Adult Ministry

The aim of Adult Ministries of First Baptist Church is to provide an environment that encourages and equips adults of all ages to fully live out their faith in daily life. The Adult Faith Journey  is a life-long process of seeking and maintaining a relationship with God by becoming more and more like Christ in beliefs (orthodoxy) and behaviors (orthopraxy).  This life-long journey of spiritual formation is expressed through Knowing Christ, Growing in Christ, and Showing Christ to Others.

Adults are invited to join one of our adult Bible study classes that meet 10:15 – 11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. We encourage you to stop by the Information Desk near the elevator and coffee station for a printed list of classes or to ask for someone to escort you to a class of your choosing. You will find a list of available classes here.

Small Groups

Small Groups connect adults in meaningful relationships with one another at times other than Sunday mornings.  These groups vary in composition and structure, but they are designed to help adults study God’s Word, care for one another, serve together in ministry, and grow together in fellowship. For more information about meeting locations and times for our current small groups, please call the church office or email us at info@fbcgriffin.org.
