There are lots of different ways to get connected here at Anniston First.  We want to help you connect with other people in meaningful ways.  We believe that is how our faith grows. What is a group? It’s an umbrella term we’ll use for all the opportunities to connect and serve together that Anniston First has to offer. It is choirs, prayer groups, UMW circles, bands, Sunday School classes, study groups, men’s groups...the possibilities are endless.  These are the groups where we “do life” together.


SUNDAY MORNING GROUPS: We have Sunday school classes for all ages and stages of life.  They meet at 10:00 AM each Sunday. You are encouraged to contact one of our pastors or ministry staff if you have any quesions. Want to know more? Click here

You’re invited to join with a group of men who seek a dynamic relationship with God and who are committed to the power of prayer.  In Matthew 18:20, Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”  Come for coffee, sometimes snacks, always fellowship, and a devotion.  We meet Tuesday mornings at 7 am, at Camp Lee Farm.  Prayer is a powerful thing, and it will make a difference!
Join us as the needs of our members, friends, and community are lifted up in prayer.  We meet each Thursday at 10am in the church library. No prayer request or concern is too small or too large!  Come join us to add your presence, support, and voice in this most vital spiritual endeavor.
