LifeGroups


We believe that as Christ-followers, we are called to be both relational and missional.  First, we are called to pursue a relationship with God, and then with each other.  Out of those relationships, we become mission-minded, looking to spread the gospel to the world around us.  Our desire is that, through LifeGroups, we can go deeper relationally with each other and grow in our personal walks with God.


Just as important as our spiritual development is our relational development as a family.  Through LifeGroups, we can spend some crucial time just being together, encouraging each other in light of the “stuff” we might be going through.


Our current LifeGroup cycle has concluded for the spring/summer.  Information about our groups for the

Fall 2022 cycle will be available in August.


For more information, please email Pastor Shaun (shaun@fgchalifax.ca).


Winter 2022 Groups

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

    (Young Adults ~ 18-30ish)

    Sunday @ 6:00pm


    In the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality study, Peter Scazzero outlines a roadmap for discipleship with Jesus that is powerfully transformative. He unveils what's wrong with our current definition of "spiritual growth" and offers not only a model of spirituality that actually works, but seven steps to change that will help you experience authentic faith and hunger for God.

    Though Peter was an experienced pastor of a growing church, his life and faith remained emotionally unhealthy. Like so many in the church, he routinely: 

    • avoided healthy conflict in the name of keeping the peace
    • ignored and suppressed emotions
    • used work for God as an excuse to run from God
    • lived without limits

    In this study, Peter Scazzero helps you unpack core biblical principles to guide you into an experience of lasting, beneath-the-surface transformation in your relationship with Christ.

  • When God's Spirit Moves

    Sunday @ 6:00pm


    In this six-session small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), pastor and bestselling author Jim Cymbala explores the person and work of the Holy Spirit to bring a fresh sense of God’s power to your church and your life.

    What happens when the Holy Spirit moves powerfully within a church? Through this six-session study you will learn how:

    • To make room for the Spirit’s action in your life and in your church
    • God wants to work through your gifts and talents to enable you to do what only he can do
    • To listen for the voice of the Spirit in prayer and how to apply God’s Word to your life
    • The Spirit can bring healing to your body, your emotions, and your relationships; how a life lived in the presence of the Spirit can transform the church and the world

    Your church can become a place where people regularly experience God’s presence and his power.

  • The Final Word

    Tuesday @ 6:30pm


    Building on a rich Christian heritage and from a trans denominational perspective, Reg Andrews offers a review of the central teachings of the Christian gospel and calls all evangelical believers to an unwavering commitment to those core essentials. His desire is to see a reigniting of Holy Spirit fire across denominational boundaries - a fire that will propel the church towards widespread renewal, bringing many into true discipleship before the second coming of Jesus Christ.

  • Take Back Your Family

    Sunday @ 6:30pm


    The West's multi-century experiment with the nuclear family has failed. Its toxic hyper-individualism has left us with an unprecedented number of broken homes and rampant confusion over what a family is supposed to be. Jefferson Bethke delivers the solution we've been seeking: a plan for taking back our families from the modern myth that has derailed us and a vision for returning to the life-giving, biblical model of multi-generational teams.


    In Take Back Your Family, Bethke uncovers the historic events that led to our obsession with the nuclear family, then exposes the devastating effects of our current "me culture." Now, writing from the visceral perspective of a father with three young children, he shares the values and strategies he and his family lean on in their quest to live as a community bonded by a shared mission, committed to mutually growing and thriving together. By returning to God's original design for families on earth, he says, we can participate in the kingdom work that restores and fulfills our innermost desires for connection, contentment, and meaning.

  • The Reason For God

    Sunday @ 6:00pm


    Christians will be challenged to wrestle with their friends and neighbours’ hardest questions, and to engage those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue. Capture a live and unscripted conversation between Timothy Keller and the six panelists discussing their objections to Christianity. This study will help small groups and individuals dig deeper into the objections of the Christian faith and to learn about both sides of the issues.

    Sessions include:

    • How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
    • What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
    • And more
  • God Is Closer Than You Think

    Sunday @ 6:00pm


    Intimacy with God can happen right now if you want it. A closeness you can feel, a goodness you can taste, a reality you can experience for yourself. That's what the Bible promises, so why settle for less? God is closer than you think, and connecting with him isn't just for monks and ascetics. It's for business people, high school students, busy moms, single men, single women . . . and most important, it's for YOU.


    God Is Closer Than You Think shows how you can enjoy a vibrant, moment-by-moment relationship with your heavenly Father. Bestselling author John Ortberg reveals the face of God waiting to be discovered in the complex mosaic of your life. He shows you God's hand stretching toward you. And, with his gift for storytelling, Ortberg illustrates the ways you can reach toward God and complete the connection--to your joy and His.

  • Jesus > Religion

    Sunday @ 6:00pm


    Abandon dead, dry, rule-keeping and embrace the promise of being truly known and deeply loved. 


    In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. With refreshing candour, Bethke begins with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behaviour, and delves into the motivation behind his message of “why Jesus is so much better than trying harder, doing more and being good enough.”
