adult growth
…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith… Heb 12:1,2

At FPC we are dedicated to learning about and understanding our faith. The more we know about the path we travel, the better we know the One who travels with us, the more richly satisfying the journey. We provide opportunities for adults to grow through Bible Studies, adult Sunday School opportunities, Lenten programs, and special presentations throughout the year.

FIRST FORUM - First Forum is back! First Forum meets on the first Sunday of each month between services downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
