Growth Groups offer a nurturing environment where you can connect with like-minded individuals, strengthen your relationship with God and others, and undergo personal transformation within a supportive community. When you join one of FMBC’s small groups, you will study the Bible, engage in deep discussion, pray, share life’s ups and downs, and support each other. God never intended for us to go through life alone.

FMBC provides a variety of Growth Groups tailored to your preferences. Whether you’re looking to connect with fellow believers in the early stages of their faith journey or delve into specific topics or books of the Bible, we have a group that’s right for you. Regardless of your chosen group, Growth Groups offer a safe place to grow spiritually and navigate life with others. Check out our current Growth Groups and get started today.
