The Adult Spiritual Growth Ministry focuses on developing our understanding and practice of the way of Jesus. We hope that our lives do not remain stagnant or stuck, but that we grow. Biblical images such as a growing body or fruit-bearing branches help us imagine a way of life that expands and flourishes in the love of God.
Sunday morning and Wednesday night classes form the heart of this ministry. Through our reading of Scripture we see Jesus' life portrayed in the Gospels, deepen our understanding of Him through the Old Testament, and examine the hearts and lives of His first followers through the Epistles. Various topical classes apply the teachings of Jesus to parenting, marriage, work, friendships, finances, and other areas that help round out a life that fully embodies God’s purposes. The real measure of Spiritual Growth, we believe, is not found in knowledge alone but in the growing expression of God’s love to those around us.
The ASG ministry works in cooperation with other Meadowbrook ministries of serving, sharing, and compassion to lead us more fully into the life of God… to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
