If you are new to OFCN or just beginning your personal journey of discipleship, one of our foundations groups may be a good beginning point for you.

Each group is offered two or three times a year and is designed to help a new Christian or new attendee connect better with Christ and OFCN. In these groups, people will discover what the Church of the Nazarene is, what prayer is and the power it has, how to read and understand scripture, and how God has created them and the purpose He has for their lives. These are our foundation groups:
