Growth

Becoming the person God made you to be is a lifelong journey, and we’re here to help you take steps in the right direction. These classes and Bible studies will help you understand how learning is connected to growing as a disciple.

Core Classes

Connect your faith to everyday life!

At First Free Church, we’ve thought long and hard about the most important things that every disciple of Jesus should understand and cultivate in their daily lives. As a result, we’ve created six unique learning experiences that will help every adult disciple grow in their faith.

Who are these classes for?

These classes are ideal for anyone exploring Christianity or the Church, anyone new in their faith, or those desiring to build, or perhaps rebuild, a firm foundation as a growing disciple.

What to expect:

We offer six classes spread out over two years. Each class is 8-12 weeks long and will include reading material, class handouts, lots of interaction, practical application, and plenty of opportunity to go deeper in core areas related to spiritual growth.

Worldview

Navigate your way through competing worldviews and popular systems of belief in this new Core Class. We live in a world with a lot of beliefs, opinions, and feel-good messages. This class will help you understand what a Christian worldview is, and how to cultivate one practically in your own life.

Bible Studies

Building on the foundation of our Core Classes, we’d encourage you to make your way to one of our many “elective” classes. At First Free Church, we offer a variety of learning environments for studying books of the Bible and various topics of the Bible. With opportunities for men, women, and co-ed groups, these spaces are great for building community, too!

Explore Classes

In today’s cultural climate we are trying to make sense out of many competing worldviews. Explore Classes will be offered seasonally and will touch on topics related to human sexuality, cultural diversity, spiritual gifts, gender issues in the church, marriage & divorce, and abortion & adoption.

Participants in Explore Classes will have the opportunity to think about these issues from a biblical perspective. These classes are practical in nature, dealing with important conversations taking place in society, and participants will have the opportunity to learn more about what we believe the Bible teaches as communicated in our Position Statements.
