For Use in Your Home This Sunday there are many online Bible studies available through RightNow Media that you and your family can utilize to continue together strongly in God's Word during these times.
At FPC we take Men seriously. Discipleship (D-Groups), fun "men-sized" fellowship (around a barbecue, a ballgame or a service project), mission trips and informal gatherings are just some of the ways we grow men into the image of The Man: Jesus. Experience what it means to be a real man. FPC Men, Better Together in Christ.

Come Away: An Invitation to Prayer & Worship for Women
Jesus said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
An early Saturday morning, weekly time of fellowship, prayer and worship is your response to this invitation of Jesus to His disciples. Facilitated by Kristen S, this fall women's group will be in person, so space is limited. Register on MyFPC. Find out details here.

GO Teams are to a particular people in real community with shared commitment for the purpose of growing disciples.
To a Particular People: This allows us to do the intentional work of building sustainable relationships with those outside our church.
In Real Community: We are better together. Jesus sent his disciples out 2 by 2 in Luke 10, Acts 4:32, Romans 12:3-8, Hebrews 10:24-25. We are better on mission together, better as disciples together.
With Shared Commitment: Teams function best when they are confident their teammates are fully committed, and when they know they can count on each one being present.
For Growing Disciples: This is a lifelong process of leading people to increasingly submit all of life to the empowering presence and lordship of Jesus Christ.
How do we GO?
Go Pray Together: Before we go, we preemptively pray together. There is an ever-present culture of prayer in and among a GO Team because they believe for anything to happen. It is up to God. They have a shared vision and trust that God's timing, direction, and door-opening action are critical to ministry success.
Go Serve Together: We go with servant hearts. Teammates are looking outwards to the needs of others, prayerfully seeking practical ways to serve both those on their team as well as those in their mission field.
Go Disciple Together: There is an ever-present desire in all GO Team members to grow in submitting their lives to the lordship of Jesus Christ through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit and inviting others to do likewise. Group members intentionally spend time helping each other grow in Christ and live according to their Gospel identity. GO Teams also focus on helping others come to faith in Jesus and grow as disciples of Jesus.
Eat Together: When we go, it makes us hungry. GO Team members share life together: sharing meals together, studying the Word, celebrating joys and listening to each other’s stories, offering words of blessing and playing together, too. This is life in a GO Team in which each member from infant to centenarian is valued and vital.
