Get the most out of church - join a LifeGroup!

LifeGroup communities come in all shapes and sizes to ensure you have an opportunity to share life and to connect with others while growing deeper in your faith. We have numerous groups available (both on- and off-campus) for people at all ages and stages of life. LifeGroups help us gather together for various fellowship opportunities, activities, and outreach opportunities.
Scroll all the way through to view some recently launched and ongoing LifeGroups offered at First Baptist Gulfport! 

For regular updates, check back often to our social media pages & website to stay In the Loop!
We are so excited to host a new Sunday morning LifeGroup for 5th-6th graders called Club56 on Sunday mornings!

in Club56, we want to create a specific environment JUST for 5th-6th graders to help them understand God and how the Bible relates to their life, tailoring it to how they think, learn, feel, and grow. Continuing this Sunday, our 5th and 6th graders will be gathering in The Loft during the 9 o'clock hour. You can check your preteen in at the bottom of the stairs for the LifeGroup hour!
Launching THIS Sunday night at 5pm!
You're invited to this 12-week study led by Pastor Eric Smith in which we will confront some of the hardest questions that Christianity must answer: considering the complexity of sexuality, human suffering, the desire for diversity, science and faith, and other seeming roadblocks to saving faith. By the end of this series, we hope that these "roadblocks" will become signposts of hope that point people to Christ.
DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through a separation or divorce alone!
Find HOPE & Healing at DivorceCare, meeting Sunday nights at 5pm!
Defending the Faith
Wednesdays at 6PM

As Christians, we serve as Christ's emissaries to all those who have not placed their faith and hope in Him. Join Richard Smith for a weekly LifeGroup covering the ways that Scripture helps us in "Defending the Faith" as we make our way through our fallen world. 

> Contact Richard with any questions.
Meeting Thursdays at 6pm at the Billings' house!
Contact us for the address.

Each Thursday night, young women (20s-30s) are invited to gather for a Bible study & meal covering topics like saying yes to God, placing our identity in Christ, and taking direction from Scripture on our purpose in life.
Our first 6-week study is "What Happens When Women Say Yes to God" by Lysa Terkeurst. 
Every Sunday morning, we have adult LifeGroups meeting all across the campus! Whether you're a senior adult in Scrap Iron (Co-Ed 55+), a Co-Ed single or couple in the Ratcliffe group (Co-Ed 30s-50s), or a multi-generational woman seeking community in the Caviness group (Women Multi-Gen), there's a group for you!

In addition to some of these new or relaunching groups mentioned above, there are even more LifeGroups that gather together throughout the week, on campus and off! The Bible teaches that life in Christ is better lived in community, so be encouraged to find a group that disciples you, helps you find accountability and fellowship, and commissions you to live your life daily for the cause of Christ.
