Spiritual Growth at First Covenant exists to further deepen the spiritual lives of adults by offering opportunities for transforming Christian discipleship and growth.
Adult Discipleship Group—Misconceptions of God, Wednesday, 6:15pm
Come and explore the many misconceptions that people have about God. We will look at how the Bible shows us who God is and how that impacts our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. The Adult Discipleship group is open to all people—whether you have been a Christian your whole life or don’t even consider yourself a Christ follower—you are welcome to join. See Erik for more information.
Life Groups are the small group ministry here at First Covenant, where we study Scripture, form deep relationships that help us grow in our faith, use our gifts and talents, and take Christ out into our world. It is one of many ways that we generously live out our faith, together. And we have a LOT of fun doing it!
There are currently seven Life Groups that meet two or more times per month during the school year, on a wide variety of topics.
Weekly schedule of activities for adults (September to May):
Sunday Mornings, Spiritual Growth Hour, 11:00am
