Community Groups

We grow best—relationally and spiritually—when we are in community. At First Pres, Community Groups provide that space for connection and growth. Communities of six to twelve adults gather on various days and times during the week in the home of a group member or on the First Pres campus. We come together to dwell in God’s story, share our own stories, and explore and strengthen our connections.

Lent 2018 | The Forgiven Life

Community Groups

Community Group Gatherings

Dates: Weeks of February 18–March 25, various days, times, and locations

This Lent you are invited to join other adults from your neighborhood or life stage to experience the blessings of community as we explore what the forgiven life is…and what it is not.

Each week we discuss the stories of the Bible, listen, pray together, and invite God’s Spirit to form us as a forgiven people with abilities to forgive, grow, and bear witness to this gospel message in an unforgiving time.
