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 - Discipleship

Wednesdays, 6:30pm

Room A308, Led by Jennifer Barbee

Ours is a God-centered group where women of all ages come together in a nonjudgmental, safe environment to study God’s Word and pray for each other.  The focus of our next session will be Discipleship, so join us as we study straight from God’s Word, looking at different people and topics. This is an ongoing class and you may join us any time!


Apologetics Class - The Doctrine of the Bible

Wednesdays, 6:30pm

Room B411, Led by Eric Gustafson

How do we know which books should be included in the Bible? What does it mean to say that the Bible is “inerrant”? Join us as we answer these and other questions. This is an ongoing class and you may join us any time.


Come, Let Us Reason

Wednesdays, 6:30pm

Room B208, Led by Steven Noriega

Approaching scripture from the ancient, near-East cultural mindset, we’ll get “in the heads” of some of the ancient Hebrew biblical authors for a better understanding. We will begin in the book of Revelation. This is an ongoing class and you may join us any time.


First Daniel - Then Revelation

Thursdays, 6:30pm

Children's Theater, Led by Wally Gilmer

America’s general ignorance of Biblical prophecy has been starkly revealed since the recent pandemic hit. What does the Bible really say about things like “the mark of the beast?" Could it be the vaccine? We’ll study the Book of Daniel, verse by verse, and then we’ll move to the Book of Revelation where we’ll do the same thing.

When we’re finished, you will understand Biblical prophecy. That’s a promise! Bring your Bible. Class notes will be emailed each week to be printed and brought to class. Please note – this is a Thursday class that is ongoing. You may join us any time.

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!
