Growth Track

Sundays, March 3 – 24 | 11:30 am | Chapel

Growth Track is a four-week experience to help you connect deeper with God and who He created you to be. Discover how you can impact the Kingdom of God in a greater way! The classes are free but registration is required and seating is limited.

Contact: Kristie, (616) 261-0156


Week 1: Know God

Knowing God is not an optional part of the Christian life. It IS the Christian life. And He is calling you into deeper relationship.


Week 2: Find Freedom

There is more to life than “just getting by” or “coping with things.” Don’t settle for less than God’s best when the truth has set you free!


Week 3: Discover Your Purpose

You were wired for something special! Understand how your personal and spiritual makeup reveals a path to your purpose. As a part of this week, we’ll walk through a simple personality & discovery survey.


Week 4: Make A Difference

Explore how the way you are created can impact the Kingdom of God in a greater way!


Freedom Ministry Classes 

“…where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17) To live free, knowing who you are in Christ is the privilege of every believer. Freedom Ministry at ResLife is for everyone: those who are facing obstacles or overwhelming challenges and those who simply want to grow closer to the Lord. It is designed to help you hear and respond to God’s voice, identify and remove obstacles hindering your growth, discover your identity in Christ, live the life you were made for and learn how to be an influence in the lives of others.


The Freedom Ministry Process consists of three parts:

1. Freedom Foundation Classes

Wednesdays through February 27 | 6:30 pm | Room 467-A (Entrance A)

These four classes are the starting point of Freedom Ministry at ResLife. Each class provides part of a bigger picture that will challenge you to think differently and encourage you to walk in the fullness of who you are in Christ. No registration is required. To listen to audios of previous Foundation Classes, click here.


Class 1. Introduction to Freedom

God didn’t design us to be in bondage to anyone or anything. In fact, we were created for freedom. But what is freedom? How do I become free so I can live the life I was made for?


Class 2. Lasting Change

Our attempts at change often fail because we try to change for the wrong reason, change the wrong thing or we use the wrong tools. This class helps you grab hold of God’s provision for changing your life from the inside out.


Class 3. Hearing God and Your Identity

God speaks, and the Bible makes it clear that we are able to hear Him. Learn to hear Him more clearly and receive the full impact of communicating with the God who loves you!


Class 4. Identity and Life in the Kingdom

Each of us was designed to be defined by God and Him alone. As we walk in our God-given identity and in the freedom Jesus came to give us, we will take ground for God wherever we go!


Leader: Pastor Deb Kirgis


2. Freedom Topicals 

Next Dates to be Determined | 6:30 pm | Room 467-B (Entrance A)

Designed to follow the Freedom Foundations, these classes address struggles and strongholds that can keep you from experiencing freedom in specific areas of your life. Each session provides a biblical understanding of the topic and concludes with a time of prayer. No registration is required. To listen to audios of previous Freedom Topicals Classes, click here.



To Be Determined


3. Kairos

Next Dates to Be Determined | Rez Center

“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

This two-day event is a time dedicated and set apart for anyone who wants to experience God’s presence, power and truth through a combination of worship, teaching and ministry. Whether you have experienced hurts and trauma or you just want to strengthen your relationship with God, it is a time set aside for stepping out of your environment and into His; a time for encountering Him deeper and greater than ever before; a time for receiving inner healing and breaking strongholds. It is a time for life-changing moments with God! We invite you to come and allow the Holy Spirit to do a deeper work of freedom in your heart. Prior to attending Kairos, we encourage the completion of Freedom Foundations classes (see above).

Small Groups

God created us for community. He knows that life is best when shared with others. Small Groups provide the support, friendship and encouragement we all need to reflect Christ and become more like Him.


Small Groups allow people to GROW together and enjoy group life, CONNECT with other believers and IMPACT the world by discovering their personal ResLife!


In this safe environment, group members can explore their gifts and serving possibilities without feeling vulnerable or exposed. It’s a place where people can honestly share their lives, work on their problems, and be real together.


Small Groups are the best way to experience true biblical community. The goal of this kind of community is to produce healthy believers, full of purpose and a sense of belonging. The relationships forged in group life can take you to the next level in your journey!


God has used small groups of men and women to change the world. That has not changed! The potential of a small group of God-focused people is simply astounding.


Here are the ways to get involved with ResLife Small Groups:
