First Presbyterian Church is committed to providing opportunities for spiritual growth, whether through classes or small groups. People coming together to read, study, and discuss the Word of God is vital to the life of a church.
Each Sunday and Wednesday, a variety of Bible study classes are offered for all age ranges. Small groups meet throughout the week, as well, and our youth are being mentored by adult volunteers. Connections are made through the Word of God.
The Intergenerational Bible Study class each Sunday morning is working through the Person of Jesus study by Paul Miller. On Friday, Sept 13, an introduction to the study was held. Participants ate, laughed, got to know one another, and explored the wonder of Jesus together.
“A little more than eight years ago I married my wife, Amanda, and we vowed to love one another and stay committed to each other for the rest of our lives,” says Brian Morgan, Director of Surrender Student Life Ministries. “But we still love going on date nights, and enjoying time re-learning one another. “
Brian shares that those in attendance at the Person of Jesus evening essentially did the same thing.
“We’ve married Jesus, but we still love going out on ‘date night’ with Him, recapturing how amazing He is, and reminding ourselves why we committed our lives to Him in the first place.”
These Friday night “date nights” with Jesus will continue to be held once every few months. Prayerfully consider if this is something you would like to be part of in the life of FPC.
ln the meantime, Brian and the Surrender Student Life Ministries would love for you to be involved in the Intergenerational Person of Jesus Sunday School class which meets each Sunday morning in the Youth Hall from 9:15-10:10 a.m.
Spiritual growth opportunities like the Person of Jesus study, the Agape class led by Pastor Zac McGowen, or the men’s groups led by Pastor Kenny Ellis are made possible through your tithes and offerings.
You should have already received a 2020 Commitment Card in the mail (if you haven’t, please let Elena Nicholas know, and she will provide one for you). You may make your commitment online , by returning your card in the mail, or by placing your card in the offering plate. There will be volunteers at the Stewardship Table in the Welcome Center on those Sundays to assist if you would like to make your commitment online.
Thank you for living generously.
