Small Groups

For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.  Matthew 18:20

You are always invited to grow in deeper relationship to God, to one another and to yourself. First Church's small groups offer opportunities to do just that. Through small groups, we can listen to each other's hearts and lives, share our stories and care for one another, and speak honestly about our faith and our doubts. Check out our current listing of small groups below and please don't be shy about reaching out to the contacts listed. These are great ways to get connected, make new friends and grow in faith. Feel free to email or call the church office or one of our ministers with any questions, concerns or ideas for new small groups.
