But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18 ESV
“grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus”
Followers of Jesus are to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. And God has blessed us with the fertile soil needed for healthy growth, His church. So, we are called to meet together (Heb. 10:24-25) and encourage each other in the faith. To grow, get planted!
"get face to face"
To give and receive the personal help and encouragement needed, we have to get face to face with each other. Consider "planting" yourself in a weekly "Grow" (small) group
Additionally, there are special focus groups that meet monthly and assorted electives that will meet for a specified number of weeks, at various times.
To plant yourself in any of these groups simply contact the church office(541-883-2289) and you will be contacted by a leader. Get planted and get growing!
