We know that Groups at FBJ are the life of the church. Some prefer a Sunday school class, while others prefer a community group. Whatever your preference is, get plugged in to grow deeper in your faith walk and in community with others. If you are looking for a group to join, text FBJGROUPS to 94000 and we would love to help you connect with one.
