Life Groups and Discipleship

The best way to meet others, grow spiritually, and experience the best of FBCIT is to attend a Life Group. Our Life Groups meet every week for Bible Study, fellowship, and prayer. No matter your age and whether you are single, engaged, or married, we have a Life Group for you! We call them "Life Groups" because we do life together! In a Life Group you can study God's Word, make friends, and live out faith in an authentic way. Life Groups make it easier for you to find people you connect with, people who share your interests, who can relate to your struggles and who share in your accomplishments; people you can call family. We know that when you get together with people and have fun, you'll begin to grow into a strong community that serves and grows together.

Life Group Classes

Each group has its own personality. We encourage you to visit several before you join one. All groups are encouraged to have a weekly Bible study, monthly fellowship, quarterly mission project in the community, and to show intentional care to its ministry all year.

Once you connect with a Life Group, not only could your spiritual life take off to new heights, but you may begin looking for ways to serve others through ministry projects. You will then seek out others who need what you have experienced and invite them.  This comes full circle by loving and leading everyone you meet into an everyday walk with Christ.

On your first Sunday, stop by the Welcome Center and speak with one of our helpful greeters. They will gladly identify a Life Group for you and personally accompany you to the room.

Discipleship Classes


Wednesdays | 6:30pm

Room B411 | Led by Eric Gustafson & Allan DiDonato

Apologetics can be described as loving others by giving thoughtful answers to their honest questions. Come, learn how to defend your faith with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15).


Come, Let Us Reason

Wednesdays | 6:30pm

Room B208 | Led by Steve Noriega

We approach scripture from the ancient, near-East cultural mindset for a better biblical understanding. Join us as we continue our typical verse-by-verse analysis of the Bible. Books studied vary throughout the year, but we’ll begin in Ezekiel. Questions are always welcome, and we most often address those before diving into the planned study subject. So come, let us reason together.


Romans: Cathedral of the Christian Faith

Tuesdays | 6:30pm

Sossamon Chapel | Led by Wally Gilmer

A clear verse-by-verse study of the Book of Romans. British philosopher, poet, and theologian Samuel Coleridge once wrote, “The Book of Romans is the most profound work in existence in the entire world.” Bring your Bible: We’ll be in the Book of Romans (weekly notes will be emailed).

G2 Mentoring Ministry Coffee Connection

Sunday, August 22, 2pm

Sossamon Chapel

Are you new to FBCIT and looking for a way to meet new people and get connected? Or have you been a member and are looking for a way to get involved in a Bible study or have more accountability in your spiritual growth?

Getting involved in G2 could be just what you are looking for! G2, which stands for "Generation to Generation," is a women's multi-generational ministry that centers around Bible study. Women are paired, one-on-one, for a 14-week session of Bible study, praying together and investing in one another's lives. It's a great way to pour over the Scriptures, pour into each other's lives and strengthen your walk with Jesus.

It all starts by coming to our Coffee Connection, which is a great time of fellowship and provides you with all the details about G2. Join us on August 22 and check out how you can be involved in this dynamic ministry! It might be just what you need in your journey with Christ!
