GROW Groups

Ongoing

GROW Groups are the best way at StoryHeights to grow your faith and grow your community. You were not designed to do life alone, so we've created multiple options all over the city for you to engage with other Christians, study the Bible and have a community around you that will encourage you!

During the summer months, our groups break from the normal Bible study flow, and focus a bit more on allowing time for natural conversation and friendships to begin and bonds to deepen.

GROW Groups meet all over the city on different nights of the week, and if you can't find one that works for you, we'll do all we can to create one that works. Groups reform with every new semester, so you'll never feel like a stranger on the outside. Signups are happening now, so check out the menu below and sign up by using the form below. Once you sign up, your GROW Group leader will contact you to make sure you have all the information you need for your first group meeting.

SUMMER GROUP DESCRIPTIONS

Generous Living- In this casual book-club-style group, you'll study "The Blessed Life: Unlocking Rewards of Generous Living" by Robert Morris. Sign up is required as space is very limited. Please only sign up if you can make all the dates as space is limited and this group is highly sought after.

Creative Writing- In this group, you'll meet other people in the church who are passionate about songwriting, writing for personal process, poetry, short stories, spoken word, and other creative outlets. Sign-ups are not necessary, and childcare is not provided. Please make necessary arrangements.
