ETHOS ONLINE GROW CLASSES / SUMMER 2020
We are all being formed and shaped by something. The question is — what is forming and shaping you?
Ethos Grow Classes have been a part of our spiritual formation as a church family. Although we won’t be able to gather in person this Grow Class season, we still want to offer opportunities for you to grow in your Love for God and Love for People.
We are launching Online Grow Classes this summer. Ethos Online Grow Classes are formational and practical 4-8 week courses designed to educate and equip the Ethos Church family to live into our mission to Love God, Love People, and Awaken a Movement.

WHAT ARE ETHOS ONLINE GROW CLASSES?
Ethos Online Grow Classes are formational and practical 4-8 week courses designed to educate and equip the Ethos Church family to live into our mission to Love God, Love People, and Awaken a Movement. Grow Classes teach participants Biblical knowledge and give practical tools for deepening our relationship with God, other believers, and those who do not yet know God. Each class is designed for the purpose of (1) growing deeper in spiritual maturity and (2) going wider with our mission to make disciples of Jesus in all the nations.
WHY DOES ETHOS CHURCH OFFER GROW CLASSES?
Ethos’ desire is for every family member to understand and embrace our purpose as followers of Jesus, and Grow Classes are the training ground for living into our church mission to Love God, Love People, and Awaken a Movement. This mission is a commitment to faithfully obey two key instructions from Jesus found in scripture:
1. In Matthew 22:37-39 (the Greatest Commandment), Jesus shares that our greatest responsibility is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
2. In Matthew 28:19-20 (the Great Commission), Jesus gives this final instruction to his disciples: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you."
We desire to equip every member of the Ethos family to be joyfully obedient to these commands.
WHEN & WHERE DO ETHOS GROW CLASSES MEET?
When: Due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are not able to meet in person. We are offering Online Grow Classes this Summer (May–July) that will meet via Zoom once a week as scheduled by the teacher/facilitator for 4-8 weeks.
Where: This year...ONLINE! Typically, Grow Classes meet in various places throughout the city — homes, office spaces, community rooms, etc. In some ways, this will still be true as we leverage Zoom for all our Grow Classes this summer. Each class will meet weekly for 4-8 weeks online via Zoom, with some classes having content to work through on your own throughout the week.
