Fall Bible Studies

Adorned* by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth – led by Maria Rogner and Stacey Buher

Description: As we live out Christ’s beauty before a dying world, we become more and more adorned with the gospel—together. Titus 2 community helps women flourish and impact those around them in profound ways. Adorned connects your small group or mentoring relationship to God’s beautiful plan for discipleship.

Time: Tuesday Mornings from 10:00am-12:00pm starting September 14 (11 weeks)
Location: John Young Campus – WC 132/134
No Childcare Available

Being Transformed by Jesus – led by Shugie Collingsworth

Description: This nine-week study will define what it means to really know Jesus and the power of the gospel.  We will study God’s Word to confirm Who He is and what a difference He can make in each of our lives. You will be challenged to go beyond just knowing about Jesus and learn to walk in His presence and power every day.

Time: Wednesday Mornings from 9:30-11:30am starting October 6 (9 weeks)
Location: John Young Campus – Faith Hall 346
Childcare Reimbursal Available

No Other Gods* by Kelly Minter – led by Dee Woolford

Description: Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of loved ones, Instagrammable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you’re missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart’s ultimate treasure.

In this 8-session, revised and expanded study, learn to identify the functional gods you may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell. As you dethrone your modern-day idols, you’ll be set free for the deeper, more abundant life Jesus came to give you—discovering that Jesus can do what no other god can.

Time: Wednesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00pm starting October 13 (6 weeks)
Location: John Young Campus – Faith Hall 350
Limited Childcare Available

Anxious* by Scarlet Hiltibidal – led by Shawna Felton

Description: There’s plenty to worry about, and the world is full of faulty solutions for our anxieties. But true peace comes when we learn to hold God’s Word up to what worries us. There, we learn we can’t fix ourselves; we can’t protect ourselves. Instead, the Bible tells us we can rest, knowing that Jesus walked into the broken, sad, scary places to rescue us and love us. He is the One who fixes. His is the only protection that matters. Learn how we can practically take hold of the perfect peace that is only available through God as we dive deeply into His Word, embrace the practice of prayer, and live authentically in the support of our communities of faith.

Time: Wednesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00pm starting October 6 (8 weeks)
Location: John Young Campus – Faith Hall 372
Limited Childcare Available

Women’s Connect Dinners

Are you looking to connect with other women at First Orlando? Join us for a connect dinner in your area of town! This fall, they’re taking place between October 24-November 7 all over Central Florida. This is a great way to meet other women while you share a meal together. We hope you’ll join us!


Circle of Moms

We will be meeting in person beginning September 13th. Subject to change based on CDC guidelines.

Circle of Moms is a biblically-based ministry led by mentor moms. It is designed to nurture and encourage younger women in their roles as the wives and mothers God has purposed them to be. Women gather regularly for practical teaching of Biblical principles for the everyday issues faced by today’s wives and mothers, combined with up-close relationships with older women, and-heart-to-heart encouragement from other moms. They are refreshed and encouraged in their faith and hope in the powerful God who gave them their children.

Please contact Amy Newsome at for additional questions and more information.
