Learning groups


Inquirer’s Class.
Are you interested in learning what FPC is all about? Would you like to know more about some of the distinctive beliefs that we hold dear, and where we sense the Lord is leading us as a church? Are you interested in FPC’s history, programs, life and witness? Are you interested in what it takes to become a member of FPC, should the Lord lead you to do so? Inquirer’s classes are scheduled on an individual basis with Dr. Maxwell. Once you have your questions and concerns addressed, we welcome you to join our church family.

Small Group Ministries at FPC. Small Group Ministries at FPC enjoy bi-monthly meetings focused on Bible study, prayer, and fellowship.  Small groups offer a safe community in which members can be themselves as they grow into a deeper relationship with the Lord and as they share their lives with other group members.  Being a member of a small group brings with it the responsibility of caring and sharing and making a commitment to be a faithful member of the group.  If you would like to be in a small group at FPC please contact the church office.

Our children are the future of our church.

Welcoming Children to the Lord’s Table. The last Sunday in September, Pastor Maxwell leads a class for Welcoming Children to the Lord’s Table. This program is for all children (grades 2 through 5) and their families to come together and understand the significance of Holy Communion. After the program, those who feel ready will be invited to join our congregation for communion on World Communion Sunday. Please contact the church office to register for this program.

Vacation Bible School. Every summer our church offers a weeklong opportunity for young people (kindergarten through grade 6), youth and adult volunteers to join together to learn about and experience Jesus Christ. This fast paced, fun-filled week is a great opportunity for our youth (entering grades 7 – 12) to flex their leadership muscles. Themes vary every year, but the enthusiasm and fun are consistent.
Children’s Music Programs. “Sing to him a new song; play skillfully and shout for joy.” (Psalm 33:3) There are many opportunities for our children do all these things in worship of our Lord. They are given opportunities to sing songs, play instruments in our worship service, celebrate the seasons of our faith, and make a joyful noise to our Lord. There is a special music time for ages Preschool through grade 3 before Sunday school. There are also opportunities throughout the year for all Sunday school classes to join in special seasonal programs. All ages come together to celebrate, worship, and experience together our Christian holidays and traditions.
