Frequently Asked Questions
Other than Sunday Service, how can I connect with other adults?
We offer mid-week Wednesday Wave Classes, Life Groups as well as dozens of other ministries specifically designed to meet your needs. Whether you are a new believer or just searching, whether you are a mom of a preschooler or a individual in recovery, SFC has individuals and groups who meet regularly to encourage and support you in your everyday life.
What are Wednesday Wave Classes?
Wednesday Waves are classes that meet Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm and are designed to see you grow in your faith. Classes run on semesters and include a host of topics from Christian financial advice, to issues unique to men and women, to in-depth studies of books of the Bible and so much more. See the Wednesday Waves brochure for our current offerings.
What are Life Groups?
Life Groups give you an opportunity to go deep into relationships with other believers and to fellowship with those who can laugh, cry and encourage you and your family. Life Groups meet in members’ homes across South Jersey on a weekly or bi-monthly basis. This is a great way to get to know others and live out your faith with individuals who are like minded.
What is First Wednesday?
The first Wednesday of each month is very special at Shore Fellowship. We hold what we call our First Wednesday worship experience. It is a high energy, jolt of encouragement to start your month off on the right track. First Wednesday features plenty of praise and worship through music, prayer and communion with God. It is a must attend event on the first Wednesday of each month.

The 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., young adults are welcome to come see what’s up at THIRST.
