What Are Growth Groups?
Growth Groups are for any adult wanting to grow in their relationship with Godand fellowship with others at First Hattiesburg. We believe that spiritual growthhappens best through intentional relationships. In Growth Groups, people studythe Bible together and discuss how it applies to their everyday lives. It’s alsowhere we build friendships by praying for and caring for each other.It would be virtually impossible for our sta
, elders and deacons to personallyminister to everyone who comes to our church. That’s why we have GrowthGroups—so that our people can e
ectively minister to each other.

In the New Testament, we see groups of Christians get together in smaller groups,often in each other’s homes to study the Bible, pray together, eat with each other,and basically help encourage each other to live in obedience to Christ. It’s ane
ective and powerful way to take the Bible’s teachings and talk through how theyapply to our everyday lives. In the church, we call this fellowship, or community. Ourfaith is meant to be lived out in the context of relationships with other people. Fromthese friendships, we can learn from each other, encourage each other, and enjoythe life that comes from our faith together.
