Growth Groups are a core part of Atonement’s identity. Serving as a way to hear God’s story, as well as share our own stories, we encourage everyone to take part in a group. Growth Groups typically focus on the theme in worship from the previous Sunday, and include time for fellowship, sharing part of your life and story, discovering how God’s word connects to your life and story, and praying together. Some groups meet on an ongoing basis, finding time together weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Other groups meet for a cycle in fall, winter or spring. To connect to a Growth Group contact Greg Van Dunk.
New to Growth Groups and/or Atonement? Join us for our “Into to Growth Group” session, hosted by Pastor Greg. Intro to Growth Groups is a pathway into community at Atonement and is offered to those who want to explore or grow in faith and meet other new people. Email Greg Van Dunk (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out when the next session will start. Dinner and child care are provided. Email Pastor Greg (email@example.com) or call the church office (414-422-0400) so we can save a seat for you!
