Adults

Equipping-U

One of the best ways of connecting with the FBA believers is through our various “Equipping-U” classes. The curriculum changes from term-to-term, but the content is always based on listening to God speak to us through our everyday lives. Give us a call at 865.982.2661 to see if our current course offering brings something new and fresh to your life.

 

The purpose of adult Sunday School is to connect you with a caring community of other believers. While we greatly value the preaching of God’s Word in corporate worship, we also value each individual living the Word in relationships with other members. A Sunday School class provides the environment for you to put names with faces, become better acquainted with other believers, and share the joys and sorrows of life with those who call First Baptist Alcoa their home. If God is leading you to be part of this church, then let us help you take the next step in getting connected.
