CLICK HERE TO JOIN A GROWTH GROUP

New Growth Groups starting in January 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 on the Connection Card or at the Growth Group table in the Narthex/lobby on Sunday Mornings starting in December 2021, 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 December 2021 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 Armor of God – Starts in January 2022

Sometimes challenges happen in life when we least expect them, and we need to deal with them. For times like these, author Priscilla Shirer leads believers in a battle plan based on Ephesians 6:8-10. First of all, she names the devil as the sponsor of our struggles. Then she asks us to choose a problem, worry or disappointment that has come our way and apply her prayer-writing strategies to see the way through them. There is a book for this course.

Scripture and Soap! – Starts in January 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 hand cream, lip balm, shower steamers, 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 1-3 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 fee $20 each for supplies.

On Mondays

Kingdom Story – Starts in January 2022

Experience the Bible in historical context to see how God’s chosen people of Israel were the beginning of His Kingdom Story, leading to Christ and how we are called to worship today.  God carefully chose a specific people, the descendants of Abraham, and a specific place for those people to live and fulfill a role in bringing about his plan of salvation for the world. In this group we will use stories and events described in the Old Testament to build upon them the historical significance of what God did in that place, and demonstrate how God redeemed His people over and over again, and is still redeeming today, by bringing “shalom”, peace, to their chaos. There is no book for this group, but we will be using a combination of stories from the Bible, lessons and slides from our study trip to Israel, and video lessons from the Ray Vander Laan series “That the World May Know” as our study guides.  Each week we will have a list of verses or stories from the Old Testament, along with some study questions to prepare for the next lesson.
