Home Groups are the primary way we live life together at First Baptist Church. Our groups take their cues from the early church described in the book of Acts, chapter 2: “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Home groups exist for people to know one another and be known as we follow Jesus together.
Our groups typically meet weekly in homes throughout Shasta County, where we spend time together sharing food, discussing the Scriptures, praying, and looking for opportunities to serve one another and the community. The groups consist of around fifteen people. Our hope is that the relationships that form at group will grow to transcend the once-per-week, two-hour meeting and spill over into the ongoing rhythms of life.
