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 Study: Gospel Foundations

Meets Sundays, 9:30-10:30am

Gospel Foundations is our Adult Study held Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30am, same time as PreK-12 Sunday School. This is a great opportunity for adults to join a thought-provoking discussion group where it's ok to ask questions. The study of Gospel Foundations will explore what happened “in the beginning” as God laid the foundation of the earth and then established a path for the redemption of His people through His covenant with Abraham. Led by Erin Haven and Judy Jochum, this group is open to all who want to grow in their faith and learn more about the Bible. Meets in the Susanna Wesley room. For more information contact Faith Formation Coordinator, Julia:

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.

Hand in Hand Parents Group

Wednesdays during CFX, 6:30-7:30pm

Hand in Hand Parents Group is an opportunity for parents with kids in the home to gather with other parents and share stories, learn together, and connect. The class derives from the book, "Hand in Hand: Growing Spiritually with Our Children" by Sue Downing. You are invited to join this group of parents as they talk family, faith, and friendship while their kids have small groups for their ages. Meets in the Susanna Wesley room. Simply show up or let us know if you have any questions. Email Julia:
