Small Group Bible StudIES

First Baptist Church in Lindale is a community where the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms lives. We believe one of the best ways to see and experience this transformation is through Small Groups. In these smaller communities, you can meet people, learn about the Bible, and get involved in ministry opportunities where you can love and serve people.


Whether you’re single, engaged, newlywed, or have weathered many years of marriage, we have a group for you. There are groups for every age group from Nursery and Preschoolers to Senior Adults and everyone in between. If you need help deciding which Bible study to attend, don’t hesitate to contact the church office. 

We’d be happy to help you find the right group for you.

Our Small Group Bible Studies meet on Sunday at 9:45 AM.

Join us and discover how you can connect with God, grow in your relationship with others, and serve the world through Sunday School here at First Baptist Lindale.

There's A Place for Everyone.

Not sure where to start?  Here are descriptions of all our Small Groups that might help you decide where to start.  It's not always about age and gender.  It's more about life.  We'd love to introduce you to whatever group you'd be interested in.  You're welcome to begin by spending time with more than one group.  All our groups love to welcome new people, so we know you'll be welcomed.  Then, once you find a group you feel connected to, you can stick with it and begin growing new friendships and growing in your faith.

COVID-19 UPDATE (10/21/20)

Our Small Groups haven't met since the onset of COVID-19.  But, we are set to return to meeting on Sunday, November 1.  Because of social distancing guidelines, some of our groups are relocating and making other changes in their meeting space to ensure everyone can be together and still be healthy. (Removing tables, spacing chairs, etc.)  Beginning November 1st, these groups will return to meeting at 9:45 AM on Sundays.  Below is a list of all classes that will be meeting and the new locations they can be found.  If you have questions about a particular group, contact our Church Office.  We'd be happy to help you or even connect you with one of our Small Group Leaders personally!
