Small Groups

Life is Better Connected

Community is important to growing in your relationship with Jesus. Mini-church groups at FAC help to foster authentic community in Christ. These close communities allow all participants to fellowship, study His Word, pray for one another, help each other in practical ways, or serve others. We want to enable you to start your own group or find a group to join. Click on the links below to help you get started.

Start a Group

Follow the steps below to start a group and we’ll support you with what you need. It’s easy to start a group with friends from church, a team you serve with in ministry, or anyone else.

  1. Grab a few people who are interested in meeting together as a group.
    Your group can gather around reading a book, serving your community, or simply doing something fun together. Whatever your focus is, we want to help you all grow to become more Jesus-centered, relationally healthy, and missionally engaged. Here are some examples of things your group could get together for:

    • Weekend sermon discussion
    • Bible study
    • Gardening
    • Game night
    • Music
    • BBQ
    • Community clean up
    • Workout
  1. Let us know that you started one. Please use [this form] to let us know who’s in your group, who will serve as a point of contact, and other info. This will also help us to connect you to even more leader resources.
  2. We’re here to support you! Check out the “Curriculum” tab above for helpful resources you can use with your group. We will support you with moving your group toward growing in relationship with Jesus.

Meet Online

During this season we encourage you to continue to meet together with your group. If you are uncomfortable with meeting in person, you can meet together online!

Choose a study to do at home (if you aren’t doing one already). Here are some options:

Meet online to chat. Decide which format to use for meeting online to discuss the Discussion Questions. Here are a few options. Click on the link for a tutorial:

Be mindful of video chat etiquette. Online video chat has immensely blessed groups to be able to engage with each other. Through the past few weeks, we’ve learned a few best practices and chat etiquette. Try to do the following when meeting with your group online:

  • Be on time.
  • Be “camera-ready.” Make sure you and your background are appropriate.
  • Select a location that is quiet and free from distractions.
  • Be patient with the technology and expect glitches from time to time.
  • Mute your mic when you are not talking.
  • Speak clearly and wait your turn.
  • Use headphones if you can.
  • Ask for permission if you are going to take a picture of your group OR video record the session.
