Fellowship of Faith

Discipleship Groups

Spiritual growth happens best when we personalize it with others in smaller settings. In a church our size, it can also be easy to feel lost.  

At FOF we want to help you grow spiritually and connect. A great way is in Discipleship Groups.

What do groups do? Gather together. Laugh. Talk. Pray. Study the Bible or work through a book. Sometimes eat. Serve together. Discuss the intersection of God and life.

How many people? Typically 7-12 per group.

Where do they meet? Some meet at FOF. Others meet at homes, restaurants, or cafés throughout the area.

For how long? Typically 1-2 hours per session. Some meet weekly. Others meet every other week or monthly.

What kind of groups are there? All kinds. See our current groups below.

Who can come? Anyone! Every group has an open chair waiting for you and anyone you invite to come with you.
