Adult Studies, Classes & Small Groups

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.

"I am" sayings of jesus study

Tuesdays, 6 - 7:15 pm in The Chapel (in person only)
Led by Rev. Steve Robertson

Pastor Steve’s New Six-Week Tuesday Evening Bible Study Starts April 18

Light. Bread. Shepherd. Life. The Gospel of John uses these and other symbols to paint a picture of who Jesus is. Through the I Am statements Jesus describes himself with rich images, showing us that he is both fully human and fully divine and calling us as his followers.

In Jesus Revealed: The I Am Statements in the Gospel of John, we will explore the "I Am" statements in the Gospel of John, learning how these words point beyond themselves to the deep mystery of Jesus Christ. Join Pastor Steve on this journey and experience the profound truth at the heart of the "I Am" statements: that Jesus is light and life, and he calls us to himself and offers us the hope of resurrection.

Chapter topics include:
1. I am the bread of life (John 6:48)  
2. I am the light of the world (John 8:12)
3. I am the good shepherd (John 10:11)
4. I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25)
5. I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6)
6. I am the true vine (John 15:1)

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 "Hazards of Being a Man" by Jeffrey Edward Miller.

Facilitator: Rev. Mark Vowell
When: Fridays, 6 - 7 am year-round
Where: The Gathering Area (just outside the Sanctuary)
