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. Maybe you’re wondering if this is the time for you to explore membership at FPC? If so, we invite you to explore membership and the faith, purpose and foundations of our church with Pastors Jeremy Vaccaro and Lana Roberts. (Note: Also offered in a two-week format the afternoons of October 22 & 29.)
