Life is not meant to be lived alone. We, as humans, need to have that friend to laugh with, to ask for advice, to be that shoulder to cry on. We need Small Groups. Whether here at church, at someone’s home, or in the local coffee shop, Small Groups at FBMaryville are essential to your spiritual growth & development. Groups come in all shapes and sizes, so no matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Check out the Small Groups we have to offer below and see how you and your family can get connected.
