Our names are Bret and Dianne Lane, we joined Cultivate pretty much at the beginning in 2015.
We were not really sure what we were looking for, but knew we wanted to be more involved in Argyle UMC and meet people around our age that we could connect with. What we found were different people with different backgrounds brought together by faith. It is nice to be able to share and grow your faith with a diverse group of people. We have enjoyed not only growing in our faith with the different topics and bible studies that we have done, but also have enjoyed getting to know the members of Cultivate with various different social activities such as a crawfish boil and attending a performance of The Nutcracker in which one of the members had a role.
We hope as we grow our faith and our family that Cultivate will continue to be a place where we can come to be grounded in God’s word and apply it in our everyday lives as well as continue to meet new people and grow friendships we know will always be special to us.
Cultivate was formed in Fall 2015 to fill the desires of adults in their mid-20's to 30's to have a Life Group that they could call their own. Within this Life Group, we wanted to create a space in which we would "cultivate" our own relationship with Jesus, as well as serve others in need. Cultivate welcomes those who are married or unmarried, have kids or do not have kids; we support each other in this stage of life with fellowship and social activities outside of class in addition to our regular meeting on Sundays at 11am. Our Life Group incorporates multimedia presentations and discussion about the challenges that Christians face, such as prayer, discipleship, and service. We invite you to come "grow" with us!
