Adult Discipleship

Enroll… Attend… GROW!

Our faith formation is a life time journey.

At FPC, our goal is to equip all students — children, youth and adults — to go out into the world to make and mold disciples for Jesus Christ. Join the journey, making friends along the way, discovering new truths about God and yourself, and growing in discipleship!

All classes are open and you are invited to join any time.
