Sunday Opportunities

Sunday School Classes that meet from 9:15am to 10:15am every Sunday

31 Flavors – is currently studying the Ray VanderLann series, A CLASH OF KINGDOMS, about Paul’s ministry. This class meets in the Garden Room.
Bethany – The class is studying Biblical words and their meanings. This class meets in the Joyce Jones Parlor.
Growing Christians – Meets downstairs in Room 209. This diverse group is currently studying the Professor David Brakke’s video series “The Apocryphal Jesus.” Much of what we know about Jesus today actually comes from apocryphal sources rather than the Bible. From forged letters to recently discovered gospels, this series explores the stories and ideas that shaped the foundations of early Christian thought—and continue to influence Christianity today. Please join is for this fascinating historical study.
New Testament – Meets in the library and is using a DVD on the Sacred Texts of the World by Professor Grant Hardy. This study started with Hinduism and will proceed through the most important religious traditions in the world. This will offer us a window into a new world of ideas and practice. The value of mutual understanding in this shrinking world can not be overstated. Class discussion is led by Bob Senn. New members are welcome to join, especially when we start each new religion. The DVD can be borrowed for home viewing to catchup on missed lessons.

Lunch/Supper Clubs

Supper Club2 croppedFCC has several groups of 10-12 adults who meet monthly for good food and conversation. Each group has a coordinator and decides whether it will meet in homes or restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Join us, and experience new restaurant adventures or home-cooked meals – potluck, cookout, wine and cheese tasting, finger foods, brunch, soup supper, picnic – anything goes! This is a great way to spend quality time with a few friends from church.  Contact:  Mary Ann Anderson

Men’s Bible Study Group

We are a diverse group with different backgrounds and are seeking to learn more about what God’s plan is for us in the world. We meet once a week on Wednesday at 6 P.M. and all are welcome.  We use study guides that are usually provided free of charge.  We agree to keep our discussions confidential.  What’s said here, stays here.  If we disagree, we disagree in God’s Love.  We respect each other’s opinions and there are no questions that are not welcome.  We are all on a faith journey together and we are trying to stay on the path and learn about God’s word and God’s plan for us, our family and our congregations at large. We invite you to come and join us. Let’s journey together, one step at a time. Contact:  Monty Love.
