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.

Trusting God Even When It Hurts led by Janine Kramer
Adversity is hard to endure and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow that tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? As we begin to explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and the details of our lives, we’ll begin to acknowledge His loving sovereignty . And as you come to know Him better, you’ll find ourselves trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts. Cost is $10 for discussion guide. Book is optional and $13.

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
