sunday SMALL GROUPS
SUNDAY mornings @ 9:15 a.M.
Every Sunday morning, First Marion offers small Bible study groups for people of all ages, from birth to senior adults. These groups meet in classrooms throughout our building. If you are a guest, when you arrive, connect with one of our First Impressions team members at the doors, and they will happily connect you with a Sunday School class. Click here to see a list of all of our Sunday Small Groups.
Our Sunday Small Groups provide an incredible opportunity for all adults to connect with new friends and family as they study the Bible, fellowship together, and connect with one another in the Marion/West Memphis community. Our Sunday Small Groups utilize an incredible teaching curriculum from Lifeway, The Gospel Project. The Gospel Project is a chronological study of God’s Word. In the Fall of 2018, First Marion started in the book of Genesis and began this incredible study. Each week our adults, students and children are all studying the same Bible stories, providing opportunities for parents and children to connect throughout the week with the same material. You can check out the trailer below to find out more about The Gospel Project or click here to look at The Gospel Project website.
SUNDAY NIGHTS @ 5 P.M. (Resume on february 10, 2019)
Connection Groups are a new ministry of First Marion beginning September 2018. Connection Groups will meet in church member homes on Sunday nights at 5 p.m. Connection groups are multi-generational Bible Study groups that spark new relationships amongst the First Marion church family. Each group has a Bible Study facilitator and meets in one of the welcoming homes of the small groups. Every week, these connection group families meet together to study God's Word, build new relationships, and enjoy the fine homemade cuisine of their group. These groups meet each Fall and Spring semester. Sign up for the SPRING semester starts on January 13, 2019. The Spring Semester will get started on Sunday, February 10. If you are interested in signing up for Connection Groups, you can sign up by calling the church office (870-739-3944) or contacting our Associate Pastor, Stephen Watson.

LIFE Groups are semester small group studies for adults that meet on Wednesday nights from 6 - 7:30 p.m. LIFE Groups are designed to provide in-depth Bible Study, deeper discipleship, spiritual gifts assessment, and ministry opportunities for adults of all ages.
