Our Adult Bible Fellowships (ABF’s) are cross-generational Bible Study groups with a relaxed, discussion-fostering environment. ABF's meet Sunday mornings after the morning worship service. The classes open with a time of sharing and prayer. Studies focus on relevant, Bible-centered topics or on a study of a specific book of the Bible.
Teacher – Robert Cross - A study in the book of Philippians, a letter from Paul to a young church in Philippi. We will examine Paul’s confidence in the believer’s becoming more like Christ even though they struggled with suffering, pride, and conflict. Location: Gym 122
Teacher – Brian Narloch - Redeem the Time. In Luke, Jesus told a parable of a rich man whose passion was to protect his surplus assets and live out his days in luxury and ease. As Christians we need to know our singular passion while conducting a purposeful and prioritized life in and outside the church. Location: Fireside Room
Salt Company ABF
Teacher – Bob Mangin - Old Testament Eschatology for the Life of the Church. Many of the things that the Old Testament saint could only look forward to are the things that we enjoy as believers today. Location: Commons
Teacher – Harold Vannoy - Continuing a verse-by-verse study of 2 Kings. These narrative books reveal much about man’s character and God’s glory in the context of the monarchies and His unfolding plan. Room 100
Foundry ABF (any age, married fewer than 10 years)
Teachers - Joel Narloch and Pastor Mark Cizauskas - Radical by David Platt. The sub-title of the book says it well: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. This study will challenge us to live an uncompromising Christian life. Room 132
Teacher – Maggie Kigar - Eschatology, Doctrine of Last Things. This is fittingly, the last doctrine in our series. We will be studying, as Jesus said, "...the things that are to take place..." Room 102
Our electives are temporary classes designed with focused subject matter in a variety of topics.
J-Walkers (Mid-week college ministry)
J-Walkers is the college-age ministry at FBCR which meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:15 pm at the home of Dallas and Nancy Calvert. We enjoy diving into God's word and what it means to be a disciple of Christ. We enjoy cultivating relationships with each other and praying for each other's needs. For location information, please contact the church office.
J-Walkers focuses specifically on the "Growing as Disciples of Christ" facet of FBCR's mission. Our goal is to further cultivate each college-age student's relationship with God. This will produce godly men and women who will Glorify God in every aspect of their lives, and is accomplished through teaching and every-day interactions.
