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 6-12 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, or if it's at FOF, just show on the day and time they meet!

Understanding Spiritual Warfare

The Bible talks about it, but so few of us understand it, let alone pay attention to it, even if we sense it at times. This summer we're using the book Understanding Spiritual Warfare by Sam Storms as a guide and foil to what the Bible says on this misunderstood topic.

Time: Wednesdays, 9:15-11am

Location: Island Lake
