Classes and Studies
Rather than just providing information, our classes and programs create experiences that engage and transform our hearts and actions. Time together as a community nurtures us personally and encourages us to pour out the love of Christ to all.
We offer classes that focus on scripture, theology, and/or discipleship. Classes resume September 10th at 9:45am and will be available in-person at our church or online through Zoom.
You can find a full list of classes, Bible studies, and small groups below.

The Bible Class
Each week this class features a scripture-based lesson to enrich biblical understanding and a discussion to facilitate connection to the scripture and each other. Together, we hope to help make the Bible accessible and applicable to our daily lives. This class is designed for those in their early 20s to mid 40s, but all are welcome.
The Bible Class will join the Passages class in S203 and over Zoom through December 3. It will resume January 7, 2024 in P206.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
Resumes September 12th.
Inspired by writers such as Richard Rohr, Amy-Jill Levine, Barbara Brown Taylor, Greg Boyle, and Jonathan Sacks, this group seeks a profound awareness of God’s presence and revelation in Jesus Christ that leads us to greater compassion for others. Book topics include scriptural study, theology, ethical living, and spirituality. All are welcome.
Thursday Morning Men’s Bible Study
Resumes September 21st.
This is a Bible study in the purest sense of that word. Our primary focus and the question that guides our scriptural reading is how a particular passage shapes our daily living. New participants are always welcome.
Parents of Young Children
A Bible study designed to work around the schedule and demands of parenthood. This group meets via Zoom after most children’s bedtimes. Topics include the study of scripture, open discussion of theological topics, and personal faith in parenting.
FPC Dads Connect
This informal fellowship group is for fathers of children ages birth to fifth grade. Organized and led by dads, Mark Caldwell and Wilson McCrory, the group meets periodically at various locations around town. To request more information about the group and upcoming events, click here.
