Adult Ministries

The Adult Ministry at Sunnyvale FBC is all about worshiping, growing, fellowship, and serving one another to further the Kingdom of Christ.

Bible Fellowship Groups

Sunnyvale FBC small group classes exist to create community and service opportunities.  By studying the scriptures together and accepting various ministry opportunities, these groups allow believers to grow in their faith toward a more disciplined life and walk with Christ. Starting Sunday, July 5th, ADULT ONLY Sunday School will be offered both online and on campus!

For a list of our classes, you can download a brochure in PDF form below.

Care Groups

We all encounter difficulties and go through hard situations.
Circumstances in which we find ourselves are most often overwhelming.

Benevolence

The primary purpose of the Benevolence Ministry is to assist people in times of need as the hands and feet of Christ. Though meeting physical needs does not directly accomplish the Great Commission, we recognize that it is often a doorway to do so. As a result, our commitment is to minister to the whole person, whether it be a physical, emotional, or spiritual need that arises.

Hope Ministry

Sunnyvale FBC wants to help the hurting by offering to heal through Bible-based support and encouragement groups that meet on campus on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM.  Each group is designed to meet a specific need but all groups offer Biblical instructions and loving support because each participant is significant because each is loved by God; each created in His likeness and image. We also offer a ministry for widow and widowers more information is available by contacting the church office.
