life groups


Life Groups are the heartbeat of true Christian community.

They are about connection doing life together.

"...Encourage each other, and build one another up."  (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

"...Care for one another." (1 Corinthians 12:25)

Group consist of 8-18 adults who meet together regularly in homes or at the church to encourage each other, study God's Word together, and do life together.


When you go to a Life Group you can expect:

  • Community Time: Get to know each other over food and casual conversation.
  • Bible or Book Study: Get to know God and His Word through studying His Word, encouraging each other in our faith journey, and individual ministries.
  • Prayer: Bring our joys and needs to the Lord together, and watch for His provision.


We have a variety of Life Groups to choose from. If you'd like help getting connected, or more information about Groups, call or text Tim Pryor at 740-548-9777, or email us at

    October 28,2018-April 14, 2019

    "For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost."

    Luke is an orderly collection of Jesus' teachings and deeds from His birth to His resurrection, as stated in Luke 1. 1-4. Acts, also written by Luke, is the sequel and is an orderly account of the 'adventures' of the Apostles. Both Luke and Acts are almost like a novel, going from one scene to another, in what may be chronological order.

    Luke 19.10 says, "For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost." For 24 weeks, let's find out about Jesus, who came to seek and save you!

    This study meets in the Fellowship Hall at FaithCov from 9.15-10.15a, during our Discipleship Hour.

  • book of Revelation

    February 3- April 14, 2019

    This is the study of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In Greek the word used is apokalypsos, meaning apocalypse, which we usually think of as referring to the end of the world (The Four Horsemen of the Apocaplypse). But it doesn't mean that. Instead, it means unveiling or revealing; and in this case, revealing the majesty of the Risen, Victorious Jesus Christ, and revealing God's plan for the future.

    From Revelation 1:9 we read the outline of the book, where John is commanded to write:

    What is seen (Revelation 1)

    What is now (Revelation 2-3)

    What will take place later (Revelation 4-22)

    Many Bible prophesies have already been fulfilled; for example, the Advent of Jesus Christ, His birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. But many prophesies of "What will take place later," include His judgement, Second Coming, and Millennium Kingdom--which are yet to be fulfilled.

    "Blessed is he who reads the words of this prophesy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is in it, because the time is near." (Revelation 1:3)

    This study meets in the Prayer Room at FaithCov from 9.15-10.15a during our Discipleship Hour.
