One of the reasons FBC Wheeling exists is "to connect people to God's family." We believe that when people are called to believe, they are also called to belong.
Practically this happens best through small groups. Small groups put a face to the church. This is where our vision of 'Loving God, Loving People, Making Disciples' becomes personal.
Currently, we offer two types of small groups at FBC Wheeling.
- Equipping Hour Classes- meet at FBC Wheeling on Sundays at 9 a.m.
Four times a year, we offer 12-13 week classes that are designed to equip you for life and ministry. In these classes, you will be able to learn from the many teachers in our midst as we work through books of the Bible as well as cover various topics.
Fall 2017 (September-November) classes include:
GALATIANS w/ Kenny Gainer (Fellowship Hall)
Paul's letter to the Galatian churches defends the heart of the gospel....justification by faith alone. Join us as we study how Paul confronted those who were defecting from the true gospel and those who were teaching false "gospels" in his day.
THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORD OF GOD w/ Jay Stoneking (3rd Floor)
Why is the Bible different from any other book? What do we mean when we say the Bible is “inspired”? Does the Bible make mistakes? What books belong in the Bible and what books don’t? If the Bible is thousands of years old, how can I be sure it’s been accurately preserved? How should I interpret the things the Bible says? We will be answering these and many other important questions as we study “The Doctrine Of The Word Of God.”
AGAPE CLASS w/ Mike Howard (3rd Floor)
More than just a class, Agape is a family that digs into God’s Word, prays earnestly for the church family, and enjoys singing together each week. We are currently working verse-by-verse through the book of Colossians. We’d love for you to join us!
- Community Groups - Currently on break during the summer. Groups will resume September 17. If you would like to connect to a group, contact us at the church office.
These groups meet in homes throughout the Wheeling area on Sundays at 6:00 pm. Currently, we have groups gathering in five different neighborhoods across the valley.
Groups can be found in East Ohio, Elm Grove, National Rd. (right by the church), Oglebay, and Woodsdale.
Our community groups are intentional families of believers that provide a place to regularly live out the “one-anothers” in Scripture as we discuss God’s Word, eat meals, serve our neighbors, and walk through life together.
If you would like any information on any of our different small group opportunities, please contact us at the church office.
