Jesus didn’t mentor individuals, he discipled people in groups. Small groups exist as a way for believers to engage in biblical community so that we can become more like Jesus in every area of our lives.
At VFC, we call our small groups FaceTime Groups because in this world of busyness and isolation, we all need to get some “face time” with other believers. No iPhone needed! We meet at houses around the area on Wednesday nights.
Ignite Student Ministries, Children’s Church and the Nursery also meet Wednesdays at VFC from 6:30—8:30 p.m. Drop your kids off at church at 6:30 and head to your FaceTime group. Sign-up sheets for FaceTime groups are available in the foyer at the church so we can know to expect you. FaceTime groups will be dismissed in time for parents to get their children by 8:30.
When we look at the early church we get a picture of small communities of people who followed Jesus together. The Book of Acts, especially Acts 2:42-47, gives us a great picture of the early church and the components of biblical community, which encompassed both the “temple courts” and “house to house.”
These believers engaged in life together through teaching, fellowship, communion, prayer, miracles, radical generosity, and corporate worship. They spent time together eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Good News, and supporting each other. God never intended for us to live the Christian life alone.
Please consider becoming a part of an existing VFC FaceTime group.
