Wednesday evenings

Whether you'd like a mid-week spiritual boost, your schedule works better for Wednesdays for extra study, or you just simply enjoy learning, studying, and being around others, Wednesday evenings at First Baptist have plenty of opportunity for all of the above.  The atmosphere is more relaxed on Wednesdays and there's something for everyone in the family, from babies through senior adults.  In 2022, we're bringing back Wednesday Night Dinners to help make it easier for busy families to get to church without having to rush through a meal in order to arrive on time.  RSVP form available below.

Class Title: From Beginning to Forever
Led by: Ashley Forrest
Class Time: 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Duration: Winter/Spring 2023
Class Style: Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Women
Class Location: Room 103
Overview:  Many Christians today are daunted by the Bible, seeing the size and scope of Scripture as intimidating and overwhelming. The result is often a fragmented understanding of parts of the Bible, which leads us to view it through the lens of our individual stories, primarily looking for different verses or passages to help us live our everyday lives. But, in our search for personal truth, we fail to see how the entirety of Scripture works together to show a bigger story—God's work to redeem and restore the entire world.  In this study, author Elizabeth Woodson will guide participants through the story of the Bible, showing how all 66 books combine to form one unified narrative. Weaving together the rich theological truths found in Genesis through Revelation, this study shows the eternal significance of what God is doing in the world and how He invites us to be a part of it.
Class Title: I Am Jesus
Led by: Harvey Gendreau
Class Time: 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Duration: October 12-November 30
Class Style: Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Men
Class Location: Room 204
Overview:  In the book of John, we read about Jesus' mission in this world. We are shown the greatness of His power, as well as how He lived and interacted with those around Him. Through the reading and studying of John's Gospel, we get insight into who Jesus is through the statements that He made Himself. He says "I AM the bread of life..." "I AM the light of the world..." "I AM the door..." "I AM the good shepherd..." "I AM the way, the truth, and the life..." "I AM the true vine..." "I AM the resurrection...." These statements of Jesus, found in the book of John, are called the "I AM" statements, and they recall the Lord God's self-identification in Exodus 3:14.

In this 7-week Life Group series called "I AM Jesus," participants will explore these "I AM" statements found in the Gospel of John. We will observe and discuss the power, richness, and depth of each statement. We will also consider how we, as followers of Jesus, can apply these statements in our lives today.

Class Title: Seeking Him
Led by: Jo Barringer
Class Time: 9:00-11:00 a.m.
Duration: 12 weeks
Class Style: Devotional/Group Discussion
Class Composition: Women
Class Location: Fellowship Hall
Overview:  The revival that the women will be talking about in this study is for God’s people—those who, by faith in Jesus Christ, have received salvation and belong to Him. (People who do not belong to God cannot be “revived;” they first must be regenerated!) Since the days of Adam and Eve, God’s people have often chosen to resist His will and rebel. Because of His great love, God keeps calling them back to intimate fellowship with Him. God’s grace—the desire and power He gives us to return to Him—always accompanies His call to revival.

**Childcare provided for women who need it to attend. Let church office know by Monday of that week**

Thursday mornings

Class Title: The Bible Code: Finding Jesus in Every Book in the Bible
Led by: Tom Cabaniss
Class Time: 6:45 a.m.
Duration: Ongoing
Class Style: Devotional/Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Men
Class Location: Room 103 (in-person)
Overview:  Pastor Tom Cabaniss leads this men's group weekly on Thursday mornings. The Bible Code by O.S. Hawkins is about finding Jesus in every book in the Bible. Jesus challenged His followers to "search the Scriptures... for they testify of Me" (John 5:39).  As this group will study together, Jesus can be found Genesis-Revelation, and in finding Him, life is found.  Eternal life and in the here and now.  The men at this group gather around tables with coffee for about 20 minutes, enjoying a devotion and discussion. This is followed by a time of intercessory prayer. The group then adjourns for breakfast together. New men are always welcome.
