FA19-01 – The Old Testament with Christ Focused Eyes - Men's Bible Study
Instructor: Pastor Paul Abeyta
Meeting Info: Ongoing (until we go through every OT book) - Wednesdays: 6:00am - 6:45am @FFC
Description: In this class you will go over key texts in the Old Testament that contain shadows and types of Christ and his work of redemption. Truly, the whole Bible is on the topic of Christ and his work of redemption. We can make a line from any text to this, and we should. But there are also many events which happened in the recorded biblical history that remind us Christ in a special way. It is often called the "Apostolic Hermeneutic" and reading the Bible in this way will help to grow you in Christ and your love for the gospel. Essentially - we are trying to learn to read the Old Testament with this question in our minds - 'what does this teach me about Christ, or help me to understand his work of redemption.'
Each week, a new verse or passage will be assigned. The group will open with prayer, asking God to make us holy men and give us grace to lead in our homes and follow him where he has us. Then we'll discuss the text and spend a few more minutes in prayer. Feel free to join at any time and have some fellowship in the Word before you go to work, or before the rest of your family is even awake possibly.
Materials Needed/Cost: Bible

FA19-03 – A Study through the Book of Genesis
Instructor: Ross Buchanan
Starting Date: Ongoing
Meeting info: During 2nd service @ FFC in the Fellowship Hall
Description: Genesis tells us where it all began. It’s the first book of the Bible and it takes us from the creation account through the beginnings of God’s dealings with his covenant community especially, and all of mankind in general. It’s the 4th most quoted Old Testament book in the New Testament and having a proper understanding of what God was doing in the history of redemption through Genesis will build your faith. Genesis is important for today. Feel free to join in at any time and enjoy some fellowship with the saints on the Lord's Day. DISCLAIMER - Genesis will be wrapping up in a month. The class will be moving onto a new book, which is soon to be decided.
Materials Needed/Cost: Bible.
FA19-04 – Recovering Redemption
Instructors: Mike and Nelda Provancha
Starting Date: September 18th
Meeting info: Wednesdays 7:00pm – 8:30pm @ the Roberson Home (Antioch)
The Bible is clear from the beginning that God intends for His people to experience life abundantly. So why are things such a mess–even for Christians?
In this 12-session Bible study, Matt Chandler gets to the root of brokenness and our destructive patterns of behavior. With relentless grace, Matt unpacks true repentance and the doctrines of justification, adoption, and sanctification with remarkably practical application. It's time to start living like we believe in the ongoing power of redemption.
Materials Needed/Cost: Notebook/Bible.
FA19-05 – Herman Who?
Instructor: Jeff Strawther
