Each fall and spring, we launch new classes for you to grow in specific areas and to connect with other believers at FBC. From marriage, to parenting, to finances, to spiritual growth, there is a class specifically for you. You can register below.
CLASSES BEGIN Wednesday January 23 at 6:00pm
Women’s Connection Class - Jude
4 weeks / Teachers - Debbie Schreve, Jennifer Orgeron, Holly Bates
As we all know this world is not a safe place for Christians. The culture in which we live is anti-Christian at best. However, it is often from INSIDE the church that our biggest issues arise. Join us for this 4 week study of the book of Jude, exposing the internal dangers we as Christians face in this day and age. You will be amazed at how “current” this book is!
Men’s Connection Class - Stepping Up
10 weeks / Teacher - Greg Ashby
What's the most courageous thing you've ever done? Dig deeper into what it means to step up and live a courageous life with the Stepping Up Video Series. Based on his book by the same title, Dennis Rainey, along with Matt Chandler, Bill Bennett, Tony Dungy, Robert Lewis, Voddie Baucham, Stu Weber, James MacDonald, Joshua Harris, Eric Metaxas, Crawford Loritts, and other ministry leaders unpack what biblical manhood looks like and what it means to be a godly, courageous man in today's world. Through engaging stories, expert teaching, humorous vignettes, man-on-the-street interviews, and personal insights, these men's ministry leaders call every man to become courageous leaders in their own lives, marriages, churches, and communities. Accompanied by small-group discussion and individual follow-up exercises, men of every age will learn action tools for gospel-centered living to empower them to be true heroes in their families and communities.
Developing Deeper Bible Study Skills (this class is limited to 15 people)
7 weeks / Teachers - David and Pat Bain
This will be a seven week course designed to help the participant develop or enhance their ability to personally study God’s word. The skills learned can be applied to daily devotion time, deeper Bible study or even used to help prepare lessons and materials for teaching. This course will be based on learning inductive Bible study, which includes observation, interpretation and personal application. We will explore “basic” Bible study tools, such as cross referencing, word studies and even some introductory understanding of verb tenses. The study will center around the letter to Titus, which is a topic our culture desperately needs to hear. Some outside work is expected.
6 Weeks / Teachers - Chris and Rochelle Schroeder
Happy is good. But holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy...but holy? Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages.
Financial Peace University
8 weeks / Teacher - David Cook
($75 for materials per couple, scholarships available)
Created by best selling author Dave Ramsey, FPU is a financial course that teaches step-by-step how to create a budget, pay off debt, spend wisely, and save for the future. If you think about it, money touches every nook and cranny of our lives. Whether you’ve got your money tied up in credit cards, student loans, that massive car payment, or even those unwanted medical bills, it all adds up—and fast. It can feel like you’re stuck in a constant cycle, living paycheck to paycheck and anxiously wondering when the next shoe will drop. Guess what? Most of us have been there. The good news is that you don’t have to stay there!
I Am a Church Member
6 weeks / Teacher - Shelby Cowling
From Thom Rainer’s book of the same name, this class will discuss the attitudes and responsibilities of church members. It will cover what congregations should really be focusing on — praying for church leaders, being a functioning member, treasuring church membership, and more. (FYI- This is not FBC’s official membership class.)
13 Weeks / Teacher - Kathy Wright
Begin your journey from mourning to joy in this highly interactive and supportive class designed for those who are grieving the loss of any loved one.
Successful Step Families
Ongoing / Teachers - Bill and Rhonda King
This study and support group provide encouragement and advice for couples who are walking through the challenges of blending all their children into a new family structure.
