Growth Groups

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

At North River Church, we embrace God’s call for every believer to Live Sent. Living Sent brings the Gospel into everything we SAY, THINK, and DO.  We want our lives to DEMONSTRATE and DECLARE the Gospel by accepting one another where we are spiritually, investing in one another, and trusting God to develop us in the image of Christ. This is the reason we Live to Worship, Live to Grow, and Live to Serve.

We live to worship and serve because we understand it’s not ultimately about us but about Christ. We want to make much of him and make him known. We live to Grow through groups because relationships with each other matter! Here at NRC we call our small groups Growth Groups. Growth Groups help us build and maintain community. They are coordinated to walk with our teaching in worship. They are NOT a sermon review, they are a deeper dive into the scriptures for life transformation through application and response.

We do this by using the H.E.A.R. method of reading
Highlight: verse(s) that stick out
Explain: what they mean in their context
Apply: them to life
Respond: to them personally

We at North River Church are so committed to this, we have H.E.A.R.  journals available for you in Growth Group or on you own. If you are interested in joining a Growth Group or would like your own HEAR Journal, use the form below to contact Stephen Burks.
