Flocks meet most Sundays and typically take breaks over summer and the holidays. For details, see the church calendar. For questions, directions, or other details, feel free to contact us.
Flocks meet most Sunday afternoons after the Lord’s Day service at members’ homes on most Sundays (see the church calendar for dates and details). They’re one of the cornerstones of body life at Firm Foundation and offer a unique opportunity for fellowship around God’s Word and a nice meal in a casual environment in the homes of our members.
Children are able play together nearby in an open, highly-visible area, with some of our older youth able to help keep an eye on the little ones. Hosts usually have quiet rooms available for little ones who need to nap.
The Benefits of Flocks
In Acts 6:1-7, we clearly see that the chief priority of pastoral leadership (that is, the elders) in the New Testament local church is prayer and the public ministry of God’s Word. In that same passage, however, we also see that one of the responsibilities of pastoral leadership is to facilitate ministry within the local church—to create the framework that allows ministry to take place.
One of the primary ways we do that at Firm Foundation is not through gimmicks or programs, but through Flocks.
Flocks are great for several reasons:
First, they’re at a convenient time and are over early enough to allow you to be home for a long, relaxing end to your weekend.
Second, they provide a truly unique opportunity for fellowship and building biblical relationships with other believers.
Third—and most importantly—Flocks help strengthen the work of God in our hearts and lives by reinforcing the Word preached and making the most of our pastors’ ministries.
We’re very excited about Flocks and definitely encourage everyone to attend, whether you’re a member, regular attender, or a first-time visitor.
