Groups at First Wesleyan are designed to help you: Share Christ's love with our city and grow in God's grace through fellowship and discipleship.

Community Groups are ongoing, relational groups designed to help us share life together by connecting, growing and serving at First Wesleyan. Life together is enjoying community and deepening our faith. It is serving each other and our community during celebration and struggle.
