Small Groups

Discipleship doesn’t just take place on Sundays! FBC has multiple opportunities for fellowship, Bible Study, prayer, sharing, and relationship building each week. Check out the various ways for you to connect through a small group setting.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study – on Tuesdays!

2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

Wednesday Bible Study on Tuesdays is an ecumenical Bible study that follows the Narrative Lectionary cycle of readings. If you’re not familiar with it, here are some Narrative Lectionary FAQs.

We seek to interpret Scripture together open handedly, always asking questions of interpretation and application. We consider historical roots within Scripture texts, but do so through the framework of individual’s questions. That is to say that each and every Tuesday is always new. Each person brings his or her own insight, questions, and points for application to each Scripture reading.

We meet in the church library at 10:00am every Tuesday. Grab a cup of coffee, bring your Bible (we have extras if you forget yours), and join us for spirited conversation and honest reflection on God’s voice in Scripture.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast - UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

This group of men was originally formed in the late 1970’s to study a variety of Christian writings, create fellowship, and provide spiritual support for each other. Today’s group continues to be focused on those areas and is still going strong!

We select a book to study and discuss it together. We also share a prayer list of concerns – of those within our church membership and of those friends and family members beyond our walls – as an important part of our mission.

We meet each Wednesday at 7:00am at Luther Oaks (retirement community), which is located at 601 Lutz Road in Bloomington. If you would like to join us for breakfast and fellowship, simply come by and join us!

Women’s Bible Study

Psalm 119:105
Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.

The women in this group focus on various books on Scripture, life, and faith. The leader for a particular book creates a list of Scripture readings which correlate to individual chapters.

The women meet in each other’s homes on the first and third Sunday of the month at 6:30 p.m. On occasion, we do outreach projects in the community to remind others of God’s love for them.

If you are interested, please call the church office to find out a specific meeting day and place. We would love to have you join us!

Gardening Group

1 Peter 4:10
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

If you have a green thumb or just love being outside caring for plants, this may be the group for you!

In addition to our beautiful flower gardens, we have several small vegetable gardens. The produce from these is given to Home Sweet Home Ministries for their food cooperative.

During planting and growing season, beginning sometime in mid-May, we meet at the church on Saturdays at 8:30am, so bring a pair of gloves and we’ll meet you in the garden!
