adult studies, classes, and small groups

God's plan is for us to grow up physically, to grow in relationships, to grow in our faith, and to grow in our relationship with God. But not all of these areas of growth come naturally. They require effort and intentionality. This is especially true of our growth in faith and discipleship. We grow in our faith as we worship, learn, and fellowship with other believers. We encourage you to participate in a study.

Studies are offered in the fall and spring. Our men's study runs year round.

first Frisco iron works men's group

Fridays, 6 - 7 am in the Gathering Area (just outside the Sanctuary)
Led by Rev. Mark Vowell

First Frisco Iron Works is a ministry for Christian men. It refers to the refining activity of God that is needed in the life of every Christian. Refining and forging require tremendous heat and intentional shaping. A tool that has been properly refined and forged is more effective, and less likely to break under pressure. Important point: Men who participate in this ministry are not the fire, or the hammer, or the anvil! We are the lump, being refined and shaped for God’s purposes. For men, this process of spiritual refining and forging works best in the company of other men who are committed to the same goal. Join Pastor Mark on Fridays from 6-7 am in the Gathering Area. Currently, FFIW is studying "Uncommon Influence: Saying Yes to a Purposeful Life" by Lauren & Tony Dungy.

Facilitator: Rev. Mark Vowell
When: Fridays, 6 - 7 am year-round

We also support various community outreach events and ministries.
