This is a four-fold resource for reflecting on personal spiritual growth and reflecting on how we will respond to God’s invitation to GROW as Christ’s disciples. Includes four key elements: 1) reflecting on ways to GROW with God, 2) responding to God’s invitation to GROW, 3) recommending ways the church can help us GROW, and 4) reviewing our journey to GROW with a friend or family member.
