Small Groups are one of the distinctive elements of Fellowship Bible Church. We feel that the large group setting (Sunday morning) is valuable but we are committed to members participating in small group fellowships as well. Like a bird, each size group acts like a wing. In conjunction, the wings keep the bird up and able to move in a desirable direction. Alone, a single wing, if it were able to keep the bird aloft at all, would cause the bird to fly in circles.
Each group has a value to bring to the growth of our members.
Both types of group provide opportunities for development. The large group provides opportunity to eat from a common bowl of the Word of God. Ideally, the small group provides opportunities for each of us to digest, live out, and “do life” together. Small groups provide additional ministry opportunities, one-on-one times, and opportunity for transparency that is nearly impossible in the large group setting.
If you are considering Fellowship Bible Church as a church home, consider joining one of the many small groups as well and take in the whole experience.
