Circles are better than rows

II want to personally invite you to experience “Doing Life...Together” through a Life Group. In a Life Group or small group, we believe that you build and foster relationships while creating a connection with others in the body of Christ to strengthen the bond with our Creator. Our mission at FA is to love God, love others, and service the world. Life Groups are the way we fulfill loving others. It is huge!

Please prayerfully consider joining, or even hosting, a Life Group to experience, “When two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.” (Matthew 18:20, The Message) What an amazing promise to His people.

If you have any questions that I could assist you in deciding which Life Group is best for you please feel free to contact me.

We strongly believe that connection, relationship and discipleship all stem from connection to a Life Group®  FAC has these groups running year round and anywhere between 10-15 different types of groups are functioning at any given time.  Most follow a 5 week schedule, meeting every other week for 5 weeks.  Other are on going.  Some are nice a month, but  regardless of the group they all have one thing in common, connection!  The feeling of big church made small in relationship.

There are four types of Life Groups®
•   Social Interest Model -These groups center on the social interaction that is typically around an interest, i.e golf, hunting, fishing, scrapbooking, batting, etc.  They meet in peoples homes as well as location where the interests find their expression.

•  Hobbies & Passions Model -T/hese groups meet around common interests.  i.e. Fishing, sports, scrapbooking, hunting, crafts, fitness, shooting range, motor cycles, ATV, canoeing/kayaking, hiking, walking, biking, antiquing, etc.  Their locations and meeting times depend on the area. and even the season of the year.

•   Bible Study Model  -These groups meet in homes, on campus, local eating establishments, parks etc.  They center on books of the Bible or on books from Christian authors that the group goes through together.  They are engaging and social based as well, and usually have food attached.  Some have child care are well.

•   Sunday Series Model  -These groups meet in homes and on campus and center on the message from the previous Sunday.   They dig deeper into the message with questions and added verses provided to them.  This helps the message stick even better and find greater application into personal growth.  Food is usually attached, as is child care for some of them.   

"And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”
