Discipleship Groups

Discipleship Groups

Biblical teaching | Fellowship | prayer

Spiritual growth happens best when we personalize it with others in smaller settings. We want to help you grow spiritually, connect with God, and connect with others. A great way is in Discipleship Groups.

Connect with other people around a spiritual topic. Groups focus on devotion to the apostles’ teaching, prayer, and other spiritually-related practices. Think Bible studies, prayer groups, and accountability groups. It's our way of fostering Acts 2 community.

How do I Join?

It's easy. Just find a group you like and check it out. Every group is ready to welcome you. Reach out to the leader for more information. And if it's at FOF, just show on the day and time they meet!



Learn How to Pray

Prayer is like learning to talk. It comes naturally, especially the more we do it, but is also a skill to learn. How did Jesus pray? Those first Christians? And others for centuries? What do they have to teach us? This eight-week class dives into Biblical prayer and the examples of others who can teach us the art of intimate communication with God.
