small groups & Sunday classes

grow in your relationship with other followers of Jesus

you're not supposed to go it alone

God doesn't want us to “do life” alone - it's so much better together! Small groups and Sunday classes study the Bible, but also provide opportunities to connect and build relationships with others as we explore faith and life’s ups and downs together in a meaningful way.  

What do small groups look like?

Throughout the year Faith Church hosts a variety of small groups designed for all ages and walks of life. These groups meet in the church or in homes throughout the week. Our groups are come-as-you are, casual settings.

The material used is prepared by each group leader and is typically based off of a book and/or video series. Each study offers time for friendship, prayer and encouragement.

Is a small group right for me?

Yes! At Faith Church we encourage everyone to get connected in this way. Small Groups are vital to our vision to connect you to God and others, to prepare you to serve Christ and our community and to encourage you to grow deeper in your faith. There is no need for previous small group experience or extensive knowledge of the Bible.

How can I get connected?

To get connected to a Small Group or Bible Study, visit the Connection Table Sunday mornings, contact the group leader of a group you're interested in, or click here to sign up.

What if I have more questions? Contact Pastor David at david.carter@bellefontefaith.com or 814.355.3358.

groups available as of April 2021

SPECIAL NOTE FOR SPRING: As we shift back to in-person meetings, some groups may still be meeting online, or others may have shifted from in-person to meeting online instead. Others may not meet again until some time in the future.

Especially during this pandemic, it's always a good idea to reach out before attending a small group or Sunday class to confirm the time, location and manner of meeting.

For questions, contact Pastor David Carter at 814.355.3358 or david.carter@bellefontefaith.com.
