Adult Faith Formation

Growing Stronger in Christian Community

Growing as faithful followers of God never ceases. We are all called to be continually formed, by God, through study, prayer, and fellowship with others. Check out these adult small group faith formation opportunities at Grand View.

Cell Groups

Meets once a week for an hour

Cell Groups are small groups that meet for one hour each week at various locations and times. We call our small groups Cell Groups for one main reason: the Church is to be the living body of Jesus, alive in the world. Just as human cells are the building blocks of the body, so too, Cell Groups are the building blocks of a healthy and vital congregation.
