Community Groups at First.
Why Community Groups? What’s the Big Deal?
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. -Acts 2:46-47a (NIV)
In Acts 2:42-47, we see the believers joining together to grow in their faith and to live out the mission Jesus left for them. Community groups are the place for us to do the same — where we experience authentic community and learn to grow as disciples of Jesus.
Community groups meet on campus at First Baptist Tulsa on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am. We have groups for people of every age and season of life (including youth and college). But they all have something in common. In every community group, we encounter God and intentionally invest in each other’s lives as we are developed into Jesus followers who impact our families, neighbors, city, and the world with the gospel.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each of our community groups is leader-facilitated, but everyone is invited and encouraged to participate. Although every group has its own style and flow, you can expect each week to start with a time of fellowship followed by a biblically-based teaching and discussion about how we can relate the Bible to our daily lives. Our hope and prayer is that you will find meaningful friendships with people who are willing to walk with you through all of life’s joys and challenges and find fresh ways to connect with God.
In the links below, you will find descriptions for each community group that will meet in this next season. Feel free to check out one or more groups until you find a good fit for you and your family. For more information email me, Dave McPherson, or call my office at (918) 594-5029.
