“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community”
— Dorothy Day

God designed us to live and grow in community. Life Groups are the way people grow spiritually and connect relationally at First Christian beyond the weekend worship experience. 

Life Groups are one of the greatest ministry tools we have at F.C.C. They provide opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship and discipleship. They are also a great environment for real relationships to exist and the community experience to develop.

We at F.C.C. believe that Life Groups are at the center of how we ought to fulfill the great call of God to the Church of making disciples.   

 

The name 'Life Groups' is very significant for us at F.C.C. 

LIFE stands for: 

L - learn the Bible - This is a place for families and individuals to study the Bible together with other believers.

I - invest time in serving - Life Groups serve as a place to serve not only the group but also the community in which we exist.  

F - fellowship with friends - Life Groups are a place for community to be built.. We long to create an authentic community. 

E - enhance your faith - the Christian journey is full of twists and turns with a lot of growth along the way; growth that is beneficial not only for the individual but for those around them.

Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshipping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.
— Hebrews 10: 22-25

These background checks are required in addition to proper screening, interviewing, and reference checks conducted by the leadership of the church.

Yet community becomes a place where light can shine on the dark places of our lives. Religion is the great cover-up, but community is the place where “you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32)
