Adult Small Groups at First Baptist Church Winter Garden

Sunday Bible Studies


Meet Friends, Study God’s Word & Fellowship Together

When: All Groups start at 9:45 a.m. every Sunday morning, so there are no conflicts with the worship service you attend, whether you worship at 8:30 a.m. or 11 a.m.

Where: Given the size and layout of our campus, we don’t expect you to find the groups the first day – if you go to the Welcome Center directly outside of the main sanctuary, we can help you find the right location.

If you have a question about which Sunday Bible study is right for you, contact our Adult Ministries Pastor, Stephen Van Bever, at or ask one of the Church Greeters at the Welcome Center on Sundays before classes start.
