At Ezra Church, we believe that life is a team sport – best done together! Growth Groups are a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God, and just have fun! That’s why groups are an integral part of what we do at Ezra Church! We’ve decided to model ourselves after the first century church and have one large weekly gathering (Sunday) and gather in smaller contexts throughout the week (Growth Groups).
We have three Growth Group semesters during the year – each running for 10 weeks.
If you have any questions regarding Growth Groups, please contact Pastor Erik at email@example.com
Summer 2013 Groups
Come join this summer women’s group as we study the book of Philippians together. We will look at Paul’s secrets of rejoicing and contentment as we press forward in living life intentionally. It will be a great time of exploring this book of the Bible together. We will meet at Ezra Church: Stoughton on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
Led by: Nancy Booth
Our group is here to help provide community and encouragement to those in a similar life stage. We’ll also have some fun and eat some great food. This summer, we will be studying the Gospel of Mark.

Each week we’ll meet at one of Stoughton’s Parks and enjoy the great outdoors with a different game or activity. We’ll also pause each night for a brief look at one of Jesus’ parables and to pray for one another. This is a great growth group for the whole family!

What is a Growth Group?
What is a Growth Group? Growth Groups are groups of 12- 15 people who meet weekly around a common interest, study, or activity. They are made up of people like you who want to grow spiritually and connect with others who are heading in the same direction.
When do Growth Groups start? How long do they last?
All Winter/Spring Growth Groups will start the week of February 25. Each Group lasts 10 weeks and then it’s over.
How many Groups can I join?
Because of limited capacity, and to allow room for everyone, please sign up for no more than two Growth Groups.
What about childcare?
Unless otherwise noted, childcare is not provided at Growth Groups. For groups that do have childcare, we ask parents to pay a small fee to help cover the cost. For the 10 week semester the cost is $20 for one child and $35 for two or more children.
Registration for groups is open during the following times:
Fall Growth Groups: September
Winter/Spring Groups: January
Summer Groups: May
