"Caring People Sharing God’s Love"

First Baptist’s ministry of education seeks to equip people to fulfill the church’s desire to be “Caring people sharing God’s love.” Weekly Bible study small groups are offered for all ages throughout the year. Book studies, film studies, and special topics are frequently presented by church staff, members, and guests. We constantly search for ways to help people along their faith journeys, offering training events that help participants to grow spiritually, to connect with other church members, and to develop a deeper relationship with God. Contact Susan Eernisse, Director of Christian Education for further information.

NEW!
Lectio Divina
We are an all-ages coed class.

This new class will provide opportunities to meditate upon Scripture and pray together. We will learn and practice two methods of prayer: Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer. Using Lectio Divina the class will focus & meditate upon a passage of Scripture. The goal of Centering Prayer, a form of silent prayer, is to consent to God’s presence for a period of time. We will use one or both types of prayer each week.
