Why a life Group?
Here at FaithPoint we understand that a big part of growing in our relationship with God is more than a Sunday morning activity. Rather we strive to allow God into every part of our lives. Through small group community and study we are able to take some much needed steps to a deeper, life-changing faith in Christ. Small groups allow for personal growth as well as communal support in times of strain.

Meets at 9019 Harris St., Urbana, MD 21704
Dennis and Gerry welcome anyone to join this life group in their studio to throw a pot on one of four pottery wheels or to work alongside others hand-building pots and clay objects. The focus of the group is fellowship and occasional study of scriptural references to pottery. The group made crosses, beads and communion sets presented as gifts to newfound friends of a mission team on their recent trip to Haiti.

Meets in the homes of members
This adult life group meets to study the book, Belief: Readings on the Reason for Faith, compiled by Dr. Francis Collins. Dr. Collins is a devoutly Christian geneticist and the current director of the National Institutes of Health in Washington DC. In his review of the book, Rev. James Martin writes, “This life-giving, faith-filled and hard-nosed collection reveals why . . . true faith always seeks to understand.”
