Small Groups at Friends Church
Small Groups are an important way to connect with and support one another. It's hard to get to really know people by only attending Sunday worship, and it can be difficult as a newcomer to build relationships. Small groups offer a more intimate setting in which to nurture relationships, explore your faith, and find community and support in both joyful and difficult times. You're invited to get connected to a small group today!
Sign up for 2021 groups is now available here.
Life is not meant to be lived alone. You were created to experience life with other people, which is why we encourage you to get into a small group.
A Soul Friends group is a group of six or more people who gather twice month in a home, workplace, or online. In a group you’ll hang out, explore questions of life and faith, and nurture your spirituality together.
Groups come in all shapes and sizes. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ready to dive in?
Fabulous at Any Age (FAA)
FAA was formed in 2013 and offers monthly excursions to explore our area, learn about other cultures and religions, and assist with mission projects from the congregation. The group meets for lunch and a group activity, excursion, tour, lecture, or fellowship.
Parents of Teens (POT)
POT Parties are a chance to connect with other families with teenagers. Your teens don’t have to be living with you or even living at home anymore; all are welcome. Teens and other children are welcome to attend.
Families with Young Children
Families with Young Children provides support and fellowship for those who are parenting children while offering a fun environment for the children.
Our Youth Group, for 6th through 12th grade, meets most Sundays from 5:30 to 7:00 in the double classroom. We have dinner together and then share in activities to learn more about and support one another, our congregation, and our community. We explore topics such as open and affirming, racial justice, access for all, and caring for our planet. We develop relationships, have fun, and learn about our walk with Christ together through this fruitful ministry.
