Lifelines small groups are an integral part of the mission of our church: Connect – Build – Reach. “Build” accurately reflects what our small groups are all about.
First, we intend to build community. At Farmington Heights, we build community through our small groups. It is during our time spent with others engaging in life and sharing experiences that we foster this sense of community. Next, we strive to build disciples. We believe that spiritual growth happens best in the fertile soil of the Word mixed with meaningful personal relationships. In other words, when we build community we are better able to build disciples.
Lifelines small groups help us accomplish these goals through several areas of emphasis: providing an opportunity for individuals to fellowship and connect with others; helping people to focus on disciplines important to their spiritual journey; and fostering development of people’s talents, gifts and abilities. Group participation is open to everyone – whether you attend Farmington Heights Church or not – and is the most effective way to get connected and plugged in to our church & experience community.
Our small groups follow a semester format, meeting for regular meetings during a four-month period. The frequency of group meetings vary from group to group (some meet weekly, some every other week). Each semester is preceded by a one-month period designated as “Signup Month” during which you may join a group for the upcoming semester. Our yearly schedule is as follows:
January – Signup month
February through May – groups meet
July – Signup month
August through November – groups meet
Groups meet on various days/times throughout the week to accommodate peoples’ schedules. We offer curriculum-based groups, activity-based groups and fellowship-based groups. Individuals are free to choose a group based on what best meets their needs.
