Purpose of Family Bible Hour
The Family Bible Hour ministry desires to equip the church (3rd grade and above) to handle and apply God’s Word for themselves in pursuit of godly living. We have classes for all ages during the Fall and Spring semesters each year. Our FBH is unique in that all of the classes study the same text in age appropriate ways to help foster conversations around the Word at home.
Family Bible Hour (FBH) aims to serve the church by teaching bible lessons highlighting the following framework.
Our Bible lessons will provide context to how a particular passage of Scripture fits into the complete narrative of the Bible.
Our Bible lessons will reveal how a particular passage of Scripture contributes to major theological doctrines, emphasizing what it tells us about God and how we relate to Him.
Our Bible lessons will encourage and provide opportunities to practice major spiritual disciples like, prayer, worship, bible reading, and bible study during and in preparation for each lesson.
This study will look at Paul’s letters to his children in the faith, Titus and Timothy. These letters contained important information for the local church as a community seeking to grow in godliness together.

Titus 2:11–15 (ESV) — 11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. 15 Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
1 Timothy 6:11–12 (ESV) — 11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
2 Timothy 3:14–17 (ESV) — 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
