What Are Growth Groups?
Growth Groups are essentially short-term small groups where believers are able to interact with one another and grow in the grace and knowledge of God. Growth Groups meet in homes, at the church facilities, at the coffee shop, and basically anywhere two or more believers would like to gather. Specifically, Growth Groups are offered to meet the following needs: (1) to increase the opportunities for involvement of Hebron’s members in the area of discipleship, (2) to build a greater sense of “community” among Hebron’s members, and (3) to serve as “front door” outreach opportunities to impact persons in our immediate community with the Gospel.
Growth Groups are forming now. If you would be interested in facilitating a group and/or if you have a topic that you would like to recommend that would be helpful for spiritual growth, please contact Theresa Broussard or one of HBC’s Ministerial Staff Members.
When Do Growth Groups Meet?
Growth Groups meet when you can meet. They offer the flexibility that is needed in your busy lives. One of our desires has been to have small groups use our traditional Sunday evening time frame and most still do. The groups meet typically the first (1st) and third (3rd) Sunday of the month from 5:00-7:00 PM. Since the launch of our first semester of Life Groups, we have found that some groups work better on another night and time of the week. We welcome all groups whether you meet on Sundays or not. Our goal is to include as many people as possible in weekly small group discipleship.
Other Information about Our Growth Groups
* Growth Groups are intended to be “open” groups in the sense that all of HBC’s members of all ages are made aware of the studies and encouraged to participate. Persons wishing to participate contact the host homes to sign up for the studies. Host home leaders are encouraged to invite people in their neighborhood. You as a host home leader will have to make a determination as to how many people you will be able to host.
* Each group can make a determination concerning refreshments and/or food at your small group. If you do have food, consider involving as many members of your group as possible in coordinating snacks, etc.
