Adult Discipleship Classes

Due to COVID-19 our schedule has changed until further notice.  Sunday School classes are not currently meeting on campus.  Several classes meet through ZOOM.  Worship times have changed to 9:00 am and 11:00 am.  For further information, please contact Darwyn at dfletcher@fbcmi.com. 

Sunday School Classes
Sunday School is the church mobilized to carry out the Great Commission to make disciples according to Matthew 28:18-20. Our classes are open groups that are organized into departments based on age and life stage. An open group is a group that expects guests each time it meets. Sunday School classes gather each Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. to engage men and women in biblical community through the study of God's Word, prayer and caring for one another.

Because Sunday School teachers play such a vital part in our overall disciple-making process, we ask that prospective teachers meet some basic requirements before serving as leaders. Prospective teachers need to be members of the church who are actively participating in a class and who have at least some experience leading Bible study discussion in a group setting. The Discipleship Pastor will meet with each prospective teacher prior to him/her leading a group of people.

Discipleship Classes
Discipleship classes are short-term, topical classes that equip believers to grow in some aspect of discipleship. Classes meet for usually 6-8 weeks to dive deep into a particular topic, such as understanding how to study the Bible, financial management, marriage, parenting, evangelism training and prayer. There is usually a charge associated with workbooks or books which participants purchase for the duration of the class. Most discipleship classes meet on campus on Sunday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Or on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Classes typically begin meeting at the beginning of the Fall, Winter and Spring semesters.

Because Discipleship facilitators play such a vital part in our overall disciple-making process, we ask that prospective facilitators meet some basic requirements before serving as leaders. Prospective facilitators need to be members of the church who are actively participating in a class and who have at least some experience leading Bible study discussion in a group setting. The Discipleship Pastor will meet with each prospective facilitator prior to him/her leading a group of people.

Weekday Bible Studies
Weekday Bible studies for men and women connect people into an ongoing Bible study experience. These Bible studies are open groups that meet on campus. Most of them meet year round, with the exception of holidays. These Bible studies include the Prayer and Share Wednesday night Bible study,, the Titus 2 Women's Bible study that meets on 2nd and 4th Thursdays, a Men's Bible study that meets on Wednesday nights, a Griefshare group that meets on Sunday afternoons and other Bible studies for women offered during the week at various times.

Prospective teachers of these Bible study groups need to be members of the church who are actively participating in a class and who have at least some experience leading Bible study discussion in a group setting. The Discipleship Pastor will meet with each prospective teacher prior to him/her leading a group of people.

 

Discovering FBCMI
Discovering FBCMI is a class required for people to attend prior to joining the church. This class meets the first Sunday of each month, at 9:30am in the church office conference room. The purpose of the class is to introduce men and women to the discipleship process, as well as help them find a place of service and connection with a Bible study group. This class serves as an important part of our discipleship process because it provides an overview of the church's mission and spells out how each member may play a part in helping us achieve that mission in Brevard county. People interested in church membership can email us at dfletcher@fbcmi.com for more information about the membership process.
