Spiritual Growth Hour

From September - May, Spiritual Growth Hour is an opportunity to go deeper in growing
together in faith and relationships on Sunday mornings. What’s being
offered varies, depending on the season. 

Connect Small Group Ministries

The Small Group Ministries at FCC are all about relationships. 

Our goal is for more people to know more people. 

To help you understand how this is lived out, we want you to keep two words in mind: deep and wide.

  • Deep: LifeGroups (LGs)
  • LGs are groups of people making a longer commitment to grow deeper in relationship with one another. Some LGs have met for years, some are restarting, and some are just getting off the ground. Some LGs meet on the second Sunday of the month during the Spiritual Growth Hour, while others meet outside church.

  • Wide: Small Groups (SGs)
  • SGs bring people together around a wide variety of shared interests (a book, running, a meal) with a lighter commitment level. SGs often exist for a season, not indefinitely. Some SGs on Sundays during the Spiritual Growth Hour, others will meet outside church.

Bible Studies

From September - May, Bible Studies meet regularly on Wednesday Mornings (from 9:30am - 11:00am) 

and Wednesday Evenings (from 6:15pm - 7:30pm)

in addition to the offerings during the Adult Spiritual Growth Hour on Sunday mornings.
