What is the Grow Plan?
Waterline Church’s Grow Plan is a catalyst to help you become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The Plan offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. From the initial decision to accept Jesus as your Lord to your final destination in life-changing ministry, we will lead you step-by-step from establishing roots to thriving to a fulfilling leadership role. The Grow Plan is a series of four classes, Roots 101, Thrive 201, Fruit 301, and Seed 401. Each class is uniquely designed to engage participants in an active learning environment that is comfortable, relational and highly relevant to each person’s faith journey.
WHY SHOULD I START A GROW PLAN?
You should feel like you belong. It’s easy to feel disconnected when you are part of a church that’s always growing and reaching more people. When you’re in one of these classes, you’ll feel like part of the family.
You should experience life change. We believe life change happens best in groups like this. You’ll grow not just in your knowledge of God and the Bible, but you’ll grow in your experiences with God as well. As you learn and pray together with your class, you’ll begin to experience what it means to be an authentic follower of Christ.
You should handle life better. God never intended us to face the pressures and stresses of life alone. With your Grow Plan class, you’ll never have to! Also, as you begin to apply what you’re learning from your Grow Plan, you’ll be better equipped to face the challenges of everyday life.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A GROW PLAN CLASS?
Usually, a class will include some relaxed conversation time as everyone gets settled. The class will be led in an active style of learning, each participant will be invited to engage and interact with the ideas through a series of discussions and activities based on the topic and what you’ve read or watched together. A typical meeting will end with a time to share prayer requests and to pray for one another. Don’t worry! No one will ask you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. You won’t be asked to pray or read out loud or share anything that you don’t want to share. Your level of participation is strictly up to you.
WHICH GROW PLAN CLASS SHOULD I GO TO FIRST?
Each class builds on each other, so it is highly recommended that people attend, Roots 101, Thrive 201, Fruit 301 and Seed 401 in consecutive order. We are convinced that when you are first committed to Jesus, His Church and the steps needed to having a thriving relationship with Jesus, you will be ready to be on mission with Waterline Church to change the world!
HOW LONG DOES A GROW PLAN CLASS LAST?
A typical Grow Plan class will meet for one session that lasts 2–3 hours. The class times vary depending on the number of participants and participation level of the group.
