Through discipleship classes at FBCA, we are intent on making disciple makers. They differ from Bible Fellowship in a few key ways. Where Bible Fellowship combines relationship building and prayer support with Bible study, our discipleship classes focus more exclusively on developing skills, knowledge, and resources that equip you to help another Christian grow in their discipleship journey. Additionally, these classes may take up key issues and topics related to Christian discipleship and/or doctrine.
Classes are offered in the building at various days and times.
