Bible Studies

About Our Bible Studies

We embrace the membership vow of Presence, especially in the atmosphere of small groups and classes.  God instilled in us the desire to belong.  Evening classes and Sunday School are ways to feel connected and grow in your faith.  Studying the bible in a small group is an effective way to grow your relationship closer to Christ, while at the same time getting connected with your church family. Please contact Andrea Vrtikapa, Congregational Connector, for more information.

Current Studies

The Gospel of Mark

Tuesdays | 9:00 AM | Room 842 FLC New Life
Join Sandy Maynard as she leads you through this 7-week bible study, The Gospel of Mark, by Lisa Harper. Follow Jesus through His days of early ministry all the way to the cross. It’s there we discover what it means to be recipients of His excessive compassion and the very reason for His all-consuming passion. There will be workbooks available in the classroom for $16 each.

Aging with Grace

Thursdays | 10:00 AM | Room 842 FLC New Life
Join Pat Ester on Thursdays at 10:00 AM as she facilitates the book study, Aging With Grace, by Sharon W. Betters and Susan Hunt. Today’s culture marginalizes old age, often portraying it as burdensome and hopeless. Here is a book that presents examples of women who have found joy in the passing of time as they age with grace—finding fulfillment in their enjoyment of God. Book will be available in the classroom for $11 each.

Lectio Wednesdays

During the season of Lent, we will offer a time of Scripture reading, reflection, and prayer. Time: 6:30 - 7:00 PM Place: Prayer room behind the nursery Facilitators: A different facilitator will lead each week.

Luke

Wednesdays | 6:30 PM | A852 FLC New Community
Join Courtney Lewis as she facilitates the Bible Study Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts and Outlaws by Adam Hamilton. Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke’s stories we find Jesus’ care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus’ concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today.

The Grace of Les Miserables

Wednesdays | 6:30 PM | Room A854 Classroom
Join Sara Cottrill as she facilitates the Bible Study The Grace of Les Miserables by Matt Rawle. Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story—grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope—each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. As these imperfect and relatable characters interact, we can see how these ideals work together (perhaps even in spite of each other) out in the world. The book will be available in the classroom for $9 each
