Happenings

New Sunday Morning Adult Education Opportunities

Beginning October 14, 10:00 am

Young Families Class – meets in S201, "Six Themes in Matthew Everyone Should Know" – led by Dan Holloway. This study focuses on Jesus as Messiah as a beginning point for considering Matthew’s perspective of who his Gospel is about as it portrays the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.

Serendipity Class – meets in S203, "Reformed Spirituality" - Reformed Christians are often suspicious of anything “spiritual.” Yet spirituality and spiritual discipline were essential components of the reform movement. Just what is Reformed spirituality, and how should we live spiritual lives as Reformed Christians?

Contemporary Critical Issues (CCI) Class – meets in S205, "Isaiah" – a Kerygma Study. This study allows us to see and hear the word of God through faithful witness of this prophet as he reveals, with reverence and compassion, what God would say to us.

LIFE – Living in Faith Everyday – meets in S212, "Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World"– by Max Lucado. Are you familiar with the message of Philippians 4:4-8? This study will show how we can be anxious for nothing and discover true peace from God that surpasses human understanding.

50/50 Garage Sale

October 20th, FLPC parking lot

Want to make some money for you and the church? Well, then clean out those closets and participate in the 50/ 50 Garage sale on October 20th.  On that Saturday FLPC's Service & Benevolence committee will set up a table in the church Fellowship Hall for members of the church to sell their wares. The committee will promote and provide space for the garage sale. All you need to do is display, sell, split the proceeds 50/ 50 with the church, and then take home any items not sold.
