FBC Small Groups | Starting Sept. 26 | Sign Up Soon!
This September FBC will launch small groups meeting in homes on Sundays. These groups are for all adults who attend FBC including newcomers. Groups will start meeting on Sept. 26 either at 3:00 PM or 6:00 PM. They will meet 10 times, every other week but only once a month in Nov. and Dec. The ten dates are Sept. 26, Oct. 10, Oct. 24, Nov. 7, Dec. 5, Jan. 16, Jan. 30, Feb. 13, Feb. 27, and March 13. Grab a bookmark at the signup table for the dates. Parents will need to make their own arrangements for child-care. You may want to pick a group that is close to your home. Group size is limited so sign up soon.
Group members will be encouraged to read the book Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortlund. You may take a book at no cost once you sign up. You could also purchase the audio version online.
Small group gatherings will start with a time of fellowship and prayer. Then you will watch a 10 minute video based on the Gentle and Lowly book and then spend time casually discussing it and its relevance to our lives. We would like to see as many people as possible be a part of one of these home groups! We trust they will be a wonderful time of fellowship and spiritual nourishment.
