  1. To teach the importance of home fellowship
  2. To teach that a strong church is a product of several effective home fellowships.


Everything about a flourishing society starts from the home. A strong church also starts from the home. A church is usually made strong by having several home fellowships. The first home church is recorded in Acts 1:13- Upper Room.  A home fellowship, also known as a house church, church in the house, cell center or small group, is a gathering of people who meet regularly in a home for worship, study, and fellowship. In a home fellowship, a small group of individuals or families typically come together to worship, pray, study the Bible, and discuss spiritual topics.

Home fellowships can be an opportunity for individuals to ask questions, seek guidance, and build meaningful relationships within their faith community.

In subsequent lessons, we shall look at guidelines and precautions for having a successful, effective, and impactful home fellowship.


  1. Examine passages in scriptures that made references to home fellowships. Acts 1:13, Philemon 1:2, Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 16:19, Acts 20:20, Colossians 4:15, Matthew 18:20, Romans 16:5, Hebrew 10:25
  2. Briefly discuss some activities expected in the home fellowship. Acts 1:14, Acts 2:46
  3. How can you have a church in your home? Matthew 18:20


The main Church can be likened to a Ship. The home fellowship can be likened to a life support boat. You will need both in the Christian journey!

MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 18:20
