“Let the wise also hear and gain in learning, and the discerning acquire skill...” Proverbs 1:5

 

Through study of the Bible and other writings and through appreciation of art we prepare ourselves to live life so as to have a positive effect on ourselves, our families, communities, and the world. By conducting these studies within our faith community we also share experiences of life and learn from each other as well.

 

Adult Education

Adult Christian Education is a spiritual discipline for those who seek to love God with their whole mind (Mark 12:30).  Series are designed to shore up one’s Biblical knowledge while expanding one’s interpretation of the material.  We draw on current events, classic Christian theology, literature and the arts to enrich our discussions, and participants bring their own, particular experiences of God to the table. Several programs operate on a weekly basis; others are offered as limited series.  Everyone at FPC is encouraged to take advantage of these groups, either as an ongoing spiritual discipline, or else seasonally. Check out the latest opportunities in Adult Education.

Sunday School

Children are grouped by grade: Kindergarten and 1st Grade; 2nd-4th Grade; and 5th-7th Grade. Children are welcomed in the gymnasium for Sunday School after the Passing of the Peace in the 11:00 o’clock service. They can be met again immediately after worship near the gymnasium. Sunday School is offered  late September through late June. All children are encouraged and welcome to attend.

Sunday 10:00 AM
Our 10:00 AM discussions will center around our perceptions of the afterlife and how these beliefs are formulated and shaped through our exposure to Scripture, the world of art, literature, and personal witness. Perhaps our interior sense of the afterlife stands at odds with everything to which we have been exposed. Perhaps we are deeply conflicted about accepted perceptions of "heaven" or "paradise." Our conversations will grow out of Easter and the many "Holy Ghost stories" that attended this singular event, including the story of the Road to Emmaus, along with the many other manifestations of Jesus, following the Crucifixion. Is it therefore inappropriate to suggest that the Resurrection is also a story about grief, trauma, and a pathway to acceptance? What are our personal experiences with the afterlife? And what does that word mean to us? Join Elder Erik Brogger (who is just as confused about all this as you may be) in the Thurman Library on Sunday mornings for this lay discussion of text and self.

We welcome children grades K-7th every Sunday following passing of the peace. Children’s Choir music will find it’s home in our Sunday School hour. This year our weekly adventures through the Bible will use the Deep Blue Kids curriculum (7th graders are encouraged to try out both Sunday School and The Parables Project to choose the program that fits them best!)
