Classes

The word disciple literally means "learner," one who dedicates themselves to learning the way of another. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we should be life-long learners of who he is, what the Bible teaches concerning him, and what it means to follow him. Classes at First Free are designed to do this by offering classes that both pass on the faith and equip people for ministry and Christian living. 

All are welcome to attend any class listed below, but if you're new to First Free we recommend you start with A Closer Look! Learn more here.

Current Fall classes wrap up on December 17. December 24 and 31 we will only have one service at 10 am and no adult classes.

Biblical Theology

The goal of this course is to provide tools that will help students to understand how each part of the Bible relates to the whole of Scripture and to understand how these parts relate to the gospel.

Spiritual Life Stories: A Study of Bible Characters
9:00 am | Room B3 | Class Leaders: Steve Nave and Wes Penner
This class will look at character studies of ten godly lives throughout the Bible to discover not only God’s call upon them and their response, but a developing pattern of the virtuous life that extends to each and every one of us today! No matter what season of life you are in, you will discover God’s work and calling in your work/faith space (family, church, work, friends, etc.). God has created us for a certain work he is doing in and through us in ALL of the seasons in our lives.

Colossians

Christ is enough…live like it! Christ is supreme and sufficient. He’s Lord over all creation. He’s secured redemption for his people. We don’t need to add anything to Christ. In him we can be filled, because in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell. If you want to learn about how God can be fully known, how to come to full maturity, and how to have full assurance of salvation, come and join us as we look at Christ in the books of Colossians!
