We need each other.

A Growth Group is a group of people who gather to meet each week in an classroom, in a home, or at a local coffee shop. In a Growth Group you’ll get to know each other, grow in understanding God's Word, and pray together.

Growth Groups come in all shapes and sizes, so no matter where you are in life, there’s a group

of people that you can connect with.

2019 Spring growth groups

Heaven by Randy Alcorn

Sunday mornings at 9:30 on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Greg Cross

This book gives us a glimpse of the wonders of heaven. Alcorn addresses our most serious questions about heaven from the Bible--including the nature of judgment--and he answers a few of our less serious questions as well (like the accessibility of cafe mochas in the sweet by and by). Participants will develop a deeper understanding of our eternal destination and find the courage to strive for heaven while living on earth.  


Bible Studies for Life

Sunday mornings at 9:30 on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Diane Anderson & Merrill Eggleston

This study is designed to help disciple participants through in-depth Bible study discussion that address real-life issues. Welcome Home highlights principles from Scripture that can help you become more welcoming to guests and the community. How to Pray will encourage participants to move prayer from a rote, religious practice to a conversation with our loving Father who works on our behalf.



Sunday mornings at 9:30 on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Chad Anderson

This is a sermon-based group. Each week, we will explore the passages from which Pastor John preaches. Conversational, relational, and thought-provoking    


Bible Studies for Life - Open Door Senior's Class

Sunday mornings at 9:30 on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Cathy Gwaltney & Linda Hart

Where the Bible meets life! See description above.


Every Good Endeavor

Sunday mornings at 11:00am on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Rich Herbert and Michael Thompson

In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economical environment, we often question the reason for work: Why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it? Work may seem just a means to an end: 

We do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace. 

But discover how God's plan is radically more ambitious!


The Reason for God by Timothy Keller

Sunday mornings at 11:00am on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Jake Simmons

Why does God allow suffering in the world? How could a loving God send people to Hell? Why isn't Christianity more inclusive? How can one religion be "right" and the others "wrong"? Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God? This study looks at the list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to church as well as the most important reasons for faith.



For Married Couples. Tuesday evenings at the Ringger home. 

Led by Rick & Marla Ringger

What if one word could change everything for your marriage? It can! And that word is CHERISH. Although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: When husbands and wives learn to cherish on another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.This study will discuss how you begin to cherish your spouse.  


God of Creation  By Jen Wilkin

For WOMEN, Wednesday mornings at 9:30 on Fall Creek's Campus. Led by Marla Ringger.

See how God reveals Himself through scripture. It all began with the Word.. This study will dive into Genesis, followed by three critical stages of understanding: Comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenging your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves.

The Best Yes

For WOMEN, Thursday evenings at 6:30pm at the Fall Creek campus. Led by Delores Clark

This study will help you discern the option that shapes all your other choices. Having trouble deciding which situations deserve a "yay" and which a "nay"? Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul? Offering Scripture-laced insights on effective decision-making, this study encourages you to be honest, imaginative, focused, trusting, and humble as you discover the role God most wants you to play.


The Household of God  by David Platt

For MEN, Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm at the Opheim house. Led by Tom Opheim

This study from 1 Timothy gives us the instructions for the community of believers. We begin by looking at the components of our earthly worship. We learn that our worship is an expression of a heavenly assembly. Then we'll move further into on worship by seeing the characteristics of our devotion to God and how this should affect the earthly outpost of the heavenly kingdom we know as "the church".



For WOMEN, Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm at the Yoder house. Led by Tracy Newland.


Systematic Theology   By Wayne Grudem

Thursday evenings at 6:30pm at the Fall Creek campus. Led by Pastor John Newland.

We'll dive deep into God's Word and understand it as a cohesive message centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ. Far from being a stuffy, irrelevant, academic discipline, theology provides a foundation for all of life.



For MEN, Friday mornings at 7:30am at Hotcakes Emporium (Oaklandon/Pendleton Pike). Led by John O'Dell.
