Connection Groups/Small Groups

An important step in the process of being a follower of Jesus is to be learning and applying God’s Word to every aspect of life. At First Baptist Port Charlotte, we offer Connection Groups and Bible study groups to help you grow as a disciple in a community of fellow believers. Our Connection Groups consist of people in similar stages of life who want to know God’s Word better, while taking the truths of the Bible and applying them to their own lives. They are a place for you to be known to others, while building friendships that can last a lifetime.

Adult Connection Groups are part of a larger philosophy that the family should be growing as Christians together. We encourage families to attend worship at the same time, then go to an age-appropriate study that will impact each member of the family. Connection Groups are offered on Sunday mornings, are on-going, and open to all people. Additionally, we offer off-campus and weekday Bible studies that may better fit your schedule and life situation.

Discipleship Classes

In addition to our Connection Groups, we offer Discipleship classes at various times of the year that cover more focused topics. These classes tend to be 6-12 weeks in length, with lessons that allow you to dig deeper into what the Bible has to say about a particular topic. These classes cover issues like finances, marriage, parenting, grief, and other life impacting issues from a biblical worldview.

GriefShare

It hurts to lose someone. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

Sunday Mornings

In Home Groups

Teachers and Assistant Teachers- As we continue the task of making disciples, we would like to start new groups to help people grow and build relationships. We need teachers and assistant teachers to start these groups. We are looking for people who can help people who have sat through the morning’s sermon go deeper in studying that day’s topic through group discussion and reading Scripture together.

Host Homes and Facilitators- In home Bible studies are a great way to develop friendships with other believers and grow in your faith through Scripture. Through video- based Bible studies, you can host a group in your home and invest in others. If you can open your home to others, press play on a media player, and have a desire to help others grow in Christ, then you may be on your way to leading a group.
