Sunday Education Hour

Invest this hour in your spiritual growth Sunday mornings. The Community Growth Ministry Team invites you to explore the August - December class offerings. We've worked hard to provide opportunities for you to connect with one another, with the Word of God and with what God is doing in our midst. 

Sept 10 - Oct 29: The Long-Expected Messiah, The Corner

Focusing on the existing expectations among Jews at the end of the first century BC (just before Jesus was born), Dr. Brian Schultz will guide us as we survey Old Testament and intertestamental history around the “Long-Expected Messiah”. Less “devotional” in nature, this class will provide background to better understand the New Testament. 

Note: Reformation Sunday October 29 we will meet in The Fellowship Hall.

Oct 1 - Nov 5: Membership Class, The Hub

At FPC, we believe church membership is an important step in a lifelong process of growing as a disciple of Jesus. Membership means participating in what God is doing among this community of faith: worshiping, growing, and serving others, all for God’s glory. This class is exploring membership at FPC, and the faith, purpose, and foundations of our church with Pastors Jeremy Vaccaro and Lana Roberts. Reformation Sunday October 29 Membership Class will meet in the Conference Room.

(Note: Also offered in a two-week format the afternoons of October 22 & 29 in The Commons. To register go to MyFPC/Registration Events or contact Ataloa in the church office.)
