By persuading the town to organize into smaller, private religious meetings, Edwards resuscitated one of the basic components of the Puritan movement . . . in the social meetings, neighbors prayed, studied together, taught and exhorted each other, and built each other up spiritually." — George Marsden, on Jonathan Edwards’ effort to form small groups

The main goal for small groups at First Baptist Church is to build greater fellowship among the members of FBC in the context of sharing, prayer, mutual accountability, and fellowship.

Small groups promote relationships in which First Baptist Church lives out the “one another” commands of the New Testament. They meet during our afternoon service after the sermon discussion and Q&A. We have found that these groups are an excellent way for you to grow meaningful relationships.

Small groups break up into men only and women only. While small groups are mainly aimed at members, they are open to all (members and guests).
