Small Groups exist at First Baptist Church for a host of reasons, but all offer the chance to build significant friendships with others, to come to a deeper understanding and experience of faith, and to care for others. Some groups focus on study, some on building community, and some on a specific task or ministry.
Several small groups operate at various locations throughout the year. Topics vary, and may offer Bible, book studies, or focus on particular spiritual practices. Other groups meet occasionally for social activities.
While adult groups are open to all ages there are also study groups specifically for young adults. For more information or to receive the latest “small group connections” brochure, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retreats are offered on a Saturday each year at the beginning of Advent (late Nov. or early Dec.) and Lent (Feb./Mar.). These retreats help shape our preparation for Christmas and Easter.
This group of singers and musicians rehearse weekly and offer music for Sunday morning worship. For more information contact: email@example.com.
