discipleship

"Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. And in fact, you do love all of God's family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more." (1 Thessalonians 4:9-10)


We believe we should never stop growing in our knowledge of the Scriptures.  No matter where you are in your faith, we believe in the urgency of growing in Jesus more and more.  We invite you to join us on Sunday and Wednesday nights for discipleship with Pastor Tim, or you can attend one of our additional classes led by a guest teacher or member from within FBCR.

sunday nights (6:00-7:00PM)

Discipleship Training for Adults


Current Class: 
The Historical Jesus & the Witness of the Gospels

            

Each year, around the time of Jesus, popular publications such as Time and National Geographic, along with television networks, all run specials on what we can know about Jesus from history. In the end, they conclude that Jesus was a historical person, but probably not the Jesus revealed in Scripture. They cite key differences in the gospel accounts and deny the supernatural (mostly) in their quest to understand Jesus as a historical figure. 


On the other hand, many conservative Christians respond with ad hominin attacks on the study of the Jesus of history. This three-part class will introduce us to the understanding the “quest” for the Jesus of history, differences between history and faith, and the witness of the four gospels, which the early church decided provided the authoritative accounts of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and his significance today. 


Join us on Sundays, March 1, 15, and 29 at 6 PM in room 205. Bring your Bible, but no book will be required for this course! Pastor Tim will lead!
