At Hanscom Park UMC, we make a commitment to grow in faith together. One way we do that is through Grow Groups. These are small groups that include time for sharing life trials and triumphs, praying for one another, and studying, writing, or serving as a group – all of which us allows us to grow in love for God and one another.
Our Fall Grow Groups at Hanscom Park UMC are now complete. We will have another round of Grow Groups in the spring. Please consider participating as a way to learn, pray, and grow in your faith. Here are some examples of Grow Groups that have gathered in the past:
Sermon Discussion Groups
This group gathers to support each other on their spiritual journeys and reflect on the past week’s sermon topic.
“Inspired” Seekers Small Group for Women
This group was for women who are seeking, questioning, and/or not actively involved in church. We will studied the book Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans.
Band/Choir Small Group
This group gathered before weekly music rehearsal to support each other on their spiritual journeys and reflect on theological topics. Discussion often centered around the music used in worship and personal devotional time.
