Life Groups

We were never meant to go it alone. God created us to be in community with other people—to be supported, encouraged, and challenged in our journey with Christ. That’s because life change happens better in circles of people than in rows of seats. Joining a group may be your next step toward following Jesus, so why not start here?

WHAT IF I DON'T CONNECT WITH THE LIFE GROUP I VISIT?

Our goal at First Christian is to help you find meaningful relationships in which you can grow. We understand that it may take checking out two or three different groups to find the right fit. With that in mind, we encourage you to give each group a few weeks before trying a new one. It usually takes a few weeks for people to break the ice and begin connecting.
