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. We have active adult small group Faith Formation opportunities at Grand View.

Adult Bible Study – Grand View Reads

Meets Sundays, 9:30-10:30am

The Sunday morning Adult Bible Study group meets from 9:30-10:30am, same time as PreK-12 Sunday School. Currently the group is following the Grand View Reads reading schedule. This is a great opportunity for adults to join a thought-provoking discussion group where it's ok to ask questions. Led by long time members Erin Haven and Judy Jochum, this group is open to all who want to grow in their faith and learn more about the Bible. All are welcome to join us in the Susanna Wesley room. For more information contact Faith Formation Coordinator, Julia:

Cell Groups

Meet once a week for an hour at various times/locations

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.

Parents Group

Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30pm in the Susanna Wesley room

Parents Group is an opportunity for parents with kids in the home to gather with other parents and share stories, learn together, and connect. Currently, Pastor Tom is taking the class through the Spiritual Gifts and Strengths Finder assessments, where each person learns more about their God-given gifts and how best to use them to serve. You are invited to join this group of parents as they talk family, faith, and friendship. The class meets in the Susanna Wesley room every Wednesday during CFX. Simply show up or let us know if you have any questions. Email Julia:

Grand View Guides

Helping  Guide  People  to  the  Light  of  Jesus  and  His  Christian  Community

 Serving as a Grand View Guide means making a commitment to invite others to worship and assisting them in active involvement in the GV Christian Community. There are 3 areas of focus for a GV Guide: Invite, Engage, and Follow Up.
  • Invite someone to Grand View with a card that has specific information on it. 
  • Engage them on Sunday, Wednesday, or at the event you have invited them to attend.
  • Follow up with them after Worship, CFX, or the event. Do a short debrief / check in, as to how their experience was and answer any questions.

For more information or if you'd like to become a GV Guide, contact the Church Office at:
