Following Jesus is about much more than attending a church service. It’s a way of life. At FIF, we’re focused on helping people take steps toward loving God, loving people, and serving the world. It includes serving our community, hanging out with friends who are following Jesus and it means allowing God to transform our lives to look more and more like Jesus.
Attending a Sunday service is just one step in the journey toward following Jesus. As with any journey, there are steps we take to get us where we need to be. At FIF, we recognize every person’s spiritual journey is unique, but we’ve designed a path to give people direction as they grow in their spiritual journey.
For most, a helpful progression is to go from attending a Sunday Gathering to joining a Fellowship Group and then Serving on a Ministry Team.
Sunday Morning Gathering
Our Sunday Gathering (10:30 AM) is a safe place where people can explore faith, but to also teach people the truth they need to know, and to challenge them to apply that truth to their lives.
Sunday Evening Gathering
On Sunday evenings we meet at 5:30 PM until about 6:30 PM. We begin all together in the sanctuary with a contemporary song service. Communion is also served for those who may not have had a chance in the morning. After about a 20 minute worship time, we break into smaller groups for the rest of the hour. Children ages 3 – 5th grade are currently rehearsing for the upcoming Christmas program. It’s not too late to jump in! The youth – 6th through 12th grade – meet for Bible Study. The adults have a class in the sanctuary with our Preaching Minister, Don McKinney.
Following Jesus was never meant to be done alone. It is meant to be done in community. Fellowship groups consist of 8-12 people who commit to doing life together regularly. We eat together, catch up on what’s going on in each other’s lives, and we take the scripture covered in the weekly message and apply it practically to our lives. Fellowship Groups will be our main avenue to service to the community. Check out what we have going on.
