Small Groups

Fairfax Circle isn’t about buildings or sermons or songs. It’s about people.

Our small groups are where people become each other’s community and family. They're there to help pick you up when you’re down and inspire you to grow as a person and grow closer to God. A small group is a weekly gathering of people who meet in a home to study the Bible, pray and share one another’s experiences.

All of our small groups will meet either in-person or online this semester using the Zoom platform.

Our in-person groups will be setting their own COVID protocols for the group.  At this point our groups meeting in homes have adopted a mask optional approach as well asall in person church small groups. Small groups began on April 22, 2022. 

If you have any questions about any of our small group options please email us! 

Be Still

Sermon on the Mount - Matthew 5-7

In-person on Church campus

Sundays at 5:30pm 

Facilitator: Mike Byman

Have you ever wondered where the phrase “salt of the earth” originated?  Or where Jesus taught the “Golden Rule”?  Or where the church learned the Lord’s Prayer?  The Sermon on the Mount is familiar passage, but one from which the Holy Spirit can teach us new things with every reading.  

Join us from 5:30-7 PM on Sunday evenings at the church to share what has been going on in our lives; to pray for each other and for broader concerns in our church, community, and nation; and then to read and discuss verses from Matthew 5-7.  We’ll send out discussion questions in advance for those who want to think about the passage before we meet.

How the Bible Actually Works

In-person: Western Fairfax/Fair Oaks area

Fridays at 7:00pm

Hosts/Facilitators: Marsha and David Magnet

Peter Enns writes “The Bible becomes a confusing mess when we expect it to function as a rulebook for faith. But when we allow the Bible to determine our expectations, we see that Wisdom, not answers, is the Bible’s true subject matter.” How the Bible Actually Works makes clear that there is no one right way to read the Bible. Moving us beyond the idea that “being right” is the most important measure of faith, Enns’s freeing approach to Bible study helps us to instead focus on pursuing enlightenment and building our relationship with God—which is exactly what the Bible was designed to do.

 

Life Lessons from Psalms

Online, Sundays at 7:00pm

Facilitator: Elise Bell

Worship is a daunting task.For that reason, God gave us the Psalms. This collection of hymns and petitions was written over a span of centuries, in many different settings, by kings such as David and Solomon and commoners like Asaph, Heman, and the sons of Korah. Some of the psalms are defiant; others are reverent. Some are meant to be sung; others are to be prayed. Some are intensely personal; others are written as if the whole world is to use them. But all have one purpose – to help us express our hears to God.
