Christian Education Schedule
Christian Education @ FPC Fall 2019
Sunday School [9:45 - 10:40 am]
We are kicking off our exciting program year Sunday, August 18. There’s something for everyone! Childcare is available for babies and children kindergarten and younger for both services; children younger than 3 are invited to childcare as needed from 8:30 – noon every Sunday in the CE building.
All classes begin at 9:45.
Our children participate in Godly Play, an imaginative and spiritual approach that allows children to explore and articulate faith in ways that are meaningful and appropriate. The children may be picked up by parents no later than 10:40.
Ages 3 – Kindergarten – CE Room 210
Grades 1 – 6 – CE Room 217
Youth - This school year, 7th-12th graders will meet for Sunday School in the Southwest Room each week. We will also continue to build community alongside youth from other local churches through regular youth group gatherings and service opportunities. Confirmation will begin in January and go through Easter.
The Through the Bible Class will begin by exploring what it means to live in the Grace of God and perceive God’s Grace all around us. The fall quarter focuses on God’s gift of faith and how we respond to it personally and communally. The lessons from the Old and New Testaments illuminate how God’s grace affects the lives of all believers, as demonstrated by their obedience, gratitude, and holy living. The class meets in the chapel and uses Present Word Curriculum.
“How do we Speak of God” will be taught by Rev. Matthew Miller and Rev. Frank Yates. We will be using Cynthia Rigby's text entitled "Holding Faith" which is a practical theology for our times. We will be considering some of the main themes of what is called systematic theology, such as, “ What Did God Create us to be, and what went wrong?” and “Who is God making us into?” We hope you will come and learn about the many topics and issues confronting our faith. The class will meet in Fellowship Hall, 9:45 am
