Students have the opportunity to join a Growth Group. In most cases, group members will read a section from a Christian living book on their own time each week, and then come together during lunch to discuss and personally reflect upon material from the book. All of the Growth Group materials are written from a Christian perspective. Joining a Growth Group may be optional, but it is always beneficial. Past groups have reviewed the books, The Search for Significance; 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue; and the video study series, Song of Solomon. Students are asked to purchase the books. However, a student can sell the book back to the group leader if the individual successfully completes the sessions. Please contact or if you are interested in finding out when the next group starts.
