Adults

Bible Study: We are presently studying the book of James. “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” James 2:17

Ladies’ Bible Study: Currently, the women are studying the Parables of Jesus and using the book from Gerald M. Bilkes entitled, “Glory Veiled and Unveiled –A Heart-Searching Look at Christ’s Parables”

Prayer Meetings: We meet for prayer meetings every first and third Wednesday of each month.  We begin with a time of reflection and instruction based on a Scripture reading and a meditation from a Christian book or video. Following the mentioning of different prayer and praise items, there is a time of prayer with all present being given the opportunity to pray. We often sing before and after the time of prayer too. It is an edifying time together for all who attend. And with prayer meetings, the book we are using, “A Good Old Age – An A to Z of loving and following the Lord Jesus in Later years” by Derek Prime

Reading Group: The reading group is to facilitate dialogue and fellowship, as well as to encourage the uptake and consumption of theologically-sound books and materials. As a group, we have completed Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics. We are currently studying John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion. The group meets approximately once a month. The reading schedule and previous notes are available online. Everyone is welcome to join! Please speak to Alex if you are interested. Link: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/117212-free-reformed-church-of-calgary

Confession of Faith Class: This class is for those who are thinking to become confessing members of the congregation. The class is primarily for covenant youth raised in the church who come to the point they personally and publically desire to confess the Christian faith they have been raised with, or who at least are seriously thinking about this matter. The class is also for those who would like a refresher course on some of the basic truths and convictions of the Christian faith as also taught in our churches on the basis of God’s Word and the Reformed Confessions. In addition, all those visiting our church who may be interested to learn more about the Christian doctrines and practices of the Free Reformed Churches in anticipation of possibly joining or having joined the church as confessing member, are also most welcome to attend these classes. Usually, the class involves about 20 sessions with the following being the main topics in our study, plus any questions that may come from those in the group meeting. Contact Pastor Hans Overduin if you are interested to join a class at 403-259-6591 or at pastoro@shaw.ca.
