Grow. Gather. Go.

We desire to see women connect with the Lord Jesus Christ and the FBCO church family in 3 ways. To see them GROW in their relationship with the Lord through studying scripture and growing in discipleship, to GATHER for times of fellowship, community, and equipping, and finally to GO into the world equipped and confident in pointing others towards Christ and his love.

9:30 a.m. / 6 Week Study

Sweeter Than Chocolate! Hebrews 11 teaches the big picture of the Bible using God's summary in Hebrews 11. It concentrates on heroes of the Faith and puts them in context of the whole Bible. Often viewed simply as "the faith chapter," Hebrews 11 provides so much more as it propels readers to a quick and clear understanding of the Bible's history of redemption. This application-rich study teaches new students the basics of inductive study and pushes advanced students to go even further in discovering truth for themselves.
