Adult Ministries and Groups
Our faith journey never ends, so at FPC you will find a vast number of ways to learn about God, be challenged in your journey and find a home where questions are welcome. Our opportunities change often, so check the most recent newsletter for what’s being offered.
Women of Faith: This group is open to all women. The only requirement is a desire to continue your faith journey. We meet from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. every Monday morning in the Library (next to the church office). We discuss a variety of spiritual studies. 
Men’s Breakfast: Join a few men for coffee, breakfast and conversation on Tuesday mornings at Scrambler Marie’s. Scripture is typically discussed and reflection ensues. Any are welcome to join at any time.
Kairos Book Study: This  group reads a book a month, learning about faith in the 21st century, reflecting on the purpose of the church, role of church in society and what it means to be a disciple today.
Sunday mornings
Fellowship Hall Adult Education Seminars: Designed to provide opportunities for growth in Christian discipleship, we strive to address topics that are interesting and relevant with a balanced emphasis on Scripture, Presbyterian heritage, community, mission and outreach, and living as a Christian in today’s world. Past speakers have been from a variety of non-profits around the area, the mayor, sheriff and other civic leaders. After worship on Sunday, April 25, Anita Doseck, a member of our congregation, will lead a discussion of the book “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo. The seminar takes place in Fellowship Hall at 10:30 a.m. after Sunday worship..
Character Builders: The Character Builders class began in 1920. Originally a men’s only class, the group has evolved through the years into an adult Bible study class for men & women high school age and older. The class meets in Room 209-210 following the traditional worship service.
The class uses The Present Word study book that introduces a new three month study each season (winter, spring, summer and fall). Each study follows a topic which is broken into monthly study units using various Scripture references.
The Present Word lesson topic is “The Lord Loves Justice”. The Background Scripture is Isaiah 61:8-62:7. Here we will find the Israelite nation retuned from its captivity in Babylon but finding many difficulties back in their homeland. They are reminded of God’s eternal love and their special covenantal relationship with God which is compared to the vows taken between a couple in marriage. Cora Kerr will be our discussion leader.
The class is always open. There’s a chair, a mug and a study book waiting for you! Please join in whenever you are free to. The atmosphere is that of caring fellowship, light refreshments and relevant lessons led by the Pastors and participants and sparked with lots of lively discussion. This class is open to anyone eighth grade and older. Please join in ANYTIME.
Prayer ministry
Weekly Lenten prayer service: There will be a prayer service each Wednesday during Lent that will stream live online via Zoom at 6 p.m. beginning February 24.Our Lenten theme this year, “Again & Again,” will help us to connect the traditional emphases of Lent with our messy, daily lives. In the same spirit, our Wednesday evening Lenten Prayer services will focus on concrete items—bread, cross, coins, shoes and oil—and allow these common, familiar objects to open us to God’s presence with us in the middle of our ordinary, untidy lives. Please join us as we pray and seek God’s extraordinary grace in our ordinary lives, again and again. Contact Bill Treadway for more information.
