Every Sunday from 10:15 – 10:55 a.m. adults are invited to gather to study, discuss, and learn. Our topics range from studies of particular scripture, to topical classes, to growing in practicing our faith. Leaders will include pastors and members of the church with knowledge, skill, and faith to share. These adult courses are an opportunity for deeper and broader dialogue about our faith.
Life Groups are small groups of people committed to meeting regularly to grow together in their Christian faith. A typical Life Group meeting will include Bible study (based on the Sunday morning sermon), fellowship, and prayer. Put simply, it’s a time for friends to seek together how to apply God’s Word to their daily lives. There are currently over 20 Life Groups meeting weekly. For information about joining or forming a group, please contact our church office at 428-3439.
Companions in Christ
These evening gatherings happen throughout the year and focus on helping us discover together Christ’s presence in our lives. Each session includes a time of worship, contemplative prayer, learning, and deep sharing. Companions gatherings are not a class but really a time of “listening for the Spirit” as we read scripture, discuss our lives, and bring ourselves before God and each other. Topics include things like prayer, God’s grace, discernment, and others.
In addition to all our other offerings, we offer classes with various topics throughout the year. Recently we have studied Islam, the book of Galatians, and the various “streams” of Christian spirituality. Classes are taught by leader from within our church and guest speakers from outside the congregation. Stay tuned to the newsletter and Sunday announcements to see what is coming next!
Life Together Course
Life Together is a 7-week course offered generally twice a year that is geared towards bringing together people who want to grow with one another to become more fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ here in this community of Faith. The course will include a balance of group gatherings and individual spiritual practices. The application to everyday life will be intensely practical. We will explore key doctrines and disciplines of the Christian faith, both of which are essential for spiritual growth.
Have you found yourself recently interested in Jesus and how you can have a personal and vibrant relationship with him as Savior and Lord? Are you tired of feeling “stuck” or “stalled” in your Christian faith? Are you finding it difficult, if not impossible, to become the sort of person you sense God made you to become? Are you new (or maybe not so new) to this congregation and eager to connect at a deeper level with others in this faith community? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, we invite you to consider joining the next Life Together course. The course is taught by Pastor Jeff Chapman.
Presbyterian Women at Faith have strengthened Faith Presbyterian Church through service, charity and love, sharing their experiences as true believers in Jesus Christ and witnessing to the promise of God’s Kingdom. Missions and hands‐on assistance are our emphasis. Join the dynamic Bible Study at 10:00 A.M. preceding monthly meetings.
Bible Study Fellowship
Women’s Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) meets at Faith from September through May on Tuesday mornings and is open to all women. A children’s program for children two years through Kindergarten is held concurrently. For a brief overview of the organization, go to http://www.bsfinternational.org/.
Adult Discussion Group
Each year adults are invited to study a book or an author and meet once a month to discuss their reading. We generally meet the first Wednesday of the month from 2pm – 3pm. This year (2014) we are looking at the writings of C.S. Lewis.
Summer Lunchtime Book Study
Every Summer we take time to look a book of particular interest. You are invited to bring your lunch at noon each Wednesday in the summer to hear reflections from a gathering of brothers and sisters who are exploring along with you. It is a relaxed but engaging time.
Faith @ the Movies
For four Wednesdays in the middle of the summer, we dedicate the evening to watching movies! Selections include the mainstream and the offbeat, the funny and the profound. If you enjoy a midweek evening with a little popcorn, a good film, and some friends—then this time is for you!
