the people in my group be like? 

Growth Groups are made up of a variety of people who attend Hosanna. You’ll meet some new people as well as reconnect with familiar faces. Growth Groups are a safe and fun way to connect with others and meet some wonderful people.

The Life of Paul – Starts in September 2022

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Saint Paul is recorded saying in Philippines 4:13. In this fall Growth Group we’ll read and reflect on key Bible passages about Paul’s life and mission in the early Christian church. We’ll use the book, THE LIFE OF PAUL, from Rose Publishing.

Group Facilitator – Charlotte Kurt

Sundays – 10 AM at Hosanna Lutheran Church

Scripture and Soap – Starts in September 2022

Many people don’t feel they have time to read their Bibles on a regular basis, and are intimidated by memorizing Scripture. Just like with perfecting a craft, memorization of Scripture requires repetition and practice. In this group we are going to have FUN combining crafts and Scripture. During the group time we will make a variety of different body products, including body lotion, lip balm, hand sanitizers, sugar scrubs, and 3 different kinds of soap. Each week we will work on a different project, practicing our scripture memorization as a group at the same time. There will be 1-2 Scripture verses to memorize for each session. You will need access to a Bible for this study, but it will require no other books. There is a $30 fee for each participant to cover supply costs.  We will have 7 sessions, meeting from 1-3 PM on Sundays.

Group Facilitator – Cathy Konkler

Sundays – 1:00 PM at Cathy’s Office in Newark.

Habitat for Humanity – Starts in September 2022

Hosanna will be coordinating with Habitat for Humanity to organize a small group of individuals who would be interested in doing small repairs for elderly couples, widows or people with disabilities on their residences. The work will include drywall repair, painting walls/ceilings, small plumbing jobs, light fixture replacements, or installing handrails. This is a great way for you who are handymen or women to use your talents and skills by showing compassion and care for those in need in our community. Our first meeting will be on a Saturday morning over breakfast at a local restaurant at a time still to be determined in September. There will be no weekly meetings, but members of this group will be notified as job requests are received. Group Members can then volunteer as their schedule allows.
