SMALL GROUPS, JANUARY 2023


We are so excited that you are here to learn more about the small groups that are offered at First Church! Here are some things you might like to know:


  • Small groups are available throughout the week, with a larger emphasis on Wednesday evening which we call FC Gathering. FC Gathering is a time of getting together and getting to know one another. We start with a small meal at 5:30 and then transition to groups at 6:15, finishing the evening at 7:30. This evening is for the whole family. Fusion, Children's Ministry and nursery (up through 4 years-old) will also be gathering. The gathering will take place at 5:30 pm, Downtown Campus, each week.
  • All of the groups listed below are open to new participants.
