Community Bible Study

First Baptist Church serves as a host meeting place for the local chapter of this international and non-denominational organization.  Community Bible Study classes are composed of people from many different churches who have decided to incorporate a CBS class because it complements their local church and helps them grow spiritually. They encourage class members to belong to and actively support their local churches and to be servants and leaders in their congregations.  They have classes for practically everyone. This includes:

Adult classes are offered during the day or evening and can be single gender or co-ed.  Children’s classes, from infants to middle schoolers, because no matter how young, children need to know about God’s love.  Teen and student classes to help children grow in friendship, character and their relationship with God.





CBS meets every Wednesday from 9:30am to 11:30am starting in the Sanctuary.
