What aRE community groupS?

Community Groups are the primary place where you can be known and cared for at FBC. It is within these small communities that men and women can build personal relationships and practice applying the gospel to their lives. Each group expects to experience Jesus Christ in its midst, enabling participants to be transformed through mutual ministry and to experience life in the family of God.

Key Elements of Our Community Groups Include:

  • 5-12 people who gather in one another’s homes
  • meet weekly
  • led by elders and mentored leaders
  • balance worship, Bible study, sharing, prayer, and service
  • offer accountability and instruction; encourage personal evangelism & outreach
  • commit to developing new leaders and groups through apprenticeship

There is a community group available almost every day of the week. There are women’s groups, men’s groups, widow’s fellowship, prayer group and more.

Several Community Groups at FBC Haverhill follow a school-like schedule, with weekly meetings beginning at the annual Rally Day kick-off in the Fall, followed by less frequent meetings or a break over the summer. We generally hold open sign-ups the week before our Fall Community Group Re-Launch.

For the Fall of 2018, FBC Haverhill is committing as a church to 40 Days of Prayer, with gathered prayer meetings held on Wednesday mornings at 7:00AM and Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM. To encourage everyone to participate in our Wednesday Prayer Meetings, we are delaying the 2018 Fall Community Group Relaunch to the week of October 22nd. Sign-ups for community groups will be held on Sunday, October 14th in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the gathered worship service!

It's never too late to join a Community Group! For more information about any of our Community Group opportunities, please contact the church office.
