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).
The Fellowship of Believers
Acts 2:42–47 (ESV): 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.
Faith Fellowship is a place to come to Life. We believe that Life is found through connecting to Chrit. 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
