Fellowship Meal & Sunday School

“Fellowship” comes from the original Greek term found in the Bible, “koinonia”. The word means “partnership, sharing and participation together”. Fellowship is crucial to the life of Christians, and it is a highlight of life at GfBC Conroe. During the week, many of us are somewhat scattered geographically, and Sundays are a great time to encourage one another in the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

Fellowship has two main components: sharing Life together and sharing the Truth together.

Each week we enjoy a fellowship meal together. As we gather for the day, you will see members and repeat guests bringing in covered dishes and crock pots, both homemade and store-bought. We’re not picky! This is an excellent opportunity to get to know each other in a casual environment, to enjoy the children playing together, to discuss the sermon and other things of God, and to encourage each other in the ordinary affairs of life from a Biblical perspective.

Immediately following the Fellowship Meal, we move back to the auditorium for a more deliberate time of fellowship, as we study in a laid back manner the Word of God and the the application of His Word to our everyday lives. Our specific topic varies from week to week, providing a variety of topics for study and discussion.

The weekly schedule is as follows:

1st & 3rd weeks of the month we are studying together our Confession of Faith, drawing out the teaching of the Scriptures in a systematic way. The emphasis here is to study the content of the Scriptures in an orderly way, along with helpful discussion of how we apply the Truth of God’s Word to our live and to our world.

On the 2nd week of each month we are studying John Bunyan’s classic work, Pilgrim’s Progress. This famous allegory is the second most popular work in the English language, next to the Bible. In this study, we are led to deep insight of our Christian journey by discussing the characters in Bunyan’s famous work that represent our own challenges, successes and burdens of the Christian life.

On the 4th week of each month we study through a book together on a specific topic relevant to our Christian witness. Presently, we are reading and studying What is the Mission of the Church?, by Kevin DeYoung and Greg Gilbert. This
book guides us carefully through the Scriptures to understand specifically what God intends His church to prioritize. This is a study that challenges some of the popular – but errant – notions that are pervasive in modern evangelicalism.
