There is power in Groups!

FC GROUPS are designed to help you along in your journey to learn more about God as well as helping you get to know others. Some of the best friendships inside this church were spawned by getting together in a group. We are all about finding a community of people that will walk alongside you and meet you where you are at. They will also encourage you and constantly help you become the person God wants you to be. We know it can be a little unnerving signing up for your first one but we think the benefits are life-changing! Sign up HERE or below and a leader will be in touch with you to answer any questions.

*All groups meet at FC unless otherwise indicated.

Like lots of people, you may have some questions about faith. But you don't need someone to lecture you on what to believe. You need someone who is helpful, someone who has been where you are and has had their own questions. You need someone who understands the Christian faith and can offer helpful explanations yet allow you to draw your own conclusions. That's exactly what you'll find with  Starting Point .   Starting Point  is not a lecture. It's a conversation. On any given week you can participate or you can just listen. It's facilitated by leaders who are both authentic and knowledgeable. They’re experts at creating judgment-free zones where you can safely explore what faith is all about. They’ll guide you through an experience that’s helped thousands of people process their questions about faith. We’d love for you to join the conversation on  Tuesdays 7:00PM HOME  Group.   John and Michele Vigneri

In this book study, the author, Stasi Eldredge, meets readers in their painful realities and offers an invitation to a  joy  that is  defiant  in the face of this broken world. This  joy  does not Pollyannaish-ly ignore life's heartache; rather, it insists that sorrow and loss do not have the final say. Join other women (cap 8) on  Tuesdays  at  6:30PM  for this  HOME  Group.   Katie Jacobs

A few essential insights into the Bible can clear up a lot of misconceptions and help you grasp the meaning of Scripture and it's application to your twenty-first-century life.

Covering translation concerns to different genres of biblical writing to thinking in context - this book helps you understand the different parts of the Bible - their meaning for ancient audiences and their implications for you today - so you can uncover the inexhaustible worth that is in God's word. Coed. Friday 6:30PM Free Childcare.
