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
A Divided Heart / A Divided Nation
What happens when your heart is divided? What lessons can we learn from our lives today from the examples of Solomon, Rehoboam, Jeroboam, and Abijam? What does God do when His people trust their own judgment and disobey Him?
God Searches for a Heart Fully His
Neither Solomon, His son Rehoboam, nor his son Abijam followed God fully, not did Jeroboam in Israel. Their hearts were divided. Would God ever find anyone to serve Him like David? Would he ever find one whose heart was fully His? God says that we are to love Him with all of our heart. Is that possible?
All Things New by Kelly Minter
Author Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.
Detours, The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny by Tony Evans
Find hope in understanding that the sudden or seemingly endless detours in life are God’s way of moving you from where you are to where He wants you to be. This study helps believers navigate detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will.
The Book of Ephesians / J.D. Greear
Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God?
He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we’ve been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world. Pastor and author J.D. Greear digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the gospel. If the people of your city, of your school, of your family, are going to hear the gospel, it’s going to be from your mouth.
