Grow

To grow is not only to learn the scripture, but also to learn to fellowship with each other and grow together in faith and love of others.  We meet in groups to promote learning, serving and fellowship.  Part of what it means to be Methodist is to love God and we believe as we grow in Christ, we grow in the love of God and others.
