Hosanna’s Growth Groups

CLICK HERE TO JOIN A GROWTH GROUP

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, or JUST CLICK HERE!

 

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 the narthex/lobby 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.
