small Groups

Here at First Baptist Church of Inverness we strive to meet the spiritual needs of every family member. We have Small Groups to fit every age group and every stage in life.

Our teachers believe in sharing God’s Word and offer life applications from a Bible based curriculum.

We firmly believe that the strength and growth of our church depends on our small group settings.

Here is where you will make lasting friendships. Here is where we have the opportunity to minister to one another. This is the area that we get to form new relationships and share the prayer needs of the members in our classes.

There is also the added opportunity for small group fellowships. Many of our groups hold Christmas Parties, a Summer BBQ, or maybe just go to lunch together at the end of class.

We hope you will find a class to become a part of and be blessed by the opportunities a small group setting has to offer.

Life Group Info

What would it look like to learn about Jesus, live generously with others, and serve your community?
Life groups are core to FBC Inverness’ belief in discipleship and connections.  In Acts 2, we read how the early church met together not just in the temple, but also from house to house. As we grow in size, Life Groups are a way for a large church to feel small. In Life Group you won’t just meet people; rather, you will grow deep friendships with people who will love and challenge you as you journey together to become more like Jesus.
               
We believe in the power of God’s Word to transform us, and we believe the greatest transformation occurs in the context of community as we support, pray for, and provide accountability for each other as we journey together towards becoming like Christ. The studies our groups do are centered in the Word and are all aimed at helping us understand how the Gospel of Jesus changes everything about our lives.
       
Who meets in Life groups?
Our philosophy at FBC Inverness is this: If you are breathing, you need to be in a Life Group! Everyone from our preschoolers to our oldest adults meets in Life group. Why?… Because, we were made to grow in our faith TOGETHER.  Life groups often naturally form with people who have common connections such as age and/or stage of life. Couples, men, women, mixed, & college…We have a group for everyone!

When do Life groups meet?
Life groups meet at various times and days throughout the week (see Group Schedule)..

Where do Life groups meet?
Our adult Life groups meet in host homes throughout Inverness and the surrounding area. As we have grown, we have had to be creative with space, so our adult groups meet off campus. We realized that even though we have quickly run out of space on campus, God has provided us with an unlimited resource of living rooms!

Who leads Life groups?
Life groups are led by members of FBC Inverness who are simply passionate to see people discover the truth of His Word, and connect with others. They are people just like you who are continuing to discover the depths and riches of the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

How do I get connected in a Life group?
You can get plugged into a Life Group throughout the semester by contacting Pastor John at: john@fbcinverness.com, or by contacting any Life Group Leader.
