Growth Groups

We want
to be the Church, not a crowd!

Our bible studies are called Growth Groups, and they are at the very core of what we do. They are the place where real ministry occurs as we encourage, support and challenge one another while gathering around the Bible. God doesn’t want any of us to walk this spiritual journey alone – we need each other.

Our desire is for everyone that calls FBC their church home to be involved in a G2 this year. The fall season begins the week of September 8th so that means right now is PRESEASON and it’s time to get ready! Stay tuned for preseason training tips for the fall!

Sign up online or in the Lobby through Sunday, September 8.


How Do Growth Groups Work?

A Growth Group, which is our name for a bible study, is made up of around 10-15 people who meet weekly to study God’s Word, build relationships and serve others. Each group is led by a trained leader and host couple. A typical meeting lasts for about an hour and a half, covers a study based on the previous weekend’s sermon and includes light refreshments. Groups meet during three 10-week sessions a year (Fall, Winter and Spring), taking a break over summer.  Check out Growth Group FAQs for more info.

Growth Group Commitment

Growth Groups thrive on trust and participation! The purpose of this commitment is to help discuss and clarify each group’s goals, guidelines and expectations. A clear agreement is an important starting point towards a successfull group experience.
