These groups are a great opportunity to practice all the “one another’s” found in the New Testament. If you would like to be part of a small group or just get more information, contact Ben Fisk at Ben@frontrangealliance.org or by calling the office.

6.  ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES:  If you missed last week it’s not too late to join us one of our adult Sunday School classes. Information at the Welcome Center.

  • FRAC Talks:  This is our brand new format that will begin with 15-25 minutes of teaching, followed by breaking into smaller “community groups” and discussing what was taught using discussion questions provided by the teacher. Each community group will have a leader and co-leader to help facilitate the discussion. Every 4-6 weeks the main teacher and topic will change, while the community groups will stay the same for the year. Doug Goodin will kick off the first six weeks of FRAC Talks with the topic “Knowing the Unknowable Love of God (Ephesians).”
  • Cornerstone:  Cornerstone will continue like it has for several years. It is based on a more traditional, lecture style format with a teacher covering a topic in 60 minutes. These teachers typically take a few questions at the end of their lecture. The topic and teacher in Cornerstone will rotate every 2-3 months. Dwight Brown will start it off by teaching on the subject, “Meant to Be Like Christ.”

7.  LifeSteps Needs: We are thankful to be part of saving lives sharing the gospel by hosting the LifeSteps Mentoring program here in our building. There are other ways to help even if you are able to be an official LifeSteps volunteer. 

  • Saturday Greeter: LifeSteps meets with clients here on Saturday from 10-1 and is in need of someone to be downstairs in the office to open the door and greet the families as they arrive. FRAC would like to have a team of people willing to be here 1 Saturday a month for 3 hours to be a friendly face. In between guests you can read or have some quiet time to yourself. If you’d be interested in serving this way, please contact the office for details. 
  • Change Seasons:  LifeSteps will be changing all of the items in the Baby Boutique upstairs from summer to fall/winter things. They would love to have some extra hands to help sort and display the baby clothes or the new season. Come give a helping hand in the morning on September 23 or anytime during the day September 24. Volunteer Training not required.
