Adult Ministries

Adult Ministries

The adult ministry exists to draw us together as Kingdom builders in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Christ through prayer, studying His word, fellowship and service. 

Adult Sunday School Classes begin at 9:45 a.m. We offer classes for all interests, ages, and stages of life.

For more information, contact Joanna Davis at

ANNA BROWN – Room W116

Comprised of working and retired adults age 60+, the Anna Brown Class is focused on serving in all areas of church life.  A variety of Bible study curriculum, active mission outreach and weekly prayer lists keep members connected and involved in church and community.

BUILDERS – Room W109

The Builders class has a long history of involvement with First Church and is made up of senior adults age 80+.  Study material is based on the New International Lesson series, with other studies often presented by various teachers. 

CHAMPS – Room E205

This group of 40’s – 60’s energetically and respectfully discusses current events and their relevance from a biblical perspective.  An occasional book study is intermingled.  The CHAMPS enjoy fellowship outside of church periodically and are actively involved in a variety of missions within First Church, as well as in the Springdale community.


All ages of couples and singles seeking a deeper walk of faith through sharing life in a small group setting are welcome.  Study material consists of books or videos on various aspects of Christian faith and personal growth.  Through study, prayer, service, and sharing life’s journey together, FAITHBOUND seeks to find the spiritual depth that can transform personal, family, and church lives as disciples of Christ. 

GENESIS – Room N116

Study and fellowship are the hallmarks of this age 50 – 65 class. The group enjoys video series by authors such as Adam Hamilton, Philip Yancy, Max Lucado, and Ray Vander Laan.  GENESIS is supportive of 1st Youth’s annual Local Mission Project and sponsors a family at Christmas, as well as other outreach and mission support.

JOURNEYS – Room W215

Made up mostly of couples in their 30’s – 40’s with young children, JOURNEYS studies a variety of materials from books of the Bible to the work of contemporary religious authors.  Mission work is also a focus and the group helps at the Bread of Life food pantry the first Sunday of each month and provides the Saturday night meal for the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital in Rogers. 

OPEN DOOR – Room W217

As the name suggests, couples, singles, and all ages are welcome to be part of the OPEN DOOR class.  The study is centered on life lessons in a 4 – 6-week time frame involving video and lively class discussion.


This welcoming, caring class is made up of mostly retired senior couples and singles.  A different teacher leads the class each month and chooses the topic.

SEEKERS – Room W216

The goal of the Seekers is to continually search for information and answers concerning the Christian faith.  The curriculum is selected from relevant religious topics suggested by class members through leader-led discussion.  All ages are welcome.
