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.


    Partnering with parents to give our students the best opportunity to know Christ and live a life that exemplifies the teachings of the Bible is our preeminent goal.  Giving our students the experience of such programs as Student Leadership University, local, national and even international mission trips that help them understand the world in which they will one day lead is a priority.  You won't find climbing walls or Starbucks, but you will find committed leadership to help your student develop and mature in their faith and understand what a life changing commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is all about.


    Drew Coster leads our "You Are Not Alone" young adult ministry.  YANA is a young adult ministry with the hope of seeking to impact Williamson County with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Here we challenge you to take your place and join us in the single greatest movement in human history--the church.  When Jesus came to town everyone was exited because he brought hope.  He did this by serving those who were marginalized, oppressed, and in need.  We want to reflect Jesus by serving both the short and long term needs of our community by catalyzing conversations, service projects and local partnerships.  YANA will Biblically strive to empower, young adults toward Christian leadership and godly life development.  Join us Sunday 9:30 or Wednesday 6:30 in the Family Life Center..


    Will and Eva Greenwell  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 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.

  • WOMEN OF WISDOM  (Senior Adult Women)

    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.".


    Pastor Tim and his wife Connie host a Bible Life class in the worship center. The study of God's Word is central to the life and mission of FBC Leander. This class is for anyone of any age in any status of life.  It's a great chance to build your relationship with Christ, build relationships with other men and women of our church and community, make friends for a lifetime and become part of the family here at First Baptist.  Be forewarned, continued exposure to God's Word will change your life!
