Being in relationship is an essential part of being a Christian.
God is a relational God and he wants us to have consistent and meaningful interactions within our community of faith.
Our small groups are vital to carrying out this goal and other aspects of the Fullness vision.
In small groups, people meet several times a month to talk about how God is at work in their lives.
These meetings find practical ways to apply the truths of God and the work of the Spirit to our everyday experiences.
We encourage every member of Fullness – from youth on up- to connect with a group!
Groups welcome new members at any time.
We are called to ENCOUNTER God and His People, EXPERIENCE the Power of the Holy Spirit and help you to Discover Your Purpose and to EXPAND Our Influence by Making a Difference.
Here are the current small groups that are meeting regularly:

Young Adult Group
We are a community of young adults who enjoy laughing and spending time together. Some of us are in college and some are working but we are all seeking to know Jesus more and live as committed followers of Him in our secular society. Typically we eat snacks and go through books together (there’s never assigned reading outside of our gatherings!). Sometimes we’ll worship together, pray for each other, or just gather to play games or watch a movie together. If you’re a young adult who is interested in any of these things, we’d love to have you join us!
