Worshiping God is not simply what we do on Sunday mornings. In God's Word, we are exhorted to live godly, gospel-oriented lives at all times and in all places. This lifestyle of daily following Jesus and growing in godliness is called discipleship. To that end, Franconia Baptist offers various opportunities during the week for studying the Bible together and cultivating discipling relationships. These programs are not ends in themselves, but rather tools we use to equip and encourage each other in following Jesus in our daily lives.
Here are some of the ways we seek to follow Christ and grow together on a regular basis:
At FBC, we are committed to cultivating authentic personal relationships, with the aim of loving one another and helping one another grow spiritually. These discipling relationships are at the core of our life together as a church. In fact, all of the above discipleship opportunities are undertaken with the goal of equipping and encouraging Christians to pursue relationships that are Christ-centered, authentic, and servant-oriented. This vision pervades everything we do, as we seek to obey God by making disciples (Matt. 28:18-20) and living out the "one another" commands in God's Word (John 13:34-35; Eph. 4:32).
One-to-one discipling takes place at various times throughout each week as individual believers meet with one another for prayer, Bible study, accountability, encouragement, and other means of helping one another grow in faith and godliness.
Community Groups are available for members of Franconia Baptist. These groups meet at various times throughout each week, usually in someone's home. The goal of Community Groups is to promote gospel growth, unity, and service through close, accountable, and committed relationships.
For more information on Community Groups, please contact the church office.
Franconia Baptist offers Discipleship Classes every Sunday at 9:30am. These one-hour classes are aimed at equipping adults on a variety of topics, including Biblical Studies, Theology, Christian Living, Church History, and more. Childcare is available.
Note: Discipleship classes have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 precautions. We intend to resume Discipleship Classes this summer, and we look forward to seeing you there! More information to come soon.
Every Wednesday evening we gather to for a time of prayer, fellowship, and verse-by-verse study of a portion of God's Word. We invite you to join us on Wednesday evenings, even if you can only come occasionally.
This gathering is only taking place via Zoom until further notice. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
