Each fall and spring, BFC offers weekly classes and groups where you can learn, deepen your faith, and become more like Jesus in various dimensions of your life.  We call them “electives” because you have choices. Elective sessions focus on Bible teaching, discussion with others, and the application of God’s truth to one’s life. Typically, an elective is 8 to 10 weeks in length, depending on the type of class or group.


Lectio Divina

October 29 —November 19, 10:15am —11:15am
Room 120
Facilitators: Pastor Mike Brooks, Cyndi Lamb, Joan Jenkinson

Lectio Divina (Latin for "divine reading") is a traditional practice of scriptural reading, meditation, and prayer intended to promote communion with God. It does not treat scripture as only a text to be read and studied, but more as a way for the text to "read you". The goal is to be formed more into the image of Christ, not accumulate intellectual knowledge. This four-week class introduces participants to the history and practice of Lectio Divina in both a personal & group setting.
