Cares Classes

Leadership Institute The Leadership Institute is designed to help equip the members of FBCO to develop their leadership skills and use their spiritual gifts, talents, strengths, and abilities to help strengthen God’s Church and grow God’s Kingdom. This 10-month leadership development initiative will be broken up into two 5-month sessions. The first five months will look at leadership from an intra-personal perspective; who am I as a leader? The second five months will look at leadership from an inter-personal perspective; how am I to relate to others as a leader? We will cover topics like; communication, self-care, spiritual discipline, delegation, vision, conflict management, attitude, goal setting, relationships. Course costs will be discussed in the first session and scholarship will ensure nobody is turned away. Call the church office at 636-272-4838 for more information.

Center for Biblical Guidance The Center for Biblical Guidance is a ministry of FBCO committed to helping people deal with life’s hurts and heartaches by applying Scripture to help them confront life’s toughest challenges in a way that pleases and honors the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the Center for Biblical Guidance, you will join others on a 10-month preparatory journey aimed at helping you be able to equip others with a Biblical worldview to gain clarity about what God’s Word says about any issue and teach them how to put it into practice by being a “doer of the Word” (James 1:22). Course costs will be discussed in the first session and scholarship will ensure nobody is turned away. Call the church office at 636-272-4838 for more information.

Worship: Believers Experiencing God Worship is God’s highest agenda for Himself and for His people. This six-week interactive study shows the importance and necessity God sees in worship, what worship is, and will serve as a reminder of the true focus for worship. $15 for the book that is used during class.

Art of Parenting Being a mom or dad is one of the most rewarding jobs you’ll ever have as well as one of the most challenging. The baby that won’t sleep grows into a toddler that won’t eat who becomes an adolescent that won’t communicate. Not every day is a bad day, but all parents need some help and encouragement along the way. There is an approach to parenting that can reduce the stress and increase the harmony in your home. This 8-week class will highlight the core issues that everyday parent and child need to address together. Cost is $10 per book and parents can share if they’d like.
