Core Groups

*COVID-19 UPDATE: Join life groups online by contacting life group leaders or Pastor Tim. You will receive a link to join through Zoom. 


Core Groups at ANCF exist to deepen our connection with God, one another, and the vision of ANCF. In our Core Groups, people share with each other what they have learned from the Sunday messages and further study the passages in greater depth. Joining a Core Group is a great way to grow as a disciple of Jesus while getting to know others at ANCF. Together you’ll pray, worship, eat, serve, and have fun.


Each Core Group may have a different make up, but all have the same goal –to grow as disciples. Check out the Core Groups below and see if there’s one that fits you. If you don’t see one that fits you or if you have questions, please contact Pastor Tim at tim@ancfchurch.org.

    Leaders: David Brown: brown.2866@osu.edu & Mary Brown: mbrown01@cscc.edu


    Our group consists of young singles and multi-generational married couples with and without children. We believe that the ministry of the spirit of God that brings everlasting glory will make us a letter from Christ written on our hearts to be known and to be read by everyone. (2 Corinthians 3:2-3) We take a personal approach by applying the word of God to our lives. A few of the ways we value this is by taking time to share our quiet times together, pray for people we are reaching out to, and meeting together for meals in our homes.
