Discipleship Groups

New Year 2022!


Wednesday Night Discipleship Groups

Discipleship groups for adults are back in full swing. See our group descriptions below. To sign up for one of these groups, email fbc@fbcchickasha.com with the group name! Some groups have optional books to purchase, and the church can help with the cost if anyone needs assistance - everyone is welcome to participate. We meet at 6:15pm every Wednesday!


Midweek Bible Study - Led by Pastor Michael Butler in the Sanctuary

Spend time each week in God's Word along with our pastor, Michael Butler, as he leads in a mid-week Bible study group and prayer time for all adults.


Women's Study Group - "God of Freedom" - Led by Merita Beaty in the Parlor

In this 10-session study of Exodus 19–40, journey through the story of how God shepherds His newly-liberated children into an understanding of what their freedom means: lives consecrated for service to God and to one another. Revisit familiar scenes of the giving of the Ten Commandments, the idolatrous worship of a golden calf, and of the intricate details of the tabernacle. And with fresh perspective, ask what these stories teach God's children today about how to live as those set free.


Caring & Sharing Group (Women) - Led by Kandi Bayless in the JOY Classroom.

A group designed to bring women together to share both their burdens and their blessings. Each week we will share a devotional along with a testimony, then spend the rest of our time in discussion and prayer. This goal of this group is to provide a place to lift one another up, as well as provide the flexibility to allow one to come as often as her schedule allows.


Tuesday Morning Women's Group - "God of Freedom" - Led by Pat Angel in the Parlor

In this 10-session study of Exodus 19–40, journey through the story of how God shepherds His newly-liberated children into an understanding of what their freedom means: lives consecrated for service to God and to one another. Revisit familiar scenes of the giving of the Ten Commandments, the idolatrous worship of a golden calf, and of the intricate details of the tabernacle. And with fresh perspective, ask what these stories teach God's children today about how to live as those set free.


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.
