If you want to get connected with a smaller group of people at FCA and create meaningful relationships that can last through your time at Clemson; small groups are the way to go. Our goal is for small groups as a whole to have one main focus: making disciples. Our vision for Clemson FCA Small Groups is to multiply the glory of God on Clemson’s campus and within the Clemson community by creating groups that encourage people to see more of God’s character and be in constant pursuit of Him daily. Small groups serve as a way to find encouragement, love, and accountability.
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Some Things You Should Know
Small Groups are gender-specific.
You don’t have to be a Christian to join one! We believe that true, lasting community is found only through like-mindedness around Jesus Christ and his saving work. With that being said, we would love for non-believers to experience the joy of fellowship that God has graciously given us and would be thrilled by someone who is not a believer joining these groups!
Every small group has 2 leaders who are passionate about serving and encouraging.
Leaders will challenge you to shatter complacency and grow. They will accomplish this through many ways, but operate on a foundation of fostering a community that is focused on encouragement, fellowship, the teaching of God’s word, and an emphasis on pointing people to the network of local churches in Clemson.
