Groups

What is a Group?

At Fountain Springs we want each person to be connected and know that they belong here. Beyond attending our weekend series, Groups are a great way to meet new people in your area or stage of life and grow and share life together.

Groups are small groups of people (usually 6-12) who meet together regularly to encourage, support and challenge one another. Come find out why we say ‘Life is Better Together!!’

(Our Groups follow the school year calendar - Fall Groups begin in September and Spring Groups begin in February)

When: Wednesday, Evening

leader photo(Meets bi-weekly)

Grief comes in many forms and through many different types of loss in our lives. But we can find healing and comfort in community with others who can relate to our grief.

In Through the Eyes of a Lion, we will focus on the eye-opening truth of the power of hope in a world that is often filled with pain, suffering, and loss. "This book isn't a manual for grieving, but a manifesto for high-octane living, and through it I want you to see that God made you for a purpose."

Meets at the home of leader Tabatha Murphy bi-weekly @ 6:00pm

Leadership does not come from your title. In fact, being named to a position is only the first and lowest of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than a boss people are required to follow, you must master the ability to inspire and build a team that produces not only results, but also future leaders.

WOMEN - Made to Crave (Fragale)

When: Sunday, Afternoon

leader photo

The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn\'t a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the "I\'ll start again Monday" cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn\'t a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory.

Meets at Starbucks Alex Johnson with leader Megan Fragale @ 1:30pm.

Books are available for purchase from Amazon for $10.50

WOMEN - Uninvited (Pearcy)

When: Monday, Evening

leader photo

The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ\'s powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection—from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

Meets at the Women and Children's Home with leader Rhonda Pearcy. Those who are available to cook will meet at 4:30. We will serve dinner at 5:00-5:30, then start our study 5:45-7:30.

Books available for purchase from Amazon for $10.00
