Sunday School at First Baptist is alive and exciting! Qualified teachers in every class are committed to the spiritual and knowledgeable growth of each member. Each lesson is Biblically based and each student is encouraged to open up the Bible, not only on Sunday morning but throughout the week. Elementary classes focus on building strong Biblical knowledge while Jr. and Sr. High classes build upon that foundation. Several options for adult growth offer a culturally relevant, purposeful look in the Word of God. Whether you are a new believer or a long time Christian, Sunday School at FBC is an opportunity to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
We offer Women’s Bible Studies in the fall on Monday mornings and evenings. We have men’s Bible Studies on Friday mornings all year long. Other Bible studies are available throughout the year.
