Growth Groups

Belonging to a smaller group is an integral part of Arlington FM simply because life is better together. The fact is, it’s easier to build community within a small group setting than it is at church on the weekends. Groups are a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God, have fun and make a difference.

Here are some of the Group opportunities currently available:

Deep & Wide:

A 6 week discussion group with all materials available on request.  Read and discuss Andy Stanley’s insightful book detailing how churches grow both deep and wide–deep in their relationships with Christ and wide in their outreach to the surrounding culture. Book purchase and pre-registration required.

Men's Bible Study Fellowship:

An ongoing Bible study in the Gospel of John. Meets here at Arlington FM on Tuesday evenings at 6:30p.m. 


Mother’s of Preschoolers meet the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesday of the month September thru June 9:15-11:15a.m.  Contact Katie at: for information.

Ladies Bible Study:

Tuesdays at Arlington FM from 9:30-11:30am beginning in September.  Contact or (360) 435-8986 for information.


Leading or hosting a Small Group is simple!  You don’t need to be a Bible “expert” or lifelong group leader. Our staff will help you with curriculum, how to facilitate effective discussions, tips on how to build community, and more.  All you need is one or two other people! Register for a one hour new group leader meeting with one of our pastors and discover the limitless resources available for starting a new group!
