Small groups are one of the most effective ways that we can grow in God's Spirit. They connect us more intimately with God, with one another, and with who God is calling us to be. Assurance has many small group opportunities that serve as a means of God's grace on various days, times, and with various topics. Check out the other pages on this Adult tab to see if something is right for you! For more information on adult discipleship, please contact Pastor Daniel or call 704-391-9567.
LifeGroups will exist to help people connect relationally and grow spiritually through intentional times of fellowship, study, support, and service together. While Growth Groups are more short-term studies built around a given topic, LifeGroups are long-term committed groups built on relationships. If you are longing to do life together with others who can help you grow as disciple of Jesus and go serve Christ in the world, Life Groups are for you.
LifeGroups meet in people's homes at least every other week for an hour and half each time. While all LifeGroups are unique, all LifeGroups have include the following:

We use the words of Acts 1:8 along with the church's call to Spirit, Share and Serve for youth discipleship at Assurance. We have opportunities for youth grades 6-12 to study, worship and fellowship on Sunday Mornings, Sunday evenings, and Wednesday evenings.
This opportunity is especially designed for those students who want to dive deeper into the understanding of what it means to be called "Christian." These students will also be a part of a covenant community who are committed to study what it means to be called a "United Methodist." Students completing this 11-month program will discern their committment to God and His church through this confirmation experience. Midway through the journey, all students will be assigned to an adult mentor. This adult servant is a key support to help the student grow in their faith and discern their call to be a Christian, and United Methodist.

At any given time while entering the children's ministry programs, classes, or even the hallway (at either Campus), one will find much going on. There will be laughter, singing (loud singing!), creative energy, experiments, mini dramas, small group discussions, and much, much more. To the normal eye, this may all appear to be just church made Fun, but in reality a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ is being formed within each child. Every single program, group, or activity is designed with that purpose in mind. It is our hope that all that we do will connect the children to Christ and the three S's of Assurance:
These activities are designed so that the children will learn all about God, the Bible, Christian themes and Life Application.
These activities will help the children feel God and His presence, ultimately growing into a closer relationship with Him.
These activities will explore different ways that even the smallest among us are called to serve and help others.
We are very proud and excited about our programming for children.
Come and see what it is all about!

Safe Sanctuaries offers clear child abuse prevention and risk reduction policies that all local Methodist churches have been mandated to have had in place and operational by December 31, 2005. In this packet, you will find the policy, more defined information regarding the individual procedures around some of our unique programs, as well as the needed informational volunteer application forms.
You should be aware that we have gone to great lengths to provide a nurturing, loving environment where you can feel secure in leaving your child. A church should be a safe place, never a place to feel threatened by any form of abuse; whether physical, emotional or sexual.
Our efforts involve, but are not limited to, background checks, visibility, age requirements, roving monitors, and/or multiple adults in each room.
