In Pursuit of Wisdom
The goal of the Discipleship ministries at FPC is to encourage and equip adults to take the next step on their own road to Emmaus. Part of this journey involves cultivating a faith that seeks understanding through thoughtful study and reflection. Towards this end, we offer a number of opportunities in Christian education, including short-term courses, Bible studies, lectures, podcasts, and TED-style talks.
We believe that discipleship also involves nurturing one’s spiritual formation and sense of Christian community. Whether in the form of weekday small groups, men’s and women’s ministries, book clubs, or Sunday school classes, there are opportunities for you to join with others to engage in honest conversations about the joys and challenges of everyday faith.
Wherever you are on your journey of faith, we hope that you will take advantage of some of these opportunities for cultivating your own spiritual and theological growth.
This 6-week course seeks to understand the nature of the church today by exploring its history as well as the characteristics of the church in the twenty-first century. This course provides a basic introduction to the history of Christianity, the Reformed tradition, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and features of the global church today.
The class meets on Thursdays, January 23–February 27, 2020, 10:00–11:15 a.m. in Room B-111. Contact Chris Holmes to learn more.
We will continue the conversation started in October around race, racism, and reconciliation.
