What is a Life Group?
A Life Group is a small group of people, who seek to live life together in Christ. Life Groups provide a safe place where people can connect with one another as fellow Christians, and develop a community and family. Life Groups are the heartbeat of our church, and there is one just right for you! Most of our Life Groups meet in people’s homes or here on campus for a special time of fellowship, encouragement, prayer, and Bible study, just like in the early church (Acts 2:42-47). Until the ‘Safer at Home’ order is lifted we will be meeting in homes according to the CDC guidelines.
The Fellowship of the Believers
‘42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.44 And all who
believed were together and had all things in common.45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and
distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in
their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,47 praising God and having favor with all the
people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.’ Acts 2:42-47
Faith Fellowship is a place to come to Life. We believe that Life is found through connecting to Christ. An essential part of connecting to Christ is through connecting to His people. Life Groups are the place we intentionally gather to fellowship, pray, study, and live out God’s calling in our lives. We weren’t intended to go through life alone but rather together with people that are seeking to follow Christ. We have different groups that meet at different days, times, and places. We’re excited to see you here!

Do you have a hurt, habit, or hang-up? Desire a safe place to process? Overcomers Outreach is an international network of Christ-centered 12-step support groups which ministers to individuals, their families and loved ones who suffer from the consequences of any addictive behavior. We exist to serve as a bridge between traditional 12-step recovery groups and churches. We recover together as we meet to study and grow in God’s Word. This group is open and ANYONE struggling with a hurt, habit, or hang-up looking for a grace filled safe environment to learn the biblical tools necessary to have victory in all areas of life. This is not just for those with addiction to alcohol or drugs. It’s for anyone with a hurt, habit , or hang-up, and are working through a new season of life. It’s a safe place to be who you are and where you’re at. It’s through this that Christ’s grace heals and changes us. Jerry Hurt leads Overcomers which meets in his home 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Please contact Jerry, (727) 510-9910, for more information.

This study is open to anyone who would like to take part! We love you all dearly and look forward to the time when we can be together again! Pastor Colin, Buck Mills, and Jim Conaway facilitate this Life Group.

Friday nights are AWANA / P.N.O. (Parent’s Night Out) in the Fellowship Hall at the main church campus from 6:15p.m.-8:30 p.m. AWANA is an internationally known Bible club for children ages 3 through 6th grade: Cubbies: Ages 3-5 (Children must be potty trained), Sparks: Grades K-2, and Truth & Training (T & T) : Grades 3-6. The letters in AWANA stand for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, which comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. The program is designed to encourage scripture memory. During each AWANA meeting, we will teach children that God is real, that He loves them, and that He has expressed that love through His Son, Jesus Christ. Children will also learn how God can help them in their daily lives. Bible-based lessons will teach them how to obey God in a complex world. The goal of AWANA is to give boys and girls the chance to know, love, and serve God. The club consists of a weekly lesson, awards for scripture memory, and lots of FUN. We’re so excited about the team the Lord has brought together to serve our families for the school year. We look forward to your family participating in AWANA for the 2020 – 2021 schoool year! Brandy Morgan is the Director for our Awana Program.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
