Family First - Led by Michael & Raylee Butler in the Parlor

Family First is a mentorship group study taught by Michael and Raylee Butler focused on equipping families with foundational principles to help weather life’s storms. This 12-week study will dive into what the Bible teaches about: 1) establishing a strong family foundation, 2) building a healthy marriage, and 3) equipping parents with the tools to succeed.



Women's Group - 20/20 by Christine Caine - Led by Kelly Nunn in the Fellowship Hall

How fitting to go through this study during year 2020 that has presented us with so many challenges! Kelly Nunn is very excited to lead this study and share God's message through it! Even though she loves to interact with everyone during these group times, right now she must take extra steps to stay safe because of the nature of her work. She wants you to know she loves you even if she cannot give you a hug right now!


About the 20/20 study: Christine Caine is passionate about seeing every woman equipped to live her life on mission for Jesus. In this 7-session study, you’ll develop a new understanding of how God sees you and has chosen you to help make Jesus’ name known on this planet. Through biblical teaching and lessons from her own life, Christine will challenge you to share the story of how God’s love has transformed your life right where you are.  // Optional book: $13

Men's Group - The New Testament You Never Knew by N.T. Wright - Led by Doug Matlock in the Choir Room

Doug is passionate about working with others to help them love and learn the Word of God to guide them in their lives. Focusing on men growing in the word, he will lead a study through learning the background of the New Testament in preparation for deeper Bible study.


Do you know the real story behind the New Testament? We all share a fascination for discovering "the rest of the story." We enjoy learning the behind-the-scenes facts about seemingly familiar events. In this eight-session video Bible study, well-known Bible scholars N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird team up to take you on a tour of the story behind the explosive story of the New Testament. You will discover things you never knew about Jesus' baptism and journey into the wilderness, the meaning behind his parables and miracles, the significance of his death and resurrection, the incredible expansion of the early church into the Greco-Roman world, and how the transforming mission of Jesus can still turn the world upside down today. Through reading the New Testament we continually discover that God indeed keeps his promises, but those promises don't always look like what people expected. Especially when it comes to Jesus. So, come join the journey with N.T. Wright and Michael Bird and they will help you understand the New Testament you never knew.  // Optional book: $10




Tuesday Morning Discipleship


Tuesday Morning Group

Our Tuesday morning women’s discipleship group will be starting back on September 8 at 10:00am in the church parlor. The group will work through the study Seamless by Angie Smith. Kelly Wilkerson and Glenette Russell will co-lead this study, and email Doug Matlock or contact Pat Angel to sign up!


About Seamless: In seven sessions, Seamless covers the people, places and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Participants will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God's Word. Seamless helps replace insecurity that holds participants back with clarity and helping them move forward with confidence in their understanding of Scripture. Each week of study features key information that ties all of scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies. // Optional book: $13



Approach to Discipleship

FBC Chickasha Discipleship Ministry Strategy
“As you are going, make disciples of all nations...” - Matthew 28:19


Our "Discipleship DNA" can be identified in these statments:


(We) Study the Scripture (2 Tim. 3:16; Acts 2:42; Acts 17:11)
 (We) Share our faith (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 2:47; 1 Peter 3:15)
(We) Serve others (John 13:34-35; Mark 10:45; Phil. 2:5; Galatians 6:10)


We have three approaches to discipleship:


1. Sunday School Groups
2. Discipleship Groups
3. Small Groups

  • Sunday School Groups

    Groups that meet in and outside the church helping Christ-followers of all ages worship and grow in the Lord. FBC is committed to fostering Biblical community and worship through groups.

    Key components of small group discipleship are community and outreach. The community of the group can be defined as being unified with the common cord of the Holy Spirit, as seen in Acts 2:42-47. Community not only helps groups to grow closer to the Lord, but it also demonstrates to those outside the group the realness and love of God. By doing this, groups now have open doors to reach out and bring others into the community.


    Another key strategy in small groups and Sunday School classes is creating new groups regularly, along with training and developing new leaders through mentorship within the group.


  • Discipleship Groups

    Regular, short-term groups that meet for Bible Study or to discuss books, issues, and training materials in order to become a more committed disciple and disciple-maker.


    Discipleship groups will be a vital area in which Christ-followers are inspired and instructed in making disciples in various methods and settings.

  • Small Groups

    Groups of 2-4 - Christ-followers growing together through Bible study, prayer, and accountability.


    Members of FBC who are Christ-followers are ready and waiting to help other believers grow in their relationship with Christ. In either a one to one setting, or a small group of three or four people, Christ-followers meet regularly to discuss the Bible, life, prayer, and accountability. Moreover, goals are made to see how the Holy Spirit really transforms one’s life. More than a weekly meeting, discipleship is the process of Christ-followers walking with the Lord together through life.


    This process begins with staff and ministry leaders, growing and multiplying through these groups. Members of the groups of 2-4 will be challenged as disciples to begin their own groups of 2-4 to disciple others.
