Dr. Larry Bryars, Lead Pastor

Brandon Dasinger, Teaching Pastor

As we grow in faith, we also grow in love for one another. Knowing Jesus at a deeper level is life changing. It is a joy to know that you have a group of people to walk with you on your spiritual journey and to support you through the difficulties of life as well as to celebrate with you in the blessings. This is why we have made small groups a vital part of the Frazer experience. We want you to find God’s plan for your life and to be who God has called you to be. You can find this as you study God’s Word and build relationships in small groups. We cannot emphasize enough how important this is for your spiritual growth.

Small groups are essential to our faith journey because they are a means of God’s grace. They connect us to a faith family that will remind us of God’s love and grace in our lives and will challenge us to go deeper in our understanding of God’s love and grace. My guess is if you think about your own faith journey, you will immediately think about several people who have helped you along the way and you will think about God’s amazing grace.

Our Team is here to help you get “Connected.”

My life simply does not make sense apart from God’s presence and spirit and the people He has placed in my life. It is His grace that has saved me, guided me, and equipped me.

s, Blessings,

ward to continuing this faith journey together! I look forward God bless,

Psalm 119

The Good Book

Even the most mature believers face dark nights of the soul. During those times, God feels distant, His Word dry, & the vibrant intimacy we knew before seems absent leaving us wondering, “Where is the Lord in this?” In Psalm 119, Pastor Matt Chandler aims to introduce viewers to the words of King David who experienced similar seasons of life.

The Bible is a big book. Hundreds of characters & thousands of ideas parade across its pages from beginning to end. From the uninitiated to the very seasoned, readers of the Bible will always find something new to learn in The Good Book. Over the course of 8 sessions, pastors Deron Spoo & Kyle Idleman will visit the most salient themes about God in the Bible.

Encounters with Jesus

The Book of Ephesians

What is my purpose in life? Why is there so much wrong with our world? These are some of the big questions that everyone confronts in life. Keller knows that Jesus changed the life of every person he met in the Gospels. Encounters with Jesus focuses on several of these meetings & shows how the central events in Jesus’ life provide ways for us to encounter him.

The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Pastor & author J.D. Greear walks through the powerful words of Paul. In 9 sessions, J.D. digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse & challenges believers to live out the gospel.

The One Year Bible

The Books of the Bible

The One Year Bible makes reading through the Bible achievable with daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, & Proverbs & is today’s #1-selling daily reading Bible. The One Year Bible divides the entire text of the New International Version into 365 sections, so you can read through the entire Bible in one unforgettable year in as little as 15 minutes a day.

Community Bible Experience offers an engaging approach to Scripture called The Books of the Bible. Not a verse here or a chapter there, but whole books read in their original context. Read big—12 pages a day, 5 days a week. This is a series of four separate journeys through the Bible—the New Testament, the Covenant History, the Prophets, & the Writings.

A Firm Foundation This study is a useful tool for navigating present day challenges, as well as, pursuing the future promise for Methodists. These biblical & foundational principles have guided Methodist thought from the beginning of John Wesley’s counter cultural movement. Join a group this spring & explore, the Lordship of Christ, the Authority of Scripture, the Power of the Holy Spirit, the Promise of Sanctification, the Anchor of Purpose, the Dynamic of Discipleship & the Gift of the Global Church.

Sermon Series & church wide study begins April 8, 2018.
