In response to COVID-19 and out of concern for your health, all FPC experiences are online at this time. Until further notice, the church building is closed. Although we are not together in person, we will gather virtually to worship, care for and encourage one another, and to grow in faith together.
At First Presbyterian Church, we value the cultivation of our spirits, as one of the most important components of who we are as human beings. Spiritual Formation is a process and a journey through which we open our hearts to a deeper connection with God, and sharpen our attentiveness to Him. The practices and meaning of spiritual formation can be found in such disciplines as meditation, prayer, study, simplicity, service, confession, guidance, worship, and celebration. We are committed to providing opportunities for adults to discover, experience, and engage in deeper life-long learning of the Word of God in Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures, the unique theology of the Reformed tradition, and the relevance of faithful discipleship in today's complex world.
Adult Classes (Spiritual Formation)
You are invited to join us in classes or study groups on a variety of topics that are held throughout the year. All the adult spiritual formation classes strive to create space for individuals at different points in their faith journey. While we cannot physically gather at church, we invite you to continue pursuing spiritual formation in our virtual classes.
