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

From Ashes to Beauty - Miracles of Jesus

Wednesdays, 6:30pm, September 15 – December 22

Room A308, Led by Jennifer Barbee

A God-centered group where women of all ages come together in a nonjudgmental, safe environment to study God’s Word and pray for one another. We will explore all four Gospels with teaching from Jennie Allen, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, Jada Edwards, and Sadie Robertson. This study is about believing in the power of God, who can accomplish anything. Cost of book is $10.


Apologetics Class - People Have Questions

Wednesdays, 6:30pm, September 15 – December 8

Room B411, Led by Eric Gustafson

All of us have friends and family members who do not yet know the Lord but are seeking and asking questions. This class is about loving them enough to answer their honest questions such as, "If God is good, why does He allow evil and suffering?" "How can I know that the Bible is true?" and "Doesn't Christianity teach intolerance?" Join us as we tackle these questions and more. The book : I Don't Have Enough Faith toBe an Atheist by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek should be purchased before the class begins.


What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage

Sundays, 9:30am, September 26 – November 28

Building G-Room 101, Led by John Sprinkle

Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle. Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and most importantly, you need grace. There is no cost for this class.

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!
