Learning Hub groups are centered on growth, discovery and a deeper understanding of Scripture and how it applies to everyday life. These hubs take the form of seminars and may focus on finances, marriage, friendship, our work, or knowing God.
Who is Jesus? What did he accomplish? What does it mean for me? This seven-week course is designed to explore the Christian faith.
This three-week seminar is designed as an orientation for guests and newcomers to FHBC as well as those who are interested in exploring next steps. It focuses on God’s design for the church and why it is so important. It is also a requirement for those considering baptism or church membership. FHBC 101 will be offered March 7, 14, and 21.
Interested in thinking carefully about God and his truth? This group will meet on the third Wednesday of the month in Room 206 off of the Hub (6:30pm). They will be considering C.S. Lewis’ work Miracles.
Ladies Bible Study
Leader: Bev Leeds
We meet every other Tuesday morning (9:30am-11am) in Room 206 off the Hub starting January 12. We will be studying the book of Isaiah.
Book Hub (co-ed)
Leader: Michelle Schellenberg
There will be two opportunities this season. The group will meet on Monday, February 1 (7pm) to discuss Tish Harrison Warren’s book Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life. The group will also meet on Monday, March 15 (7pm) to discuss Paul M. Gould’s book, Cultural Apologetics: Renewing the Christian Voice, Conscience, and Imagination in a Disenchanted World. Both discussions will be held in the Hub. Sign up to receive communication and plan to join in on one or both.
Creativity and Conversation Hub
Leader: Pete Anderson
This hub is a “meeting of the minds” and will have a two-fold focus. On the one hand, ideas in a particular chapter of Andrew Peterson’s book, Adorning the Dark, will be presented and discussed (reading of the book is encouraged but not necessary). The book is a multifaceted exploration into creativity. On the other hand, the group will also set aside time to share their thoughts and reflections on what group members are reading, watching, listening to, etc. This group will meet on the 2nd Sunday evening of every month from 5:30 to 7pm.
Book Hub (Young Ladies)
Leader: Kari Kennedy
We will be reading the book Unseduced and Unshaken by Rosalie de Rosset and exploring the concept of what it means to be a woman. The American culture is so crazy and confusing, and it’s sometimes difficult to know how to cope with all the expectations and mixed messages – and how do I do all of that as a Christian woman? What does it mean to live with dignity? I have been wanting to read this book for a while, but I would love to have others join me on the journey. We will meet to discuss on January 16, February 20, and March 20 (time TBD).
Calvin University January Series Hub
Leader: Michelle Schellenberg
These presentations will be livestreamed weekdays throughout January (12:30pm-1:30pm). We have highlighted several that we think would be of interest. Gather in the Hub to watch the livestream and then spend half an hour in discussion and critique. Join us for one or more of the following presentations: “The Power of Story” with Matt de la Pena (January 7), “The Limits of Technology and the Hope for a More Personal World” with Andry Crouch (January 15), “What Is the Color of Compromise?” with Jemar Tisby (January 18), “Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age” with Bruce Feiler (January 21), and “Prophetic Fire and Persuasive Gentleness” with Scott Sauls (January 26).
