New Disciple Bible Studies- Fall 2020

The Word of God is Jesus Christ, and the words of the Bible tell us about that Word. Therefore, when we study the words of the Bible we always look behind, in, and through those words for God’s Word – Jesus Christ. All the Disciple studies listed below will begin on August 9 and will meet online using Zoom.

Fall Study: Love3

Here at First, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ able to transform the world through God’s Love. We measure our success in this mission through our growth as a community in love of God, self, and others. This fall, join the Love3 Study and journey with us through a series of books specifically designed to grow a disciple in love.

The first book of this study will be Invitation to the Jesus Life: Experiments in Christlikeness, by Jan Johnson
