Bible Studies

Genesis - The Book of Beginnings

Bible Study Part 1 - This Fall we will study the Prologue - Genesis 1-11 (the story of Creation through the Tower of Babel)

Bible Study Part 2 - In Spring we’ll explore The Story of Abraham, followed by Part 3 the Story of Isaac and then the final study will cover the story of Jacob and Joseph.

Be sure to attend this class... for in Genesis God lays the foundation for the whole story of the Bible, pointing us forward to Jesus.

the life of david - from shepherd to king

Pastor Bauer is leading a bible study on the life and history of one of the greatest kings of God’s People; King David. See how God works through outcasts and extraordinary sinners to bring about His Will. Walk with David as he went from shepherd to musician to a warrior and finally a king, all by God’s design. It's David's life as you've never heard it before. Learn the lessons that King David had to learn and how we can apply them to our lives today.

Event Calendar

Fishers is a very active church and we are thrilled at the daily activity that goes on here!  Lots of activities sometimes equals double booked facilities or staff being unaware of things that are going on.  If your group is planning a church related event (on or off campus), if you have regular meetings, rehearsals, or if you would like to use the facilities for something unrelated to a church activity, please submit your request to Amy Benitez at amy@fishersofment.org. 

Coming soon... a request form for calendar requests and facility use items on CCB!
