Joining a Small Group (Sunday School) can be one of the best decisions you will ever make while you are here at Francis. As the name implies, it is where a small group of people gather together to study the Bible, pray for one another, and encourage one another. Our view here is that as we grow larger (worship service), we must also grow smaller (small groups). We invite you to attend one of our morning worship services (8:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.), but we also encourage you to join one of our small groups which begin at 9:45 a.m.
If you are interested in joining one of our small groups, but need help locating it, a person from our information desk will be happy to assist you. If you would like more information on a class, please contact the church office. We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
