What Are Small Groups & Fellowship Groups?

Fairview Missionary Church has two terms to describe its small gatherings ministries:  Small Groups and Fellowship Groups.

Small Groups meet at least bi-weekly and have some type of Bible study / Christian living material as the emphasis. They can either meet at the church or in a home. For example: Sunday school class or Wednesday night class.

Fellowship Groups have fellowship and relationship as the main emphasis. The goals of these groups are to meet people, make friends, and get to know others better. These groups usually have a small devotion time, but it is not the emphasis of the group. These groups can either meet at the church or in the home. For example: Fellowship flocks, Widow’s group, etc.
