First Free Rockford offers a variety of Bible studies for Men and Women. The Bible studies change each semester usually occurring in the Spring and Fall. Bible Studies tend to have a round-table discussion format, centered on a specific curriculum, but also offer group prayer and encouragement. If you’re looking for a welcoming environment where you can deepen your understanding of The Bible, our Bible Studies are for you. The options below will be updated each semester.
CURRENT BIBLE STUDIES
An All-New 2 Book Spring Study!
BOOK 1: When Compassion Meets Action (5 Weeks)
If it’s true that we are the sum of the decisions we make across a lifetime, then what two or three big decisions would you point to that helped form who are you today? This study encourages participants to reflect on the daily choices they make and their willingness to walk through the open doors God has provided in their lives.
BOOK 2: All the Places to Go. How Will You Know?
Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the lives we will lead and the people we will become. In fact, to fail to embrace the open door is to miss the work God has made for us to do.
Please read chapters 1 & 2 in “All the Places to Go” before the first week of study.
Where are you going? (2 Weeks)
Have you ever tried to run away from God? Can a mere man hide from the presence of an all-knowing, all-powerful God? God used a reluctant prophet to tell an evil city of His compassion for them. When God calls you to deliver a message to someone you don’t love, will you run, or get angry, or comply? Would it take a great calamity, an earthquake, or flood for God to get your attention?
Prepared to meet your God (3 Weeks)
As the Lord prophesied warnings about coming judgment through a shepherd named Amos, He can also send forth His Word through you to save others from coming judgment. Study how people can be prepared to meet their God, and your heart can be stirred to proclaim the warning with hope for those who heed it.
1st, 2nd, 3rd Book of John / Tony Evans
Comfortable Christianity often means a weak Christianity. In this study on John’s three letters, Dr. Tony Evans challenges Christians who have grown comfortable and complacent in their faith. We will discuss fellowship with God as the essence of our faith, as these Scriptures paint a picture of love, obedience, and truth. In a world that hates Jesus, we are called to love Him and His people with a fierce love.
