Education


At FPC, we seek to grow in our faith through a variety of educational opportunities on Sunday morning as well as other times of the week. We strive to help our members and friends of all ages to ask questions and seek God through a variety of classes, studies, and fellowship groups.


Children's Education

Children are invited to go to an education time during the second half of worship after the scripture reading and children's message. The class follows the same scripture that is read in worship with discussion and activities to help the children understanding God's Word at their own level.

There are also occasional special events or activities for children, such as: the Christmas Program and Vacation Bible School, as well as opportunities for singing with the choir or special service projects.

Mark your calendars! Our 2017 Vacation Bible School, "Singing Stories" will be held June 15th from 8am-4pm. 


Youth Education

Youth are welcome to join in the children's education time on Sundays and often participate or help out. We also have youth group activities for those in grades 7-12. Youth meet for a variety of activities as schedules allow.

Adult Education

Adult Education is held most Sundays following worship from 11:15-Noon. A variety of faith-building topics, speakers, mission and study opportunities will be offered. We invite a number of guest speakers each year to teach us about mission needs and opportunities in our local and global community, and we seek to offer mission support (whether in dollars or through volunteer service or in-kind donations, such as care packages for people served by these organizations) in return. Supervision for youth will be offered during the Adult Education time.


Adult Bible Studies

There are two adult Bible Studies offered at FPC:
