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 spurned 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.  

 Here is this semester's list of FC Groups

"Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory." 1 Peter 1:2 (NLT)  So, now what?

How do we navigate through today's world using  Christ's love  instead of following our feelings?  Join this group as we hunt through the words of Peter, one of Jesus's best friends and disciples: a simple fisherman who society spurned and ignored, but upon whom Christ built his church. Bring your pain, questions, frustrations, fears, struggles -- and  let's get real!   6:30PM Perk on Main  in  Middletown.      Becca McGowan

Do you feel lost in a difficult season, wondering, “GOD, WHERE ARE YOU?!”  This semester, we are studying the book, by John Bevere, called " God Where Are You? ".  The book teaches about 'the wilderness journey', a period where every Christian man goes through or will go through in his life. Using examples from the Bible, you will understand the 'wilderness journey' what it means in our walk, and how to avoid being in the wilderness longer than we need to be. The group will work through common misconceptions of this wilderness journey and understand that being in the wilderness is not due to something we have done or that we've angered God. This will be important for you in your faith walk, and help you on your walk as a Christian man. This group meets every  Thursday  evening  6:30PM  at  FC  in the  Kidz Club .  There is an option to gather at 6:00PM to share concerns and pray.    Ken Morrison and Joseph Bouley

Story of God:  We are living in a time and culture that is increasingly choosing to form and shape their worldview and beliefs about God through oral means; relationship, experience and stories are the distribution channels of belief in our postmodern society. This group explains why storytelling is so important in communicating the gospel and making disciples in the time in which we live. You’ll experience the Bible come alive in this narrative and dialogical experience.  5:00PM at FC    Dorothy Bair and Joann Keithan
