GROUPS and LIFE GROUPS

At First Church, one of our Focus Values is community.

A Life Group is one of the ways that we can focus and grow together as a community.


A First Church Life Group is a small community of roughly twelve people who meet regularly for an informal time of fellowship and learning. They encourage one another in spiritual growth through study, discussion, and sharing together God's Word. Prayer, mutual concern, and acceptance are also key components.


There are many different groups, meeting in different locations; surely there is a place for you!
Other ministry departments also offer groups formed around special interests: men's, women’s, couples, singles, 
mothers of preschoolers, youth, or those suffering from addictions.


If you are interested in becoming a part of a Life Group, OR interested in starting a new group,

please contact Pastor Wayne at waynel@firstchurch.org, or 860 529 1575 ext.203.
