Life Groups

We here at First Baptist strive to be a church of small groups. Life Groups are small groups of people that gather together with the intention of doing life together. In a small group, you will read the Word, discuss and apply the Word to real life situations, pray for each other, support each other, and ultimately become a little family that is centered on the Word! It is an incredible way to get connected to the people of the church. The groups vary in topic and age, so find the one that fits you and give it a shot!
