discipleship classes

On Sunday evenings at 6:00pm, First Baptist Church offers discipleship classes.  The goal is to serve and build up members within the church by providing an opportunity to focus on an aspect of spiritual growth while also reaching out to potential visitors with an explanation of what living out the gospel practically looks like.

Our current study begins Sunday night, September 15th at 6:00pm.  For 12 weeks we will be studying the book War of Words by Paul Tripp.

“Talk” seems so normal, so ordinary, so harmless. Yet there are few things we do that are more important. And underneath the normality of it all is a great struggle, a war of words that we fight every day.

Who hasn’t been hurt by the words of another? Who hasn’t regretted something they said? Who hasn’t’ had to referee an argument? Who hasn’t
wanted to talk seriously with a loved one, yet there seems to be no time. Recognizing that words are powerful, Paul Tripp shows us how the gospel transforms the way we communicate. Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word is the only hope for our words. In our war of words, he is the one who gives us the victory. Tripp directs us to a renewed reliance on our heavenly Father’s abundant grace and a more Christ-honoring, people-benefiting life of talk.

Here is Paul Tripp’s introduction to War of Words:

For those who are unable to go through this study but are still interested in the topic, the book will be available in the bookstore.
