Church is a place for connection but sometimes it is hard to see. Do you want to learn and discover more about the presence of Jesus in your life, but you wonder how? Do you want to find community and have honest conversation about the intersection of where faith and life come together? Do you want to be part of something that gives life, but don’t know where to begin? Are you hungry and thirsty for something, but you just don’t know what for?
A life group is an intentional group that consists of 6-8 people who meet together on a regular basis to explore a deeper relationship with Jesus, to nurture and care for one another, and to follow Jesus in daily life. Life groups will meet at various times and in different locations throughout the F-M community. Each life group will focus on three different areas:

• Sharing with others the joy, struggle, and triumphs of daily life. Sharing how God is active-
lifting each other up in prayer. In other words, doing the Christian life together!
• Studying scripture or a particular book together. Listening for and encountering God in great
conversation. Learning and growing!
• Serving one another and the wider community. Life groups will be encouraged to
participate in service projects throughout the year.
