Table Groups & Classes

Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.

A GREAT PLACE TO GET STARTED

DISCIPLESHIP IS NOT A DESTINATION, IT’S A DIRECTION.
First Church Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more and more like Jesus’. First Church Tables is a place where your belief begins to become part of the DNA of who you are in your everyday life, always growing in the direction toward Jesus. Your First Church Table will meet once each week for a few months, at the church or in someone’s home. You’ll talk through a book, scripture or just life. There are First Church Tables for adults in several stages in their life.

Depending on the Table Group you choose, we offer Children’s Programming for kids of all ages. You must pre-register your child for Wednesday mornings. You can pre-register for Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings, but walk-ins are welcome.

MEN'S TABLE GROUPS

SQUARE ONE
St. Joseph Campus
Wednesday evenings, 6:30–8:00pm
Starting March 4th
Square One is a 10-week Bible study offered specifically for those desiring a more complete understanding of scripture as one complete message of redemption. As a group, we will study several key events in Old Testament history in light of New Testament teaching and fulfillment, with the intent of revealing all of scripture as one plan, God’s plan, for the redemption of His people.

If scripture (especially the Old Testament) seems like a series of unrelated events not applicable to our lives today, or even if you just have trouble making sense of it all, this study is for you.

WOMEN'S TABLE GROUPS

TRUSTWORTHY: OVERCOMING OUR GREATEST STRUGGLES TO TRUST GOD
Saint Joseph Campus
Starting March 4th
Wednesday mornings, 9:30–11:15am
Wednesday evenings, 6:30–8:00pm
Saturday mornings, 9:00am
Wednesday evenings, 6:30–8:00pm, Stevensville Campus
When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re much more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, you can join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply personal applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.
