GROW IN YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY.

We’re each on a spiritual journey. Whether we are just exploring faith, beginning our journey, growing into Christlikeness, or multiplying disciples, we each have a next step of faith to take. One way we can lean into these steps is by participating in a Growth Group - a new offering to help each of us at Bay Area grow spiritually as we walk the Discipleship Pathway. Growth Groups are learning environments that teach, train and equip us in our next faith steps. Each Growth Group lasts about six weeks and has an emphasis on personal growth. There are unique focuses specific to each spiritual life stage, intended to help us establish new habits, embrace new ways of thinking, and become more like Jesus as we learn together in community.
