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.

"The Light Team" Women's Bible Study meets from the early fall to early spring on Mondays from 1:00-2:30pm in the Gathering Place. Women at FPC who are interested in becoming closer to God through Bible lessons from Christian speakers and involvement with one another through prayer and fellowship should join us. This is a time for reflection and discussion, not for homework or extra reading. We all understand that some sessions will be missed for travel, appointments, grandchildren, etc. This is not a problem. We end our weekly sessions with humor and treats.

FPC’s Adult Education Ministry is happy to introduce The Bethel Series, which takes you on an in-depth exploration of the Bible and brings you a deeper understanding of scripture.

The Bethel Bible Series is a study designed to illustrate how the Bible is inter-related, and how it flows, and to teach about significant concepts within the Bible. It is a wonderful way to study the Bible at a higher level than studies that are focused on a specific book or concept. To cover all the material promised, the Bethel Bible Series program requires two years to complete. The first year includes 20 lessons for the Old Testament, and the second year includes 20 lessons for the New Testament. If you value growth in a more intimate knowledge of the Bible, the Bethel Bible Series is designed for you.

The Bethel Bible Series Kickoff will take place on Saturday, October 13 at 8:30am, and will include breakfast and two Bethel lessons. If you are unsure about joining the Bethel study, we encourage you to come to the Kickoff to get a taste of what the study will be like. Please RSVP for the Kickoff by signing up in the Gathering Place, or contacting Lon Foree at (608) 335-3804.

FPC will be offering Bethel Bible Series classes beginning on Sunday, October 21. Classes will take place Sunday mornings between services (9:35-10:50) in the Fellowship Hall, and on Monday nights at 6:30pm in the Youth Space. Participants may choose which date they would like to attend. Sign-ups continue to be available in the Gathering Place.
