Why Growth Groups?
As GracePointe grows larger, we are committed to “growing smaller” as well. That is, we grow smaller and maintain close friendships through our growth group ministry where groups meet in homes each week throughout northeast Madison County. Our groups provide a great environment for making friends, growing spiritually and caring for one another.
When Do Growth Groups Meet?
GracePointe offers three growth group cycles each year. Each group cycle is 3 months long followed by a one month break before the kick-off of the next cycle. Plan now to dive deeper into the GracePointe fellowship and make some great friends by joining a group.
Current Group Cycle: Fall Group Cycle kicks of on August 27th

Additional Information About Growth Groups
Christ-centered Relationships: Growth Group Ministry is one of five parts in the basic diet at GracePointe that we believe are essential for every believer. In growth groups, we will have the opportunity to build Christ-centered relationships aimed at sharing our lives together and helping one-another apply biblical truths to our life situations. It is in growth groups that we will practice our faith together. Here, it will become clear that the church is not a building we go to, but it is a spiritual family in fellowship with one another because of our fellowship with Christ. As part of this fellowship, every believer becomes a minister as we care for the needs of those in the group.
Acts 2 Living: The biblical teaching and corporate worship of Sunday morning coupled with the growth group environment allows us to effectively model GracePointe after the church in Acts 2. Scripture records that the early church met in the Temple courts and in their homes daily. May God’s Spirit reproduce that church here at GracePointe as our home groups allow believers to the opportunity for biblical community that the Acts 2 believers experienced!
A Church Of Growth Groups: Because of this vision of “being the church” rather than just “going to church“, we want to elevate the importance of the growth group ministry. Instead of being a church that has growth groups, we believe God is leading us to become a church of growth groups. That is, growth groups is not simple one more activity that we do over on the side in a long list of activities. Rather, it is at the heart of being the church God has called us to be. On Sundays, all our growth groups come together as one body to study God’s Word and to Worship together. When we leave, we then accomplish caring for one another, sharing our joys and sorrows, encouraging and challenging one another in the faith and to be the church in the world through growth groups. The church that gathers is a church make up of growth groups which share their lives together during the week.
