We all need community.
Life Groups are small gatherings of adults who regularly gather to live life together, and learn about God. Members of Life Groups experience spiritual growth and meaningful community. This is where we work through the challenges of daily life, and offer love and support to one another. Life Groups give us the opportunity to form intentional relationships with others in the body of Christ, and to grow spiritually through community. After all, we’re not meant to go through life alone!
There are a variety of Life Groups at Fair Oaks: some groups are ongoing throughout the year, typically meeting on a weekly schedule; other groups form for a specific season, typically meeting weekly for a 6- to 8-week period. Whether you are single, married with children, married without children, or an empty-nester, there is a Life Group for you. We encourage you to get connected!
Summer Life Groups start the week of June 4th.
If you're looking to get connected, desiring to join a new group, or feel led to start a group, our Summer Life Groups are your opportunity. These groups will meet for six weeks, from the week of June 4th through the week of July 9th.
