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.

Advent Study

Starting November 10 | Thursdays | 10:00 AM | Room 842
Join Pat Ester on November 10 at 10:00 AM as she facilitates an Advent book study, The Four Emotions of Christmas, by Bob Lepine. Do your emotions fluctuate with all the trappings and clutter of Christmas? Graciously communicating the heart of our holiday loneliness and tension, Lepine unveils the cultural misconceptions spoiling our expectations.

Now That Faith Has Come

Tuesdays | 9:00 AM | 6 Weeks | A842 FLC New Life
Join Sandy Maynard as she facilitates the 6-week bible study Now That Faith Has Come by Beth Moore and Melissa Moore. This bible study takes you on an excursion to Galatia to learn more about the community that inspired Paul’s impassioned letter! Faced with the challenge of remaining true to the gospel of Jesus Christ instead of submitting to the yoke of slavery again, they needed to hear this message then as we do today. Workbooks will be available in the classroom for $16 each.

I'm Waiting, God

Wednesdays | 6:30 PM | 4 weeks | Room A854 Classroom
Join Sara Cottrill as she facilitates the 4-week bible study, I’m Waiting, God: Finding Blessing in God’s Delays, by Barb Roose. Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait on God— women such as Hannah, Ruth, Tamar, and the unnamed woman who suffered for over a decade with a painful medical condition. If you’ve felt anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed because God isn’t giving you what you want, their stories will breathe fresh hope and practical next steps in your life. As a reforming control lover, Barb mixes in her personal stories of learning how to wait for God during long seasons of unanswered prayers, family difficulties, and challenging times in ministry. Together we will discover that there is goodness and blessing to be found in times of waiting, including a closer relationship with God than we’ve ever dared to dream. Books will be available in the classroom for $12 each.

Healing Where It Hurts

Wednesdays | 6:30 PM | 8 weeks | A852 FLC New Community
Join Kim Cooke as she facilitates the bible study Healing Where It Hurts by James Moore. Drawing upon the Bible and stories of faith and hope from everyday experience, the author tells how the healing power of love can bring healing and wholeness... when life breaks your heart, when you are fighting a virus in your soul, when you are heading for a breakdown, when your faith lands you on the critical list, or when other stress fractures threaten to immobilize your spirit. This will be an 8-week class that will end on Wednesday, December 14, taking a break the week of Thanksgiving. Books will be available in the class for $6 each.
