Wednesday at First Baptist consist of our Midweek programming for Adults. This consists of different 6 week bible studies that are offered to meet the various needs of people in different stages of life. Men's groups, Women's groups, Parenting groups, apologetics are just to name a few. Each semester is broken down in to two different six week blocks.
Join us on Wednesdays for four great 6 week studies. Each study begins August 16 and ends September 27. We will offer the same four studies the second half of the Fall beginning October 11. Below is a description of the studies:
THE CASE FOR CHRIST (by Lee Strobel)::
Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God?
Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence in the case for Christ. Lee Strobel disagrees. The former legal journalist and one-time atheist knows how to ask tough questions. His own search for truth about Jesus led him to faith in Christ.
Now Strobel invites you and your group to investigate the truth about Jesus Christ leading to the facts that guided Strobel from atheism to faith in Christ.
In this revised six-session study, participants will journey along with Strobel on a quest for the truth about Jesus. Rejecting easy answers, you will sift through fascinating historical evidence as you weigh compelling expert testimony. In the end, groups may very well see Jesus in a new way—and even, like Strobel, find their life transformed. Pastors, small group leaders, and individuals will find compelling answers for their questions about Jesus in The Case for Christ DVD.
GOLIATH MUST FALL (by Louie Giglio) ::
It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life . . . an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, you’ve lost sight of the promise God has for your life. Demoralized and defeated, you’ve settled for far less than his best.
God has a better plan for you—a plan for you to live in victory. That’s why he has silenced your giant once and for all.
In this six-session video Bible study, Pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. He shows how the key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer: Jesus. Put your hope in him, and watch Goliath fall.
GOD'S AT WAR (by Kyle Idleman) ::
In gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else. While these pursuits may not be the “graven images” of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the discouragement you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.
According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue―it is the issue.
By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.
Using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, gods at warillustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God – enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.
