Bible Studies

All Wednesday night studies are cancelled January 30 due to weather. Studies will resume next week on February 6.


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.

Winter 2019 Precept Studies

Precept Study: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

In this last course of our Kings and Prophets Series, you’ll see worsening religious and political conditions in Judah. The final chapters of 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles introduce us to the last kings of Judah – one the best since King David (“the Good”), the other the worst Judah ever had (“the Bad”). When God brings the Babylonians in to judge Judah and Jerusalem for their sins, everything gets really “Ugly.” Study hard and you’ll learn how God can keep you when your life combines “the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”

Do Lesson 1 before the first week.

Precept Study: Galatians

As the gospel spread across the Roman world in the first decades after Jesus’ earthly ministry, conflict arose. Jews and Gentiles were believing the gospel, and a struggle over what it meant to be a Christian began. What does it mean to live under grace? Do you have to keep the Law to be a Christian? All of it or just part of it? Who is right? How will we know?

God used an apostle to write a letter to some churches that were struggling with this issue, a letter that still speaks today. Its message clearly defines the relationship between Law and grace, and how Christians live under grace, led by the Spirit, free from bondage.
