wHY COMMUNITY GROUPS?

Throughout biblical history and through scripture, meeting with a community of like-minded individuals has helped spur spiritual growth and understanding among believers. We were made for relationships and to be in community. We believe that we grow most when we laugh together, enjoy a meal, learn from each others experiences and study the Bible as a community. While get to experience God, learn, and worship together on Sunday, connecting with a community group introduces us to bible study, prayer, having faith, and authentic growth with believers. It is in these times we grow in our understanding of Christianity and are equipped to share it with others. 

HOW TO FIND A GROUP

We have groups that meet almost every day of the week. We have groups organized by age, gender, and stage of life. We know connecting with a community group is scary sometimes so we want to make it as easy for you as possible. You can view our community group options by clicking here OR you can contact Chan Shaver, or one of our other staff,  who will be glad to have someone connect with you about joining a group.

sunday morning groups

Traditionally known as "Sunday School", we have groups every Sunday morning at 9:30 and 10:45 so that you can enjoy either service. These groups meet on campus at First Wesleyan in one of our many class rooms.

Wednesday evenings we host bible studies on campus. This is some of our most convenient for families because of our children's and student gatherings on Wednesday evenings.  Generally every quarter we have new studies for you to choose and be a part of.
