We live our Christian life alongside each other, not in isolation. Small groups provide a setting to develop deeper relationships with each other that normally wouldn't form by solely attending Sunday services. Usually a small group will consist of 6-12 members and may include children. Once the groups get larger than this number, members are encouraged to divide and form new groups. Each group is uniquely different - participating in an array of activities and meeting throughout the Richmond area! Many small groups also plan and participate in church or independently planned community service projects.
Think you might be interested in a small group? Check out the options we have to offer! Contact Pastor Ryan for further information on joining.

Central Richmond Small Group
This is FMC's newest group! The Central Richmond Small Group meets every 3 weeks, usually on Thursdays, either hosted at it's members homes or occasionally at other locations. The theme of each meeting changes as each host picks a new topic and activity. The CRSG is made up of members from various age ranges and religious beliefs. This group is open to anyone who loves discussion, food, wishes to have fun, and wants to get to know their fellow church members!
