We were created to be relational, to have friends, and belong to something even bigger than ourselves. First Groups was created to provide a place for likeminded people just like yourself to come together and fellowship, support each other and pray together. This is key in walking out your life as a Christian. The Holy Bible teaches us that we can't do this apart from God, but we also need each other. We encourage you to find your place in a First Group and begin to experience life in the way God intended it, with the support and community of your church family. Welcome home.
