small groups


What is a small group?  Following Jesus is not a solo adventure. God wants us to be in community with others. Small groups are a place where people come together with intentionality, growing and learning from one another. At FPC|FD, we are forming small groups of people who seek to learn more about following Jesus. These groups will provide opportunities for personal growth, authentic sharing, mutual support, and meaningful outreach. These groups are for people from all walks of life. You do not need to be a veteran Christian or Bible expert to join.

How to join a group:  You can select any group below that looks like it would work for you. You can attend as an individual or as a family. Find a group that looks like your style, and check it out. They are not organized by age, life stage, or marital status. We want people of all walks of life to interact with each other. You do not need to RSVP. Just show up to the first meeting and you’re in. Once the groups get going, we can help with some rearranging if needed.
