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).
We are gradually moving some of our Life Groups and activates back on campus. Other Life Groups are resuming meeting in their homes. Both are practicing the CDC recommended 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!

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 from 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Please contact Jerry, (727) 510-9910, for more information.
