The best way to begin meeting people at First Baptist is by joining a Life Group. A Life Group is a group of 8 to 20 committed people who meet to pursue their relationship with Jesus, connect with each other, and invest in the work of the Gospel. Life Groups not only help you apply what you're hearing in the Sunday messages, but they instantly make a big church feel small.

At First Baptist we are passionate about people connecting with each other within our many Life Groups.  Our many groups each meet once a week throughout the Richmond Hill area, some in homes, some at the church.  We get together, eat, talk, laugh, and discuss life through the lens of what Christ would have for us.  Life Groups encourage sharing our struggles and our successes with one another as we spend quality time together.  Within our groups we encourage each other, support each other, and lifelong deep friendships are made. Life Groups have proven over and over to be the best way to connect with other First Baptist members.

Trying out a Life Group is easy, but we know it can be hard to just show up at a stranger's house.  To help we've created a complete list of our active Life Groups, and we've included a lot of information about each group.  Plus there is this great video to the left where we sent a hidden camera into a LIfe Group.  So check out our Life Groups below, contact a leader, and join us as we do life together!
