Growing in Community

As follower's of Jesus, it's his desire for us to continually grow in our relationship with Him. This is best accomplished within a community of other believers. At fellowship we encourage every person to be a part of a LifeGroup, and for as many as possible to take advantage of our Study and Support Groups.

After taking a look at the available group options, please click the link below so that we can help connect you to the best group for you. 

Three Types of Groups

LifeGroups

LifeGroups are the primary way we grow in community at fellowship. These groups are designed for discussing the weekly message, involvement in the mission, building friendships, and providing encouragement. These groups  meet for 12 weeks at a time, three times a year. 

Study Groups

Study Groups are a great way to supplement a person's study of God’s Word. Skilled teachers offer studies on particular books of the Bible or other Biblical topics. These groups are offered three times throughout the year. 

Support Groups

Support Groups connect people around common needs and life skills. They are a ministry of support and encouragement as you face life’s common challenges. Support Groups are offered three times during the year.
