Growth Groups

Living a Great Life is about connections.

People who are living a Great Life are connected people; connected to God and connected to others. Growth Groups are the primary way that we build connections and we believe that everyone at Freedom Valley should be a part of one or more Growth Groups. Growth Groups provide important opportunities to practice the keys to a Great Life:

Seek: When we seek God, we find Him. When we find Him, He empowers us to live a Great Life!
Share: Sharing God with others strengthens them and helps them to live a Great Life…and that’s necessary for us to live a Great Life!
Serve: Using our gifts to serve God and to serve others is a part of living a Great Life!

Some of our groups meet monthly, some weekly, and others meet based on need and are not schedule driven. Regardless of how and when they meet, all of these Growth Groups represent ways to connect. So, get connected and start living a Great Life!

Freedom Valley offers four kinds of Growth Groups to help you life a Great Life:

Discipleship Groups: These groups help you grow in your relationship with God. They include our Core Classes, Bible Studies, and Home Groups.
Service Teams: These groups provide you opportunities to serve. They include Ushers, Greeters, Grounds Maintenance, and Evangelism Teams.
Interest Groups: These groups come together around common interests & activities. They provide you with an opportunity to connect others to Freedom Valley. They include the Motorcycle Riders Group, the Adventure Group, and the Hiking Group.
Sites: Local churches associated with Freedom Valley.
