Small Group Bible Study
In a world that reinvents its ethics and morals on a regular basis, knowing and understanding the sure foundation of truth in the Bible is vital. The best way to learn the Bible is in a small group of peers in which you can ask questions, struggle with application, and hold one another accountable.
That process looks like this: (1) Acknowledge that God has authority in our lives. (2) Study the words of the Bible. (3) Discover the truths taught in those words. (4) Personalize those truths to our unique life situation. (5) Struggle with the implications--life changes that need to be made. (6) Believe and obey.
That's a hard process! We need people we trust to help us go through that, and to go through it alongside us. This is true no matter how old or young we are. And that's why we have small group Bible studies every Sunday morning. You can call it "Sunday School" if you want, but it's not just for kids. It's for everyone.
What time should I get there?You are invited to join us for coffee and donuts in the Atrium from 9:00-9:30AM. For Sunday School, arrive by 9:20 to allow yourself enough time to park, drop off any children, and get to your room (don't worry--we have greeters to help you get around). For the worship service, arrive by 10:35 to give yourself enough time to park, drop off children in the nursery, and get to the Sanctuary (again, we have greeters to show you where to go).
How should I dress?At FBC Thomson, you'll see folks in business casual and casual attire. We want you to be comfortable, so wear what you would feel the most comfortable in in a worship service.
Where do I park?Our main parking lot is located between our building and our neighbor, the Post Office. You can enter it from in front of or behind the building. There are spots just for visitors on the row of parking spaces adjacent to the building. Once you have parked, you can enter the building through the covered entrance, and one of our greeters can direct you where you are going.
What style of music should I expect?We seek to worship God in spirit and truth through a multigeneration worship service. Our music is a blend of traditional and modern hymns, and we are supported by a variety of instruments from guitars to orchestra.
What will my kids do?During Sunday School, we have a class for every age. Nursery and preschool (through age 5) are located in rooms on Level 3. During the worship service, our nursery is for children through age 3. All other children are invited to worship with their families. About half-way through the service, we have a children's sermon for kids of all ages. Following that, kids age 4 through 1st grade are invited to attend a children's worship service that meets in the Chapel (on Level 3 near the nursery).
