Learning Communities at Grantham Church

At Grantham Church, we believe we’re always learning. Our relationship with God grows as we learn more about ourselves, our faith and our purpose. That’s why we offer learning communities for all ages on Sunday mornings. Learning communities are personal spaces that offer you a chance to meet other members of the church and deepen your relationships with others on a journey with Jesus.

Our adult learning communities are intergenerational and meet according to topics. The following learning communities meet at 9 a.m. on Sunday mornings:
