The Book of Acts
This study will continue @ 8:30 am during the summer in The Commons.
Join our retired Presbyterian pastors as they continue an in-depth Bible study of the Book of Acts. Consisting of teaching, personal study, discussion, and application of God’s Word, this class will be led by a different retired pastor each week. Bring your Bible and questions.
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.

WoCo 2019 - Mark Your Calendars
Ladies, you won't want to miss this year's Women's Conference happening October 18-19. WoCo 2019, The Lord Has Done This, will feature Pastor Rici Skei, talented speaker, gifted worshiper and God-called connector of people with people and people with God. Rici has a strong mission to prepare the way for the Lord and bring reconciliation to the body of Christ through musical worship and the preached Word.
Women leaders from On Ramps Covenant Church in downtown Fresno are partnering with the First Presbyterian Church WoCo Team to develop an exciting and meaningful conference experience for all in attendance.
Come share in worship and actively connect with God and others as we experience in a fresh way what The Lord Has Done!
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.
Contact Pastor Chris Popadich to discuss next steps for an FPC GO Team.
