Life U Spring 2017


Connected: Being the Body of Christ 5-5:50 p.m. • Fellowship Hall
Led by Timothy Gibson

Who are we? What does it mean to be a Christian held by the grip of God’s grace? 

Where do we stand? What does it mean to be a part of the Church?

That which we know for certain is the one true foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ
(1 Corinthians 3:11). 

The Lord is the cornerstone upon which everything else is built (Ephesians 2:19-22). 

How we ought to approach life together at First Baptist Church happens as we — strengthened by the Holy Spirit — continue in the path of grace and truth that our Savior paved. 


Join us in this very important study as we examine the nature of being connected as the Body of Christ. Through a facilitated study with break-out groups, we will explore with one another:

(1) The Trinity. 

(2) The Gospel. 

(3) Our Identity. 

(4) Our Membership. 

(5) Our Place in the Family. 

(6) Our Talents. 

(7) Our Opportunities. 

(8) Our Values.

Then, the conclusion of this church-wide
study simply asks: Are We All In? 

Come, be a part! Come, be connected!
