Sunday Opportunities

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

31 Flavors – Is currently studying the Adam Hamilton book and DVD Christianity and World Religions.   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 Philip Yancey video series “The Jesus I Never Knew.”  Andrew Lloyd Webber cast him as a rock-n-roll rebel in a Broadway musical, many Christians see him as a handsome European-looking man, and social justice groups place him next to Ghandi in his defense of the downtrodden. “The Jesus I Never Knew” looks at who Jesus was, why he came, and what he left behind. Please join us for this study.
New Testament – The study guide book is the Great Course Program on the Old Testament presented by Professor Amy-Jill Levine.  The class discussion is led by Bob Senn. New members are welcome at any time since each days’ study stands alone for that day. This class meets in the Library.

Weekday Opportunities

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.

Christian Women’s Ministry (CWM)

Esther-Circle Christian Women’s Ministries (CWM) is an umbrella organization for all women’s ministries at FCC. The goal is to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, enrichment, education, and creative ministries to enable women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the Church of Jesus Christ. There are no set meeting times. Contact: Nancy Waites

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 at 256-337-5581.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer-Shawls The Prayer Shawl Ministry presents hand-made shawls to those in the congregation facing serious health problems or life-altering situations.  For other concerns (& those in the community), a prayer square is presented.  The shawls & squares are blessed in both worship services before presentation.  The hand crafters work on these gifts on their own time with the group meeting the third Monday of each month from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to discuss the ministry.
