"....I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 - NIV
The Fellowship of Life Church as founded by Greg Manalli, it Senior Pastor, in May of 1980. The vision and direction of the church has been incorporated within its name -- Fellowship of Life. The thrust of the church has been to bring people into a deeper fellowship with Jesus Christ and with one another, and to enjoy an abundant life full of joy and purposes that God has for every individual.
In its early years, the church met in various places in Cheshire. As the church went through its growth stages, it was located in the surrounding towns of Southington and Wallingford, before moving to its present location on Sandbank Road (Cheshire) in 1985. With each move have come new opportunities and new challenges. All have worked to strengthen our character and prepare us for the work the Lord has for us.
Fellowship of Life Church is only a local congregation in Cheshire, but also has a regional sphere of influence. Congregants come from all over Central Connecticut and beyond. In addition to our regular Sunday morning service and Wednesday night prayer meeting, we have a number of house churches which meet throughout Central Connecticut on a flexible schedule to maintain the direction and flow of the Holy Spirit's leading. These house churches also meet locally on the first Sunday of each month (usually at 10:00AM) in place of meeting at the church. These house church meetings give the believer opportunities to grow spiritually with one another and to learn to care for, and intimately walk with, members of the Body of Christ for their mutual well-being. In this way, Christ is brought to our neighborhoods and communities to touch people with God's love and purposes -- Christ working in us and through us.
Fellowship of Life is contemporary in its style of worship, charismatic in ministry led by the Holy Spirit, and fundamentally biblical.
