Featuring Clay Scroggins
What does it mean to be in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ?
Jesus said that he came so we could "have life and have it to the full." He wants us to enjoy lives characterized by peace, meaning, and fulfillment. And to experience that, we have to be connected to God.
During this three-session study, you'll learn what spiritual growth is, how to pursue it, and a key posture you can assume to fuel your own growth.

Session Two: PRocess

Session three: Fuel
In this session, Clay focuses on a posture that will fuel our spiritual growth.
