Our desire is to create engaging environments where people can truly feel as if they BELONG in community. As people are connected to one another, we believe this will enable them to BECOME more devoted followers of Christ.
Our goal is simple: CONNECTING THE UNCONNECTED SO EVERYONE CAN BELONG. We desire to be an inviting place where people in our community can experience life-transformation through the saving power of Jesus Christ. Simply put, we want to “BE the Church!”

In the early days of the New Testament Church, small groups of believers gathered together for prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of the Word. That Biblical model for growth and community continues to this day. It has taken many forms across the centuries from in-home small groups to the more traditional form today known as Sunday School. FBK uses both of these community environments to keep you connected to the church.

Sunday School

Sunday School has been (and always will be) a long-standing tool FBK uses to help people grow in their faith. Click here to see the variety of Sunday School classes that meet on campus during the weekends.

In-Home Community Groups

The purpose for our In-Home Community Groups is to give people an opportunity to allow further opportunities to make meaningful connections and grow.  Meeting in a Community Group throughout the week can be a very convenient way to stay connected, but it also frees people up to serve on Sunday mornings.

 Bible Studies

The Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Chrch of Kettering loves to study the Bible together.  We recognize the power of God’s Word and the joy of studying it within community.  We invite you to join in one of these classes starting this fall!

  • Meet in FBK Room #9 in the Adult Wing

This 6 session video bible study bestselling author Lysa Terkeurst helps women explore the roots of rejection; the lies we believe as a result; and the truth about who God is, who we are, and what it looks like to live loved.  The study guide is packed with deep Bible teaching and includes guided video notes, group discussion questions and between-sessions personal studies.

And when your cravings are satisfied with His love, a healthy body will follow.
