To enrich and extend our common worship life and Bible study, the ministers of First Baptist Church of Asheville invite all members and friends to join them for a time of prayer, communion, conversation, and fellowship. These in-person experiences will be hour-long small groups that meet at the church campus or in homes. Zoom meetings will be offered for those who are not able to attend in-person gatherings.

Please join us in this exciting adventure.
