Growth Groups are the "heart" of fellowship at FOLF.
Growth Groups typically contain 4-7 individuals and are led by a facilitator who maintains communication with the group and keeps meetings moving. Many groups are single-gender but several are co-ed. The groups meet weekly at a time chosen by the facilitator. Meetings typically last for 60-90 minutes and always include time in Scripture and prayer. Typically, growth groups run in "sessions" of 10-12 weeks of commitment after which there is a natural shuffling of groups accoridng to schedule and interest, although some groups choose to run continually.
- Flexibility - Groups choose to meet at a wide variety of times and locations. If you want to join, there will be a time that can work for your schedule!
- Friendship - Growth groups truly offer the best way to get to know and support one another within the church.
- Growth - Each Sunday we hear a sermon text preached. Growth groups allow continued study, shared insights, and application time for the SAME weekly text, helping the Word to take deeper root in our minds and hearts for real growth.
