Introduction to ALIVE
This is the introduction class to FBC and first step in our ALIVE Discipleship process. (Meet and eat with the senior staff, tour the facilities; sessions focus on discovering what it means to be a member, discovering your S.H.A.P.E. for ministry, discovering spiritual maturity and discovering your mission). This class is for anyone interested in knowing more about FBC, its ministries and mission.
Most Bible studies help people; this one changes them forever. For more than 15 years, God has used Experiencing God in His work, showing believers how to know Him intimately while encouraging them to step out in faith and join Him in His work - with miraculous results. God has more work to do - will you join Him?
Love All People
Explore the Bible
Sunday School is the foundational strategy at FBC for leading people to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and for building on-mission Christians through open Bible study groups that engage people in worship (Adore God), fellowship (Love all People), ministry (Invest in God's Work), discipleship (Value God's Word) and evangelism (Expand God's Kingdom). Our vehicle for doing this with adults is the Explore the Bible periodicals.
Invest in God's Work
