Small Groups

Small Group Studies

Being part of an FPC small group Bible study is an excellent way to develop a deeper level of fellowship with others in the body of Christ. All of our small groups either share meals together or have some other form of fellowship time that provide opportunities for you to develop stronger friendships with other Christians. Studying the Scriptures together, sharing prayer requests, and praying in a small group also strengthen the bonds we share with other believers.

Some of FPC’s small groups are designed to minister to specific groups and some are open to all. Our small groups meet on different days of the week and at different frequencies — weekly, monthly, or every other week.

The following list details specifics for each group so you can find one that works for you.
