Adult small groups are great ways to connect with friends, and to grow as disciples. We believe all people are called to be in ministry to our families, friends, local community, work, and world. Small groups help us do that through discipleship. This process includes Biblical study, spiritual growth, prayer, and fellowship with one another.  


Adult ministries at First Rowlett are designed to bring individuals and couples together into small groups where you can connect with each other, build relationships, and grow in faith. Our Life Group environments are designed to help you connect with others in similar seasons of life and interests. Through this people form close-knit communities to navigate the ups and downs of life seasons together while sharing in ministry together. Through classes and small group programs, our primary goal is to make adult ministries at our church a place where anyone in our congregation can grow closer to Christ and community. By meeting together, sharing meals, walking through curriculum, studying the Word, and simply doing life with another the adults in our congregation have a safe place live fuller lives in Christ.


If you are looking for a way to get plugged in we invite you to join one of our many Life Groups or Study Groups and experience the blessings of growing in faith with one another.

Descriptions of the various Life Groups may be found HERE.
