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.

2018 FALL 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 & Brad Poteat

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.


The Art of Marriage

Sunday mornings at 11:00am on Fall Creek's campus. Led by Rick & Marla Ringger

Presenting God's Design for Marriage. Marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a true art form. The Art of Marriage weaves together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes and more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God's design.


Counter Culture / Faith-Works by David Platt

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

In this day when social issues are creating clear dividing lines in society, moral and political neutrality is not an option for those who believe the gospel. It's simply not enough to focus on only those issues that are most comfortable--and least costly--to us. This group invites us to fix our gaze on the holiness, goodness, love, truth, justice, authority, and mercy of God revealed in the gospel and to live with conviction, courage, and compassion in the midst of a culture that is drifting further from the truth every day.



Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm in Greenfield at the Tompkins home. 

Led by Sam Tompkins

Is the fruit of the Spirit evident in your life, or do your find yourself living according to the flesh or the "compulsions of selfishness"? Paul's words in Galatians are an encouragement to pursue a life of holiness--not in your own strength--but in the knowledge of God's empowering grace in your life.  


Discerning the Voice of God  By Priscilla Shirer

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

Discover the root to clear and daily communication with God: humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and help us discern His voice in everyday life.

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

The letter to the Hebrews makes clear that only One deserves to hold the primary place in our lives. While we are busy idolizing our move up the corporate ladder or placing all our hopes in our kids, Jesus offers us a better position, a better covenant, a better hope, and a better sacrifice. Only when we give Jesus His rightful place in our lives will everything else fall into its rightful place.


Counterfeit Gods  by Timothy Keller

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

Have you ever thought money, power, or love would bring you happiness? Discover how only God can wholly satisfy our cravings! Keller explores Scripture to demonstrate how our hearts can turn good, wholesome things into idols that drive us. Using classic Bible stories, he reveals the key to understanding our society and transforming our own minds.


Discerning the Voice of God   By Priscilla Shirer

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

See description above. (Childcare not provided.)


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.


Radical   By David Platt

Thursday evenings at 6:30pm at the Fall Creek campus. Led by Wyatt Spencer.

Take a transforming journey in authentic discipleship. This group will first talk about how American Christianity has manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences and then challenge participants to rediscover the biblical path forward.



For MEN, Friday mornings at 7:30am at designated locations. Led by John O'Dell.
