Growth Groups

On-campus and community groups are available.

A growth group typically consists of ten to fifteen people who gather weekly to share in a gospel-centered community.  The focus of the group is on the study of God’s Word, caring for each other, and spreading the gospel to neighbors and nations.

Types of Groups

Growth Groups meet at a variety of times on different days of the week,
all over Gaston County.


On-campus groups meet on Sunday mornings at Parkwood. There are groups available at 8:00, 9:30, or 11:00.
