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.


Small groups are currently in session.

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

Ladies Bible Study

On campus

Wednesdays at 12:15 – 2:00pm (Bring your own lunch)

Facilitator: Jaimie Lindley

The group will be reading and discussing the book Help is Here: Finding Fresh Strength and Purpose in the Power of the Holy Spirit by Max Lucado.  

Help Is Here reminds us that our Good Shepherd doesn't just feed us; he leads us. He does more than correct us; he directs us. No more walking the path alone. No more carrying weight you were not intended to bear. It's time for you to enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit and experience the vigorous life he offers. You can rest easy knowing that Help Is Here.


Taste and See

Western Fairfax/Fair Oaks area


Fridays at 7:00pm

Hosts/Facilitators: Marsha and David Magnet

The author, Margaret Feinberg, writes that God, the Master Chef, seeds the world with pomegranates and passionfruit, beans and greens and tangerines. This study provides a culinary exploration of Scripture. You'll descend 400 feet below ground into the frosty white caverns of a salt mine, fish on the Sea of Galilee, bake fresh matzo at Yale University, ferry to a remote island in Croatia to harvest olives, spend time with a Texas butcher known as "the meat apostle," and wander a California farm with one of the world's premier fig farmers.

With each visit, Margaret asks, "How do you read these Scriptures, not as theologians, but in light of what you do every day?" Their answers will forever change the way you read the Bible--and approach every meal.  As this group discusses the significance of food in the Bible we will be eating on-theme refreshments to experience what we're discussing.


A Study in Luke

Fairfax/Falls Church area

Wednesdays at 7:00pm

Host/Facilitators: Ky and David Wigginton

This small group is simple. We want to know what the Bible says without imposing any specific agenda or trying to find a theme. In a world where there are countless viewpoints of what scripture says, we will read for ourselves, in community, through the book of Luke with an inductive Bible study method.

In joining the small group this semester, you will be:

  • Reading scripture in community and having open and honest conversation about the Bible.
  • Gaining deep insight into what the Bible is saying and how it pertains to everyday life.
  • Doing life in community where we can share in all of our highs and lows.

Blue Babies Pink

Location: Fairfax City

Fridays at 7:00pm

Facilitator: Melissa Bowhay
Hosts: Bobby and Anna Ritter


This group will be discussing the podcast Blue Babies Pink, B.T. Harman's auto-biographical journey of being a gay Christian in the American south. Each week, we'll listen to a few episodes on our own (they are very short) and discuss during small group. 


Just The Facts According to Luke


Sundays at 7:00pm

Host/Facilitators: Elise Bell 

As we prepare for Easter this group will be studying the Gospel of Luke.  We will use more than one source for this study, but the mail source will be Life Lessons from Luke, by Max Lucado.  The goal is to do a deep study about Jesus as we prepare for Easter as we look at what his Disciple Luke learned walking beside him.  

Nearly 2,000 years ago, a doctor named Luke wrote a letter in which he prioritized two things: a love for Christ and a love for the facts. He didn't want legends; he wanted truth. And so, Dr. Luke began to sort the truth and report the facts. The result is part letter, part research paper.
