Fall 1

August 21 - October 9

Core Classes

FBG Core Classes are a series of classes on Belief, Story, and Practice. Each covers critical elements of the Christian faith that we believe no Christ-follower should be without. We encourage every member at FBG to take each of the three Core Classes at some point.  

Belief | 9:00a

What We Believe:

Our beliefs shape who we are and what we do. They determine the decisions we make about our families, how we choose to spend our time, and what we are willing to sacrifice for. In this core class you will learn the foundational beliefs we hold from the Bible, why we hold them, what they mean and where they are in the Bible. This class will help you grow in the confidence of what we believe as Christians and why.

  • Room | E2.209/211
  • Teachers | Terry Goodman and Georgia Hensley
  • When | August 21 - October 9 @ 9:00a
Practice | 9:00a

What We Do:

Who do your actions say you are? The practices of your life are really good indicators of what story you hold as true and what beliefs you have built your life around. In this class you will take a look at the core practices Jesus calls his followers to live out regularly. By the end you will know these practices, have some specific ways to live out these practices regularly and understand how each of these practices help you grow in faithfulness in your relationship with Jesus.

  • Room | E1.201/202
  • Teacher | Steve Guthrie
  • When | August 21 - October 9 @ 9:00a
Story | 10:30a

What God Says:

We love good stories and are regularly inspired by stories of courage, sacrifice and generosity; especially when these stories are true. God’s story is the greatest story in all of existence. So isn’t it important to make sure we know God’s true story so we can build sturdy beliefs and right practices in our lives? In this core class you will learn God’s story from beginning to end and build a framework for how to dive deeper into God’s story for the rest of your life.
