Fall Five

During the Fall Five Series, FPC staff and visiting speakers will offer several different educational offerings or “tracks” during the Sunday School hour for five consecutive weeks. Course offerings relate to the Bible, spirituality, mission, and more. This year, the Fall Five will begin on October 13, and the following educational offerings are planned:

“Beyond the Westminster Confession.”

For Southern Presbyterians (of a certain age), the church had two creeds and one Confession of Faith – the Westminster Confession plus its catechisms. With reunification in the 1980’s, the Book of Confessions was greatly expanded. Join us for an exploration of the historic expressions of faith that round out what Reformed Christians believe.

Taught by: Rob Sparks in the Library

Enneagram and Relationships

The Enneagram is an ancient tool used for spiritual growth and self-discovery. Join Rev. Jamie Butcher, certified teacher with Enneagram Georgia, for a five-week series on better understanding ourselves and others.

Taught by: Jamie Butcher in Room# B111

Five Myths on Mission

Each week, we will explore an oft-told myth about mission and how God is calling us into a fresh understanding of God’s work in the world and into ever new and exciting ways to work with God in building the peaceable kingdom, on earth as it is in heaven.

Taught by: Leigh Bonner and guest speakers in the Wirth Room

Myths on Mission Speakers

October 27, Ellen Sherby, Coordinator of Equipping for Mission Involvement for the national Presbyterian World Mission office in Louisville, KY speaks on the mission myth, “You have to have it all together.”

November 10, Dr. Arun Jones, Associate Professor of World Evangelism and Director of the Master of Theology Program at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, returns to close our series. He speaks on the mission myth, “It’s not our mission.”

If you are looking for an intimate setting and interactive style, three small groups meet on Sunday mornings for Bible and book study. For more information, contact jbutcher@firstpresatl.org

Paul and the Person

Paul is a complicated figure in early Christianity, and his writings can be difficult to understand sometimes. One of the more perplexing things about Paul concerns his view of humanity and the human person. In this study, we will study central passages and important themes to better understand how Paul thought about what it means to be human.

Taught by: Chris Holmes in Fifield Hall
