Bible Study Groups/Sunday School
Make Your Connection: Bible Study Groups during this Time

We are typically very fortunate to be able to gather on a weekly basis in Bible Study groups (Sunday School Classes). The majority of our weekly attenders to our worship services are also active participants in a Bible Study group. During this time, we want to encourage you to stay connected to God’s Word even as you are not able to attend your Bible Study group.

We will be in communication with all of our Sunday School teachers to facilitate connections during this time. We want to facilitate Bible Study connections even as our church has been closed due to the coronavirus.

Leader Extras

This LifeWay site is an ongoing tool available to our Sunday School/Bible Study Group leaders. As a church member, you can also access the site and select the current lesson. There are helps for navigating the lesson and understanding the content.

Giving Online

We are grateful for your faithful giving that supports the ministries of Berea First Baptist Church.

During this period of altered schedule, we encourage you to take advantage of our ONLINE GIVING so that the ministries may continue. We look forward to soon returning to ministries like Good News Club, daily classroom volunteers, church activities, and so much more. We will be actively seeking to serve during this unprecedented time, but we will still rely on your faithful giving to make it all possible.

Thank you for supporting the work God is doing through BereaFBC.
