At First Baptist Church Leander, we believe that learning together is an important part of Christian growth. Our goal is to help you proclaim and portray Christ.  We utilize Bible Life classes to better understand God and to please Him.  That is why we set aside an hour every Sunday for the entire church to grow through learning. We want you to come away with an inspiration for a godly life, to teach your kids (if you have them) how to live, and to connect with God.  Recognizing the diverse spiritual life of our congregation, we have several adult classes that cover a wide-range of topics and age groups. We have classes for senior adults, adults, adults with kids, for new members, and for women and men. In short, there are classes for everyone.

Below you will find some basic facts about each class, along with a brief description of what the class is studying and its approach to the material. It is impossible to capture the flavor of a class in a single paragraph; but, perhaps this guide will help you find a place to begin exploring. All our classes provide support and fellowship to their members.


    Mark and Meriam Tummon's know that you'll find that the amazing, ceaseless, reckless love of Jesus is the secret to every parent's success.  The work they do in his service to his people and your kids is a ministry of love.  Both his love for us and our love for him. That love is what impels us day after day, taking up our tasks as parents and loving, serving, praying and encouraging one another.  Our time together as friends and parents is never wasted....it is always our coming together  that models the very care for our souls.  


    Greg and his wife Jackie Gillis teach our median adults class.  They know well that the Bible is the Holy Spirit's book.  And that it throbs with the life and vitality that is the Spirit's own.  Their life enjoyment (besides their grandkids) is God's Word that contains much practical information for living the Christian life.  In the lawless world we live in, people need instruction on how to live a life that pleases God.  And that is exactly what we find in God's Word.  It provides the boundaries of right and wrong, useful guidelines for living a fulfilling, satisfying life not only pleasing to God, but also helpful to our fellow man.  You'll discover He is a God who heals, and makes fully alive and :His Word is like the rain and snow that waters the dry earth and never ever returns to Him void.  Come join us for the journey.


    Donna McCarty has a heart to teach  women the God-first life.  She's  quick to admit  that she has nothing to offer another that she herself did not first receive.  If her classroom ministry is anything, it's a ministry of love...the love of Jesus and love of people.  She says, "They nailed up the Lord of life to die a cruel death he didn't deserve, but willingly--even joyfully--he embraced that death so he could give us his own life to live, risen out of death and into life eternal.  Just giving people my love couldn't ever be enough.  My role is to faithfully give people the love of Christ.  His love is perfected through us. and that's the only thing worthy to teach.".


    Mike McAdams cares deeply about encouraging men to Christ.  Too many men today deep down are convinced they are unworthy of God's love and that they would never amount to much as a Christian.  They have a sense that something within them is irretrievably broken and that it is up to them to somehow fix it.  But Mike McAdams knows that man's answer is revolved around a man's proximity to God.  Men need to be called back into the community of faith and communion with God.  When men learn the value of living with faith in Jesus Christ, life changes,  families change, communities change. Faith is built piece by piece and day by day.  That's the power of teaching men the truth and power of God's Word.  Living for Christ  actually frees a man to live a life of righteousness, innocence and blessedness.  In Acts 5:38-39 we find the test of of a man's leadership, "Leave these men along!  Let them go!  For if their activity is of human origin, it will fail.  But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men!"
