Growth Groups

Because relationships are so necessary to our spiritual well-being, at Ignite we have created “Growth Groups” with the purpose of helping us grow closer to God and others. Growth groups are made up of 8-12 people that gather together regularly to connect with one another, learn from God’s word, and pray together. They often meet in people’s homes and provide a wonderful place to share the joys and challenges of life.

Below is the current list of our Fall Growth Groups. Groups will begin the week of September 23rd.  Check them out and find one that fits you and REGISTER today!


Letters to the Church
Leader: Kyle Pfister
Date: Sundays at 5:30PM
Location: Ignite Church Lobby
Childcare: Available Upon Request
Description: What does God want for His Church? For our Church? Don’t settle for just going to church…Be the Church. In this study, be challenged and guided to passionately pursue Christ and His magnificent, beautiful vision for our lives. Experience what it means to be part of this family. His family. His Church.


Leader: Mark Holcomb
Date: Mondays at 5:30PM (Dinner Provided)
Location: Pekin
Childcare: Yes
Description: Have you ever wondered where God is in the midst of the trials of your life? Whether through uncontrollable circumstances or the pain of personal relationships, everyone has experienced unforeseen changes in life.  It’s easy to wonder why God would allow calamity to happen or if He’s in control at all.  In this study, we will learn to navigate the detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will.

everybody alwaysEverybody Always
Leader: Russ Shearer
Date: Thursdays at 6:30PM
Location: Ignite Church Lobby
Childcare: Available Upon Request
Description: What does it truly mean to love everybody the way Jesus loved them–without fear, insecurity, or restriction? Well, it begins by loving people right where you are through serving and helping the neighbors God has placed into your world. It means loving people when they mess up and helping them move past the place of shame to acceptance. Above all, it means not just agreeing with Jesus but actually stepping out and doing what Jesus said. In this study, we will learn practical steps that show following Christ means more than just putting a toe in the water when it comes to loving means grabbing your knees and doing a cannonball!

Holy Discontent

Leader: Melissa Hucal
Date: Wednesdays at 6:30PM
Location: Ignite Church Lobby
Childcare: Available Upon Request
Description: What is the one aspect of this broken world that, when you see it, touch it, get near it, you just can’t stand? Very likely, that firestorm of frustration reflects your holy discontent, a reality so troubling that you are thrust off the couch and into the game. It’s during these defining times when your eyes open to the needs surrounding you and your heart hungers to respond that you hear God say, “I feel the same way about this problem. Now, let’s go solve it together!” This study invites you to consider the dramatic impact your life will have when you allow your holy discontent to fuel instead of frustrate you. This study shows how you can find and feed your personal area of holy discontent, fight for it when things get risky, and follow it when it takes a mid-course turn. As you live from the energy of your holy discontent, you’ll fulfill your role in setting what is wrong in this world right!
