Growth Groups

Build Relationships and Develop Spiritually

Grow in your Faith Together

Growth groups at Sturgis Missionary Church are small groups of people growing in their faith and walking with Jesus together.

These groups gather often to connect with one another, build lasting relationships and nurture their spiritual growth. Participating in a growth group is a great way to meet new people and develop life-giving friendships.

Growth groups are divided into Biblical, Topical, or Activity-driven groups.
