ADULT DISCIPLESHIP

Adult Sunday School

9:30-10:15 AM - Sundays

At First Baptist we value continuous spiritual growth. We have Sunday School classes for all ages, year round. Pick a class that seems to be the right fit for you and jump in! You can join a class at any time. New classes start periodically.


Adult Sunday School starts at 9:30 AM. Parents, the drop off window for children's Sunday School is from 9:20 to 9:30 AM. Adult classes will end at 10:15 but children's classes will go a bit longer. Parents, please pick up elementary children from Sunday School between 10:20 and 10:25. Middle School and High School kids do not need to be picked up by parents.

Small Groups

Small Group have wrapped up for this school year but we expect to launch a new set of groups September of 2022.

This past September FBC launched small groups meeting in homes on Sundays. These groups are for all adults who attend FBC including newcomers. Groups meet 10 times, every other week but only once a month in Nov. and Dec. Small group gatherings start with a time of fellowship and prayer. Then they watch a 10 minute video based on the Gentle and Lowly book and then spend time casually discussing it and its relevance to our lives. Home groups are a wonderful time of fellowship and nourishment.

 

Groups will be using the book Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortlund. Group have already started but if you are interested in joining a group please contact office@fbcmiddleville.net
