Small Groups

Pastor Gary

smal groupsThe small group ministry has been around since Jesus walked this earth, but has only recently become the leading edge of church growth again in the last twenty years or so. ANY church that is growing today can attribute most of that growth to the ministry of small groups. In our fellowship we have several small groups functioning on a weekly basis. We have discovered the intimacy, spiritual dynamic, and support found in small groups to be very appealing. Join one of our small Groups and experience the joy of belonging and acceptance.

nothing is wastedWant to start a small group or lead a small group?  Please see Pastor Gary for information.  We will start a new book, "Nothing Is Wasted" by Joseph Bentz. Please join us and participate in a group that is convenient for you. If a day time group would be better for your schedule, we have a group that meets at the church on Thursdays at 10:00 AM.

We are excited about this addition to our worship center and encourage you to continue being faithful to the future of Gainesville First through your donations to the Building Fund. More information will be coming soon.

The pastor presented initial renderings of the new facility.  We are really excited to see this project get started. Our ministry  to the community will be enhanced by this addition.
