Sunday Morning Groups
We believe that connecting in a small group is the best way to build lasting relationships that help equip you to grow in your journey with Christ. We encourage everyone in the church to be involved with a Sunday Morning Group to study God’s word, serve one another, and change the world together.
Sunday Morning Groups meet each week at 8:45 am. We have a lot of different groups based on your stage of life from young singles to married senior adults. Take time to look at our Sunday Morning Groups on our Groups page, then come study the Word with one and build relationships that will impact your life.
Throughout the week we have a variety of groups that meet for Bible study. These groups, which primarily meet on Sunday and Wednesday nights, are a collection of people from different life stages. There are no studies starting regularly throughout the year. These groups range from men’s and women’s studies to parenting and financial studies. You can find an updated list of what studies are currently taking place on our Groups page.
On Saturday, April 8 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., please join other women in a combined discipleship and fellowship opportunity as we watch the Priscilla Shirer Simulcast together at First Baptist Church (FBC). Registration is $10 and breakfast will be provided by members of our own FBC Men’s Ministry. Lunch is a potluck and everyone is asked to bring either soup, salad, bread, sandwiches, or dessert to share.
