Live the Way of Jesus.

Our journey with Christ is more than just a gathering on Sundays — it is a lifelong pursuit that gets nurtured and lived out in a Christ-centered community. We all need a community where we are known, loved, cared for, pursued, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Christ. We believe building that kind of community requires each one of us embrace five group values:

Wherever you are in your relationship with God, no matter what you have done, what you are going through, or how much you know about the Bible, we invite you to join us as we seek to live the way of Jesus together. Check out our various group types below!

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community Groups gather weekly for dinner, bible study and prayer. Whether you’re new to faith or a mature follower of Jesus, groups are designed to meet you where you are.

Community Groups use a method that helps everyone learn to study and apply the bible for themselves. Groups also strive to be an environment where you can invite others to come and see Jesus for themselves.

Group Types: Women, Men, Young Adults, Married Couples, Parents, Intergenerational

Group Size: 10-16 people

Open or Closed: Always open; new groups multiply when groups grow too large.

Frequency: weekly

Study Material: One book of the Bible at a time, using the communal discovery method.

Demographics: Everyone!

HUDDLES

Huddles are single-gender groups that walk through more intensive discipleship material and require a higher commitment.

Huddle groups complete required material before each meeting, and members are expected to mutually participate in leading and facilitating the group. Huddles and Community Groups offer completely different group experiences. We would recommend doing a Huddle every other week if you also plan to participate in a community group.

Study Materials: We recommend either Emotionally Health Discipleship, which has two 8-week sessions, or Spiritual Disciplines, based on John Mark Comer’s content.

Group Size: 3-5 people

Open or Closed: Huddles are closed once formed.

Frequency: Twice per month or weekly.

Demographics: Participants who’ve been part of Fairfax for at least six months and can commit to the requirements. Huddles require prior involvement in a Fairfax Group.
