Bible Studies

First Free Rockford offers a variety of Bible studies for Men and Women.  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

Fall 2019 Book Studies

Inexplainable Jesus

Unexplainable Jesus by Erica Wiggenhorn

This fall we will be digging into the book of Luke. Join us as we look at the truths in this timeless book. This fall, we will have a team of teachers that will be unpacking the truth and teaching us. Teachers are Erin Blume, Jessi Uran, Brandy Pardee, Meredith Domanico and Sharon Conrad. Crowds clamored, women wept in awe, disciples dared to do the impossible—all because of Jesus. Somewhere in the overly familiar, we’ve lost our fascination. Whether you’re worn thin, filled with questions, or desperate for more of God, come encounter Unexplainable Jesus. Experience the culture and customs of His day and follow Him into a life unimaginable.

Step into the streets of Jerusalem and encounter the Jewish Rabbi who turned the world upside down. After rediscovering Jesus on the pages of the book of Luke—or maybe discovering Him for the very first time—you’ll see there is no other plan, goal, ambition, or Person worth following but Jesus.

Fall 2019 Precept Studies

Precept Galatians Bible Study

Precept: Galatians

We are excited to be studying the New Testament this Fall! Our Precept class has spent quite a number of studies digging into the Old Testament, so we are looking forward to learning from the New as well. 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? Please join us as we look to God’s word for the answers.  This study is led by Amy Sanderson.

The Gospel of John Mens Bible Study

The Gospel of John - Dr. Tony Evans

Where do you turn when the world around you grows dark? In this study of the Gospel of John, Dr. Tony Evans encourages us to turn to Christ by reminding us of the two purposes for the beloved disciple’s book—that we would believe in Jesus and find life in His name. Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy and that is our Savior, Jesus Christ. So join Tony for this 12-session series that will draw you back to the essential truths of our faith and the life found in our King.
