Small Groups and Classes

Small Groups

Since each of us is moving on a continuum of faith – from curious and cautious to totally in love with our Creator and the new life given through Christ – there are different small groups to meet different needs.  The main question to ask is: what type of small group would motivate me to rearrange my schedule?

Do you need:

  • Encouragement from others who are in a similar life stage?
  • Deeper Christian friendships that provide accountability?
  • Support through a life transition or difficult season of life?
  • People who will encourage you to live out your faith at work?
  • A group with whom to pray and play?

To find a small group that is right for you, call our church office to arrange a connection conversation to help you find a great small group fit, (970) 482-6107.

Gifted in Leadership?  Small group leader positions are open to all church members who have the gift of leadership and a passion for serving as a small group facilitator. If this is a place where you’d like to serve, please contact Mary Krings, Center Leader for Discipleship and Spiritual Formation.

 

Classes

First Presbyterian Church is committed to cultivating a Christ-centered community in which we come together to better know God's truth and show God's love. We are committed to providing opportunities for adults of all ages to discover and experience deeper heart and mind knowledge of the Word of God in Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures and the unique theology of the Reformed tradition, and the relevance of faithful discipleship in today's complex world. We hope that you will feel welcome in our midst and join a class that will help you discover and connect more with God and new friends.

Sunday Mornings

  • Contemporary Champions of our Christian Faith
    Leaders: Drs. Michael and Nancy Smith
    In these chaotic days, whom do you turn to for Christian inspiration and learning?  This interactive class will offer opportunities for you to be inspired by Christians such as Maya Angelou, Craig Barnes, and several others, who speak from both head and heart and have served Christ in remarkable ways.

  • Prayers of the Apostle Paul from the Epistles
    Leader: Rhonda Blinne
    Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul’s writings were his letters to the various churches that he had either planted or intended to visit during his ministry. Although Paul’s prayers were penned over 20 centuries ago, their value for spiritual instruction to the Christian Church throughout the ages has never ceased.  This interactive study will include a selection of Paul’s prayers contained in his letters. Note:  This class will occur during the first five-week session, September 17–October 15.

  • Christian Ethics
    Leader: Rev. Ron Sisk
    Join Rev. Sisk in an exploration of various ethical issues facing Christians today. Note: This class will occur during the second five-week session, October 22–November 19.
