At FBC Ocala, we are passionate about discipleship from the cradle to the grave. We want people of all ages to grow in their love for God, His Word, and His people. With this in mind, we have opportunities for everyone in your family to join us as we seek to KNOW God, GROW Together, and CHANGE The World.
Community Groups are application based discussion groups centered around the Bible. These groups are designed to help us GROW Together with other Christians as we seek to apply the truths of the Bible to everyday life. We offer a variety of different groups that meet both on Sunday mornings on-campus and throughout the week off-campus. Want to know more about how you can join a Community Group?

Women’s Ministry is another way to connect and grow together at First Baptist Church. Women at FBC Ocala regularly meet in Community Groups and D-Groups. One way we serve women in our community is through our Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program that meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. For more information about Women’s Ministry or MOPS, please click below.
YOUNG AT HEART
Young at Heart exists to provide our adults, age 55 and older, with opportunities for leadership and service in our church and the local community and to involve adults in this age group in outreach and mission ministries.

“Serving Parents. Strengthening Families.”
NextGen Ministry is a strategic discipleship initiative for children and students. This ministry exists to equip parents to fulfill their role of being the primary disciplers of their children. Our prayer is that this would be accomplished through both investing and equipping: investing in children and students through intentional relationships and strategic teaching, while equipping parents to train their children to live a Christ-honoring, God-glorifying life.
Our primary goal within the NextGen Ministry is to partner with families to develop worshippers who are fully devoted to Christ and His Church. Our prayer is that the children and students who come through our NextGen Ministry will be passionate, sacrificial, and missional worshippers of Jesus Christ.
PRESCHOOL AND KIDS
The primary purpose of our NextGen Preschool and Kids Ministry is to partner with parents to lay a biblical foundation of salvation and a lifetime of growth in Jesus Christ. Our desire is for our children to:
Know God by worshipping together on Sunday mornings during Preschool Worship and Kids Worship, and Wednesday evenings at Kidz Club and CHARGED. We model worship in the following four ways: reading the Bible, singing, praying, and giving.
Grow Together in Sunday morning community groups and Wednesday night small groups.
Change the World by emphasizing missions weekly in Kids Worship and providing missions opportunities in our activities throughout the year.
Community Groups: Sundays at 9:15 AM
Preschool Worship (Birth-4 Years Old): Sundays at 10:30 AM
Kids Worship (Kindergarten-5th Grade): Sundays at 10:30 AM
KidzClub (Birth-4 Years Old): Wednesdays at 6:00 PM
Charged (Kindergarten-5th Grade): Wednesdays at 6:00 PM
We believe that we are created to worship — not the created, but the Creator. We seek to teach our students that in a world full of distraction and pursuit of self, only Christ can truly satisfy and is worthy of a lifetime of worship.
We accomplish this by providing Christ-honoring and gospel-centered opportunities for students to:
Know God through His Word in corporate worship on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings at The SIX.
Grow Together through Sunday morning community groups and in small discussion groups (SIX Groups) on Wednesday evenings.
Change the World through love and service by providing regular missions opportunities.
Community Groups: Sundays at 9:15 AM
