Small Groups are a safe place where you can gather with others to grow in your faith journey. 

Groups are arranged in a variety of ways including: 

AGE

Our groups are offered to a range of age groups which spans our entire congregation. Some groups are solely based around age while others are more open to all ages.

GENDER

There is a place for everyone here at FBC. For the seasons of life where you need gender specific mentorship, the seasons when you might be looking for "the one," and even seasons where you're just not sure about relationships all together. There are small groups to help you navigate all seasons.

FOCUS

There are small groups that are more lecture based, some are round table, and others that are more activity specific. We hope you can find a place here to connect.

We desire for everyone to find a place where they can connect and grow with others.
