Fellowship Groups

 A Fellowship Group is a formal group of PBC members who commit to meet together regularly to cultivate gospel community with one another (Acts 2:42-47). We believe that being a part of a church consists of more than weekly attendance at corporate worship. The church is a family that lives life together by caring for one another, bearing one another’s burdens, and helping each other grow in conformity to Christ.

 

In order to achieve this, we’ll deliberately work to create a culture in our Fellowship Groups that prioritizes fellowship. Over the course of a three-month commitment, groups will meet weekly to fellowship together. Since we want the relationships with Fellowship Group members to be deeper than just the superficial things that usually unite our relationships, every group will spend a portion of their time in prayer and sermon discussion from the previous week’s sermon. Since we often grow closest to one another when we’re serving alongside one another, each group will schedule one service project every semester. Since we often grow close when we share fun experiences together, each group will schedule one “party” each semester.

 It is a group of PBC members who commit to meet once a week and are intended to cultivate biblical fellowship with one another. We find the teaching to gather in this manner in the following scripture…

(Acts 2:42-47) “And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers...”  

Fellowship groups are NOT accountability groups, nor are they Bible or book study groups.

Fellowship Groups are designed to foster deeper, personal relationships with a diverse group of PBC members. Each week we will spend some time talking about the previous week's sermon and spend time in prayer for one another. The main goal is to develop a culture where there is an opportunity for members to know and grow together.

Each fellowship group will meet for roughly 3 months and then there will be a one month break. Once fellowship groups start back up, different members will make up new groups. Over the course of a year, we will spend time getting know and grow with different church family members in ways not available in our corporate gatherings.

Above is our registration area. We have multiple groups meeting throughout the week. These groups are designed to be family friendly. We prefer husbands and wives to meet with the same group. We have some groups that are kid-friendly so be sure to list the names and ages of your children that will be joining you.
