Adult Bible School
Fairmount has an array of Sunday Bible classes for you to explore and help you make meaningful connections. We encourage you to visit as many classes as you desire to explore each one’s style, make-up of adults, and the way it conducts its time of study, fellowship, and prayer. Contact us for more information.
The Christian Homemakers Class studies the Bible one book at a time. This gives us a more rounded description on the meanings of scripture than a pick and choose, one scripture at a time method. We approach each book historically, scripturally, and spiritually, going through each verse and chapter to gather the whole meaning of God’s Word. We normally gather at 9:35 for refreshments and fellowship followed by our lesson, presented by Allen Melton. Our class hosts the annual Hanging of the Greens Christmas celebration, serves the less fortunate through CARITAS, and helps our Impact Team raise funds from the sale of our legendary strawberry shortcakes at the Spring Fair. We look forward to having you visit our class and hope you’ll consider being part of our growing group of committed followers of Christ.
Friends in Christ
U & I
Stephen Beadles leads the U&I class with lessons directly from the Old and New Testament. Each class begins at 9:30 with a hymn, a time of sharing, prayer, and a review of those who have fallen ill and those in need. The lesson follows with abundant participation of class discussion. Our class is very diverse in age from the forties to nineties. Our goal is to apply Christian Living to everyday life in the manner that Jesus taught us. The class is exceptional in its outreach to missions, contributing to needs in the community, an annual scholarship to a student preparing for the ministry, and ministering to the sick. Three times per year, we have a covered dish luncheon with great fellowship and a program. We also prepare and sponsor the church-wide annual Thanksgiving-Eve Service. Our class motto is 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” KJV
Salt and Light
Bill Farmer Bible Class
The Bill Farmer Bible Class lesson topics vary from week to week so make sure you bring your Bible. Fellowship time with coffee and refreshments begins at 9:30. The class starts at 9:45 with the singing of a hymn, prayer, and sharing of joys and concerns, followed by a lesson and discussion. Class ends by 10:40 with prayer and singing. The Bill Farmer Bible Class has been meeting since 1941 and was previously known as the Martin-Dabney Class. We are a caring, mission-minded group of mature Christians serving God locally, domestically, and internationally. Our class is made up of children of the Silent Generation with some Baby Boomers and Generation X’ers mixed in. Over the years, members have become preachers, teachers, officers, and leaders both at Fairmount and other churches. Our class gets together quarterly to share a themed potluck meal, play games, and enjoy live entertainment. At Easter, we organize and present Fairmount’s Good Friday Service to the Church and the community. Come grow with us!
Real Life Connections
Reflections of Him
Led by Ray Butler, the Walk Class is composed of people who are striving to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Our goal is to be walking closer with God each day and to respond as He would desire us to respond. Lessons cover a variety of topics and books of the Bible. We enjoy a time of fellowship and snacks before we begin our study. Members of the Walk are actively involved with the ministries of FCC. Throughout the year we schedule socials, various local outings and service projects. We enjoy our times together and invite you to join us.
