KIDS  |  STUDENTS  | ADULTS

Midweek at First Lubbock

We are excited to start a new semester with a full slate of studies and activities for all ages!  All activities taking place on Wednesday nights will be from 6:00-7:30 pm, and we will have a meal each week starting at 5:15 pm that you can enjoy as well for $5/person or $20 max per family. You will need to let us know the week-of if you plan to eat with us.

This semester we are trying something new.  We will have 3 nights where Adult studies will not meet, and we will feature seminars on major topics to help parents, grandparents, and anyone who is involved in the lives of kids and youth.  The focus for this semester is technology and media; each seminar will focus on different topics, provide helpful resources, and have time for roundtable discussion.

A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society by Eugene Peterson (All Adults)

Led by Ken Draughon | Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm

 

Since Eugene Peterson wrote this spiritual formation classic several years ago, hundreds of thousands of Christians have been inspired by its call to deeper discipleship. Our society is still obsessed with quick fixes. But Peterson's time-tested prescription for discipleship remains the same―a long obedience in the same direction. Following Jesus requires a deepening life of prayer, and throughout history Christians have learned to pray from the Psalms. Peterson finds particular encouragement for today's pilgrims in the Songs of Ascents (Psalms 120–134). With prophetic and pastoral wisdom, he shows how the psalms teach us to grow in worship, service, joy, work, humility, community, and blessing.

Elijah by Priscilla Shirer (Women's Study)

Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm, and Thursdays 9:30-11:00am

 

Every fervent believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm. Join Priscilla Shirer for this 7-session study through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

You Are Never Alone by Max Lucado (All Adults)

Led by Tim Thornton Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm

 

Do you ever find yourself convinced that no one cares? That no one can help you, hear you, or heed your call? If so, this study offers an encouraging word: you are not alone.

We’re not just saying you aren’t alone in feeling alone. We mean you are not alone, period. That raw, dark sense of isolation and powerlessness? It’s not here to stay. God’s presence and power is nearer than we think. We only have to look to the miracles of Jesus to know of this truth.  We long for Someone who will meet us in the midst of life’s messes. We long to believe in a living, loving, miracle-working God who won’t think twice about stepping into the thorny thickets of our world and lifting us out.

If this is your desire, join this in this study which will take a good look at the words of John and the miracles of Christ and see if they don’t achieve your deepest needs: “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).

1st, 2nd, & 3rd John by Dr. Tony Evans (Men's Study)

Multiple groups and leaders

 

Comfortable Christianity often means a weak Christianity. In this study on John’s three letters, Dr. Tony Evans challenges Christians who have grown comfortable and complacent in their faith. Fellowship with God is the essence of our faith, and Tony walks through 1st, 2nd & 3rd John to paint a picture of love, obedience, and truth. In a world that hates Jesus, we are called to love Him and His people with a fierce love.
