Spiritual Formation

Adult 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 Morning

10:00–11:00 a.m.

  • Lost and Found—A Lenten Study
    Facilitators:  Mary Fran Asmus, Dr. Martha Hargraves,
    Drs. Claibourne and Madgetta Dungy
    In our lives of faith, there are many times when we feel like we have lost something important—when we have lost hope, lost faith, lost relationships, lost perspective, lost priorities, lost opportunities, lost health, etc. During the season of Lent, we will dive into stories in Luke in which Jesus explores these places of loss and sheds light on how we can be found again, discover new insights and inspirations for our lives, and help others find their way, too. This class will use the 2020 Lenten Study Guide which offers six devotional lessons following the passages from Luke’s Gospel that will also be used in worship and sermons each Sunday during Lent.

    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.
