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.

Growth Group Times


  • Classes For All Ages (Sunday School) - 9:15 - 10:15 am Youth Group and Children's Ministry are also offered during this time.
  • Romans Bible Study - (Room 6) Eric Ruckert will lead us through the book of Romans as we consider where culture is and how we can engage the culture as Christians. 

  • Topical Study - Topical study based on attendee's questions led by Ardi Eichorn, Sundays at 5:30 pm at Joel and Brittney's house, 30994 US HWY 12, Sturgis. Come join us as we have a biblical discussion, small group style, share snacks, and connect with other church members. All are welcome!


  • Midweek Bible Study - Wednesdays from 6:15-7 pm in Room 8. Led by Tim Rouch.
  • Five VI:7 (Spiritual Conversations)- Fourth Wednesday of the month (April-June), 6:15 - 7 pm. Each month we will address current cultural ideologies that are in opposition to God's standards. We aim to train ourselves to comment when we want to say something but are also concerned about being sensitive and preserving friendships. We will coach each other in the questions to ask to keep a conversation going while encouraging the one we are addressing to clarify what they are saying and to think more deeply about the subject. We will address avenues to offer your concern or alternative viewpoint gently. We will also address navigating false ideologies in conversations.
  • Children's Ministry - Wednesdays, 6:15 - 7 pm
  • Youth Group- Wednesdays, 6:15 - 7:15 pm.
