Community Life Groups meet to participate in short-term topical studies that both churched and unchurched individuals and couples find beneficial. Because Life Groups offer First Baptist Church of Tampa members a prime Branching Out opportunity, the ideal group would consist of about half churched and half unchurched participants.

Community Life Groups are encouraged to develop any time during the week in any location, such as homes, coffee shops, restaurants, offices, etc. Several studies are currently available in the Discipleship Library, but others can be purchased for use on request.
