…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.
Sunday Morning Bible Exploration for Adults - What is Heaven like? What kind of body will we have? Will heaven be boring? Explore the answers to these questions and others, in a safe and welcoming environment with other adults. The DVD series "Revealing the Mysteries of Heaven" will explore a new question each week between worship services on Sundays 9:50-10:35am, in the Lower Level, Room 102. No need to register ahead of time, all are welcome.
"The Light Team" Women's Bible Study meets regularly 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. We will be starting a six-week session on Monday, September 25, with a DVD by Elizabeth George: Loving God with All Your Mind. If you’ve struggled with worry, frustration, or discouragement (haven’t we all?)...if you sometimes wonder if God knows what He’s doing...Elizabeth George helps you understand. Centering your life around God’s truth will help you put your love for Him into action. And as your thinking changes, your life will too. 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. So, please join us for meaningful moments with your Christian sisters. If you have any questions, please contact Lynda Bennin.
The Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study Group welcomes women of all ages and walks of life! This is an inter-denominational group that meets during the school year Wednesday mornings from 8:30-10:00am in the Gathering Space. The first meeting for 2017 is on September 13. This fall we will begin Lisa Harper's Bible Study - "Malachi: A Love That Never Lets Go." In this 8 session study, Lisa Harper focuses on God’s mercy. On our worst day, God doesn’t walk away from us. And His love for us is not determined by our performance. No matter how many times we mess up, God loves (and never leaves) broken people. “I the LORD do not change” Malachi 3:6. Don't panic... the homework is not overwhelming and the discussion each week will be shortened so as to have plenty of time to watch the video. Cost for a book is $15. Questions? Contact Beth Stellmacher at bstellmacher (at) tds (dot) net.
The "Beth Moore" Bible Study Group meets regularly on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm in the Gathering Space on the first floor. A new six-week study called The Quest starts on September 21, 2017. There is no Quest without questions - The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation. There is a workbook that has some daily homework and accompanies the weekly video sessions. All are welcome!
The 807 Group for men meets Saturday mornings at 8:07am at Spring Garden Restaurant in Waunakee. This men’s Ecumenical group meets weekly for study and fellowship.
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. Please contact Jeff Quinto through the church office (608) 849-4625 for more information.
