Life is better together.

We want to help you live a better story and that happens best in relationship with God and with others. That’s why everyone who calls Fairfax Community Church home has the opportunity to participate in a small group. In a small group, 8–12 people gather regularly – to have a meaningful conversation about what matters most in life. Small groups offer a safe place for you to connect with others and explore or deepen a relationship with Jesus.

So, if you want to grow in knowledge, want a place to belong or you want to better integrate your faith and work, we have a group for you.

Bring your questions, doubts and curiosity about God and the Bible.  When you join a study group you are participating in a conversation around a topic, theme or book of the Bible.  If you want to know more about God, a study group is for you.

Table groups meet weekly in homes to share a meal and answer the “how was your day” and “what is going on next week” questions.  In a table group there is no formal study – life is the curriculum of your time together.

Blue groups explore the unique challenges of following Christ and pursuing excellence in the workplace. Groups are primarily composed of people in the same industry, promoting understanding and support of one’s particular work environment.

I’m new to the area, what is the best group for me?

Each small group develops a plan to care for the children in the group.  We have some best practices around childcare that we offer to leaders.
