Grow Groups at Evangel
Our Summer Initiative
Have a desire to interact with Christians during the week, but aren’t sure where to begin? We want to encourage you to try something new this summer! It’s really simple…here’s how it works!
- Think of a place where you enjoy spending time – a fire pit, a room in your house, a man cave, a pool…anything!
- Determine a day of the week and time (an hour/hour and a half max) that you can dedicate to prayer and study of the Word in that place.
- Make up a tear-off flyer that you can hang up in the church with a description of your place, time, and general location and including your contact information for tearing off.
- Pray and wait to see who the Lord brings to grow with you!
It’s our prayer that this initiative will foster encouraging Christian interaction and may even be the start of some more permanent Grow Groups.
Consider joining us in this!

Why Grow Groups?
- God intended for believers to live together in community.
- Iron sharpens iron; when we share our stories and look to the Word for guidance, we help others do the same.
- God wants us to be unified in love; grow groups provide a unique situation to be unified in purpose and to show love.
