Six Week Lent Bible Study

He Chose the Nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart

By Max Lucado

In this study we will explore the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow. The nails that tore his flesh. The seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death.

There are two groups doing this study:

Sundays at 10:15 am in the Ministry Center starting February 19
Tuesdays at 7 pm in the Ministry Center starting February 22

All are welcome.  

The workbook can be purchased on Amazon.  You can also call or email the church office if you would like us to order a workbook for you.

The Power of Knowing God by Tony Evans

6 week women’s study beginning January 10th.

Get to Know God as He Really Is. Dr. Tony Evans believes seeking to know God is life’s greatest purpose. In this practical, six-session video series, he shares strategies and skills for how you can live victoriously as a child of God.

Your connection with God can be so much more than going to church, reading the Bible, and attending study groups. Using in-depth scriptural studies alongside stories from his own life, Dr. Evans will equip you with the tools you need for pursuing an authentic and life-transforming relationship with your Savior.

Maria Lammers will be hosting a women’s bible study entitled The Power of Knowing God by Tony Evans.  We will meet on Tuesday nights at 7:00 P.M. starting on January 10 for six consecutive Tuesday nights in the ministry center at First Church. 

There is a workbook as well a book to go along with the study.  They can be purchased through Amazon or let Maria know and she can order them for you.  Please order the workbook for sure, the book is optional. 

If you have any questions or want to RSVP, text or call Maria at (419) 953-6129.

Ask The Pastor

Questions sometimes arise as you are listening to the sermon on Sunday mornings or reading a passage in the Bible.

  • What did Pastor Joel mean when he said that?
  • How does this message apply to my life?
  • What other Scripture passages support the main idea of the sermon?

Now you can “Ask the Pastor” by calling or texting (419) 405-FCNK [3265].

Leave a voice message or text for Pastor Joel and he will answer your questions regarding his teaching and preaching.

He may respond to you directly, or answer questions on his blog or a Facebook Live post. We hope this will be a great way for you to continue to interact with the sermon and deepen your understanding of God’s Word!
