What Does Forgiveness Look Like?: Bible Study Series
Wednesday, February 5-April 8, 2020

Lewis said, “Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have something to forgive.” Beginning February 5, Dr. Greg Ammons will teach the book of Philemon in a verse-by-verse study entitled, “What Does Forgiveness Look Like?” The study will meet each Wednesday at 6:15 p.m. in the Worship Center of the First Baptist Church of Garland and will examine how true forgiveness really looks.

Mountains: 8-Week Series
What do you do whenever you have a mountain in your life? We usually dread these rugged peaks. Have you ever considered that God may use mountains in powerful, positive ways in your life? On eight different occasions in the Gospels, we are told that Jesus encountered mountains. Senior Pastor Dr. Greg Ammons looks at all eight of these times from the life of Jesus to see how we deal with mountains of our own. Sometimes we climb them. Sometimes we cross them. Sometimes we move them. Fall 2019 series
