Hosea: God’s Persistent Love led by Debra Nicolds
Go and marry a prostitute.” These are the first words God spoke to his prophet Hosea. Why would he ask this of one of his special spokesman? Because he wanted to teach Hosea, the nation of Israel and all of us today a lesson we would not forget. This a lesson is painful yet glorious; a lesson of love, pursuit, and redemption. There is no fee for this class.
Ephesians led by Sandy Garman
The book of Ephesians is a foundational book for the Christian Life. The Apostle Paul tells us who we are and how to live in the light of this knowledge. The good news Paul presents will radically transform how we view ourselves and our daily responsibilities. There is no fee for this class.

Throughout August, you can sign up for Dinners for 6 +2 ministry as a single person, or a couple. You will be scheduled for 3 gatherings (with 4 other people who you will grow to know and love) between September—December. As a host for one dinner, you will provide the entree at your home. As a guest for 2 other dinners, you will be asked to take one item to someone else’s home. What is the +2? We are encouraging you to invite a +2 of newcomers, guests, neighbors, or co-workers to each of your dinners. Hopefully your +2 will be someone you have just met or want to meet. Think outside your comfort zone and be sure to include singles, widows and widowers. You can sign up between services in courtyard or online on the church web site at fbcpasorobles.org.

A way to connect, love, learn and serve within the body of Christ.
Let’s face it. Getting to know people can be hard work. Relationships take time and yet when we make the effort to connect with others we are blessed and so are they.
First Baptist Church wants to help you connect with other people within our body to help you love, learn, serve, pray, and care for one another. The best way to do this is through our T360 Small Groups. If you desire to be part of one of these Transformation Groups or just want more information, please fill out the form on this site or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
