Adults

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Small groups are an integral part of our church. Every week you’ll find people gathering in various places to do life together. As groups meet they are committed to the 7 Core Practices of Discipleship.
These 7 Core Practices equip us to be disciples who make disciples for Jesus! People are welcome to join a group at any time.

Adult Ministries

Sunday School

10:00am  - 11:00am

We offer many options for educational opportunities for adults on Sunday mornings. Whether you're interested in a certain topic of study, a specific age group or diving in deep to a particular book of the Bible, we have many choices for adult classes. These classes are always open to newcomers.

Wednesday Nights

Meal: 5:00pm - 6:00pm       Classes: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Wednesday nights are a great time to re-charge during the week by joining together for the Gathering meal, then heading off to either a class or a small group.  Chidcare is provided, and classes for every age (kids, students, and adults) are available.

Micro-Groups

Various Times & Locations

Our small groups follow the 7 Core Practices and meet in all different kinds of locations, times, and demographics. Some small groups are all women, some are all men, some meet weekly, and some meet seasonally. Newcomers are always welcome!

Women's Fall Bible Study

Expand Your Faith; Experience God’s Fire

Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire - the same kind you will need in order to remain steadfast in current culture. In this 7-week Bible study, prepare to: Acquire a backbone of boldness that can stand firm, even when standing alone; Anticipate God’s faithful guidance and provision at each stage of your journey; Welcome stillness, obscurity, and hardships as vital training for the tasks ahead; Seize opportunities to encourage others off the fence of spiritual indifference; and Aspire to a willing, consecrated life that invites the fire of God’s Spirit.
Join trusted Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer for a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall.

YOUNG MOTHERS BIBLE STUDY

The Women’s Ministry is offering an additional option to their fall Bible-study lineup, beyond the forthcoming "Elijah" study.
"Twelve Women of the Bible: Life Changing Stories for Women Today" is a time-abbreviated study with young mothers in mind. The video and study is by well-published Christian author Lysa Terkeurst and will be facilitated by FPC's Carol Hartzog.
It is being offered at 8 p.m. Mondays on Zoom – after the children have (hopefully!) settled. It will follow a seven-week schedule  --  Sept. 13-Nov. 1. Attend as you are able.
The total time commitment is one hour, which includes a 15-20 min video and discussion, all in the comfort of your home, and maybe even while you fold clothes! We all understand.
Come to be washed in Holy-Spirit learning. Your children are learning every day. Why not you? You get to meet other young moms and there's no homework chores. You can't beat that.
To register and for the Zoom ID, please contact Jamie Mullings at [email protected] There is no pressure if you don't get registered, just join the Zoom.
