Join a Small Group
If you are new, we recommend Discover Fellowship as your first small group experience. If you've been here awhile, jump into a small group in your neighborhood - we call these Community Groups. And, be sure to check out additional small group opportunities available through Women and Men's ministries. If you're not in a small group, you're missing out on what Fellowship is all about.
Discover Fellowship is a great way to get connected at Fellowship Fayetteville and is also our pathway to membership. You’ll hear not only who we are at Fellowship and how we do church, but WHY we do it. Discover Fellowship consists of nine sessions: three large gatherings on Sunday mornings and six small group sessions in homes.
During our unique season of church, we felt the need to reframe and reset our small group vision. This is both a season of high need for people to be connected and an opportunity for seasoned or new leaders to take initiative in their immediate sphere of influence. Our small groups will be defined by these four components.

This is both a season of high need for people to be connected and an opportunity for seasoned or new leaders to take initiative in their immediate sphere of influence. Our small groups will be defined by these four components:
Groups of 10 or less meeting in homes. 2-3 families, 3-4 young couples or few groups of roommates. Groups will be small enough to be safe and allow for others to join. Groups will large enough to share life and serve the community when possible.
Gather those naturally around you.Consider starting a group or meeting with those close in proximity to you. Use this opportunity to reach out to neighbors or those in need close by.
For those with kids, include them. An opportunity to involve your kids. Whether they are little, young or teens, make an attempt to have family small group.
Our community needs your contribution. People can serve in many ways, both inside and outside our church. Be a small group that helps and serves each other. Be a small group that serves our local schools, hospitals and partner ministries.
A Community Group is a small group in your city/neighborhood that typically meets in a home two to four evenings per month. Groups vary by life-stage and topic of study. Some groups coordinate childcare or include children in the study, while others are for adults only.
Within a Fellowship small group, each person will discover a place to:
Belong - Connect with other Fellowship families within your city/neighborhood.Grow - The greenhouse environment for spiritual growth, centered on God’s Word.Serve - A group of people who band together to serve others in their community – reaching out to those without Christ, reproducing disciples of Christ, and releasing leaders to play their part in fulfilling the Great Commission.
Our studies help women connect and build new relationships through the study of God's Word while challenging and encouraging one another.
Women's discipleship is truth and life shared in the context of authentic relationship for the purpose of multiplication. A spiritually older woman in Christ (discipler) teaches and models how to live a godly faith-filled life to a spiritually younger woman (disciplee). Contact Margo Bodishbaugh to inquire.
This quarterly event is designed for young women in their twenties and thirties to provide practical tools, solidarity, and encouragement to navigate this season of life in a way that glorifies God.
Our Fall Retreat allows women to get away for 24 hours, have authentic conversations, laugh, and deepen relationships with other women through worship, teaching, and shared meals in the natural beauty of New Life Ranch.
We know that men easily isolate or stagnate and so we want to see men released into each other’s lives and following Christ together!
We have various Bible studies that meet throughout the week, generally on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday mornings. The studies vary by season and you are welcome to join at any time.
We have several retreats that take place throughout the year. Fishing, hunting, golfing, and motorcycle riding. Always be on the lookout for an upcoming opportunity.
We have many discipleship and mentoring relationships that naturally take place as a result of our small groups and Bible studies. If you’ve never been discipled or have a passion to pour into other men, please let us know! Contact Michael Smith to inquire.
We desire for all of Fellowship’s people to mature in their relationship with Christ, be trained for ministry, and then be released into a ministry that fits their God-given gifts and passions. From greeting new faces, to leading a small group, to helping behind the scenes, we have a place for you!
Northwest Arkansas is blessed with a myriad of resourcing organizations that exist to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those hurting in our region.

Leaders serving oversees need the care and support of our church! When they visit NWA, we support them through on-campus housing that we call “The Village.” Meet tangible and relational needs including hospitality, preparing their homes, picking teams up at the airport, and helping teams feel supported and cared for while they are with us.
