Walk With Me

We encourage everyone to join a group. Walk alongside your community toward Christ. We were not created to do life alone.

Community Groups – Fall 2021 – FLOURISH

Flourish Fall Community Groups

Community Groups

In community groups, people get together for 7-8 weeks in 2 different group cycles each year. Groups typically have 12-14 adults and meet in members’ homes or at church. The topics of study and discussion are written by the pastor and follow his weekly sermons. We share life, bear each other’s burdens, and participate in service opportunities.

Our next community group series begins Sunday, September 19! You will be able to join a 7-week group that will go through the Flourish series. 

Flourish was created to take us through what a life in Christ looks like based on our individual spiritual pathways. We’ll explore how the Gospel makes us thrive, grow, and reach others. The material will cover the book of Colossians. Don’t miss it!

If you have any questions about our upcoming cycle titled “Flourish,” contact Jane Haywood at jane@granadachurch.com.

Leader: Phil Binnie
Conference Room (Room in the Fellowship Hall)

What constitutes a meaningful life? We seek fulfillment in success, prosperity, recognition, relationships and even self-sufficiency, but we always seem to come up short. If you want a bigger vision and greater purpose for your life this accessible study will show you that hope and meaning lie in getting to know and trust your Creator.


Leader: Bryant Moreno
Room 202 upstairs

Take a walk through the Bible’s most comprehensive presentation of systematic theology, the letter to the Romans.

Gentle and Lowly (for Women)

In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as “gentle and lowly in heart,” longing for his people to find rest in him. This book reflects on his words, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of Christ’s affections for sinners and encouraging believers as they journey, weary and faltering, toward heaven.
