Spiritual Formation Groups

 

GROW Groups (Spiritual Formation Groups) at CBC are one significant way that we try to work with the Holy Spirit to achieve our purpose of “beginning where you are; becoming more like Jesus.” We believe that becoming more like Jesus happens as believers meet together around God’s Word in a balanced environment of truth, love and mission.

It is the goal of GROW Groups to promote spiritual growth, defined as the character of Jesus being formed in us and the mission of Jesus lived out through us. Groups can vary in size, demographics, etc. but all have the common elements of:

  • Bible study - Studying Scripture to be equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • Prayer - Confessing to and praying for one another (James 5:16)
  • Service - Encouraging each other to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25)
  • Support - Caring for one another (Gal 5:13, 1Thess 5:11) and for one or more of CBC's missionaries (Philippians 4:10)

Some GROW Groups meet on Sunday mornings at 8:15 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am. GROW Groups also meet in various homes during the week. Some of these are open to adding new members. Our Men’s Ministry and Women's Ministry have GROW groups as do our Middle School and High School Ministries which they call 242 Groups. Our desire is that all members and regular attenders are part of a GROW Group.

New GROW groups can form as groups grow and replicate themselves. They also can form through the CBC assimilation process which includes a four week introduction to CBC called CBC 101.

Becoming More Like Jesus Studies 

Cypress Bible Church describes its focus as “Beginning where you are, becoming more like Jesus.”  A team of CBC members have put together seven studies describing aspects of what it means to become more like Christ Jesus in character and mission. These studies can be done individually, as couples, or as part of a Formation Group.  We hope you will find these studies helpful on your life-long journey of being conformed to the likeness of God's Son.
