Through our Study U educational ministry, First Baptist Church of Piedmont offers a variety of small-group discipleship classes periodically throughout the year in addition to Sunday School. Most of these Bible studies meet at 5 pm on Sunday evenings during the school year with some Bible studies meeting during the week. Each course usually lasts 6-12 weeks. Regardless of your age or life experience, there is a place for you to grow in the Word and to build meaningful and lasting relationships with others at FBC Piedmont.
A list of Study U classes offered this fall can be found below. While there is a fee listed for the study materials used for each class, please know these fees may be waived in cases of need. We would love for you to join us!
The Armor of God
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
The question is not “Are you a worshiper?” but rather “What kind of a worshiper are you?” In True Worshipers, Bob Kauflin, a seasoned pastor and musician, opens our eyes to the massive significance of being the type of worshiper God is seeking. Rooted in the gospel of grace and filled with practical application, this book aims to connect Sunday morning to the rest of your life—helping you fulfill your calling to be a true worshiper each and every day.
Amen | The Story of Scripture from Eden to Eternity
Amen | The Story of Scripture from Eden to Eternity is a study on the story of Scripture. This five-week study is designed to teach the big picture story of the Bible and show how every part of Scripture points to Jesus. The study walks through various genres of Scripture and helps show how everything from the law and the prophets to the gospels and epistles points to Jesus and His redemptive plan. It walks through the movement of the story of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. The study gives an overview of the main points of the story and features daily and weekly questions perfect for individual or group study. Great for both new believers and those that have been believers for years, it connects the dots between the Old and New Testaments and teaches why all of Scripture is important to every believer.
It Is Well | Walking away from anxiety and into God's Word
It Is Well is a three-week study on anxiety. This study encourages women to go to the Lord with their worries and anxieties, and to rest in His all-sufficient grace. The study walks through Scripture and points to the source of our hope in all of life's anxieties. We are reminded that God can redeem even our fear, worry, and anxiety for our good and for His glory. This study is designed to point you to God, to help you to know Him more, and to equip you with the Word of God to turn from anxious thoughts and into the Father's arms. We are praying that it will encourage and comfort you. Each week contains five days of study material, including daily study questions. Each week also has a memory verse day and a weekly reflection day to help dig deeper into Scripture.
