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.
Winter (December 2017-February 2018) 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 TEN COMMANDMENTS w/ Rick Harris (3rd Floor)
Justification by faith alone is at the heart of the gospel. Sinners cannot be declared righteous before God by keeping His commandments (the law) because they are unable to obey them perfectly. Biblical justification sets the believer free from the law but yet the believer is called to obey the law. Join us in the study of God's law and how it still applies to all people.
AGAPE CLASS w/ Edgar Delgado (3rd Floor)
In our society Satan is often presented as a red forked comical character, a subject of ridicule instead of fear, but in the Scriptures Satan is the greatest enemy of God and man. The Bible is clear and positive about the existence of a personality of evil called the devil. Join us as we study the Doctrine of Satan.
- 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.
