As a church that is still growing, we recognize that our strength and vitality comes from our ability to know God, to experience his great love for us in the Gospel, and to find ourselves in his great mission. So, our pastors lead the effort to keep our church growing in the study and application of Biblical truth as well our understanding of the gospel's centrality for everything in our life.
NFBC is offering the following Christian education classes on Sundays at 9:30 AM:
Teacher: Pastor Jay Catanus
Jesus calls us to love our neighbors and invite all people into the life he gives. But so often without realizing it, we fail to do this because we cannot see beyond our own perspective. This study, based on the book UnChristian, exposes us to the perceptions that people have of Christians. Join us as we discuss these challenging perceptions and discern how they ought to shape our relationships and community.
Participants in the class are responsible for obtaining a copy of the book for their study.
Church Family 101
Teacher: Pastor Jintaek Chung
This class is for those who are seeking to become members at NFBC. Students will learn the history of NFBC, what we believe and seek to be as a church, discuss and share how God has been working in our lives, and learn what it means to follow Jesus in faith together as a family, including being baptized as a public and symbolic declaration of our inner faith in Christ. We will finish our class on Easter Sunday (4/20/14) with a baptism service for our new members who have not been baptized yet.
The Gospel of Mark
Teacher: Carmelo Blancaflor
The goal of this class is to encourage and challenge students to search the Scriptures by studying the Gospel of Mark. This class is geared toward seniors (55 +) and those who are new to NFBC. Lessons will be in "Taglish," a combination of Tagalog and English in order to facilitate better communication with and among students. There will be a special focus on the practical applications of the lesson and students are encouraged to share their personal reflections.
