Weekday options

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.

Led by: Tom Cabaniss
Class Time: 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Duration: Ongoing
Class Style: Direct Instruction
Class Composition: Adult Co-Ed
Class Location: Room 202
Overview:  Pastor Tom Cabaniss will be leading participants through the Book of Romans, written by the Apostle Paul, expositionally over the course of this extended study.  No textbook is needed-- only your copy of the Bible.  Though this is a "start-to-finish" study, anyone can join in at any time, as each lesson will have value in its own merit.
Class Title: Why Do You Believe That?
Led by: Ashley Forrest
Class Time: 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Duration: Fall Semester 2022
Class Style: Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Women
Class Location: Room 103
Overview:  This study will provide an experience designed to equip women to have meaningful spiritual conversations. How confident do you feel in talking about matters of faith? Do you wish you could express your beliefs with more effectiveness? Ashley Forrest will be facilitating this seven-session study for participants to gain understanding and skill to share Jesus effectively with others.  The hope and prayer is that all who participate will better understand their own faith as well.  Answer your doubts, build your confidence, and start changing lives.
Class Title: Peter
Led by: Harvey Gendreau
Class Time: 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Duration: September 7 - October 5 (5 weeks)
Class Style: Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Men
Class Location: Room 204
Overview:  This life group is open to all men and is more than a study, but an opportunity to pray together and form godly friendships.  In this 5-part series, men in this group will examine the life of Jesus’ disciple, Peter.  The five discussions focus on:
1. What in your life do you need to let go of
2. What it looks like to follow Jesus
3. How to speak about what you believe
4. How to live as a Christian who sometimes fails (Part 1)
5. How to live as a Christian who sometimes fails (Part 2)
Class Title: Sticky Faith
Led by: Lara Cabaniss & Lee Forrest
Class Time: 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Duration: September 28-October 26 (5 weeks)
Class Style: Group Discussion
Class Composition: Adult Co-Ed
Class Location: Room 201
Overview: Whether you came to last year's "Sticky Faith" or not, this second part can compliment that study or can stand alone.  All participants will be encouraged in their journeys as parents and challenged as well!  Most parents would give anything to anchor their children with a vibrant faith that “sticks” and continues to mature into adulthood. Yet, despite this deep desire, research indicates that a good number of high school seniors abandon the faith after high school.  Through personal, real-world experiences of research and sharing, this study will help to enable participants to instill a deep and lasting faith in their adolescents. Powerful strategies will be offered alongside practical ideas to help parents encourage their children’s spiritual growth, enabling them to develop a faith that sticks.

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.
