Welcome to Adults ministries. We long for every person to be found in Christ and to live out Christ’s call. We do that by working together to seek Christ, experience His love, and grow in His grace.

Exploring Membership @ FPC
October 14 - November 18: The Hub
With Rev. Jeremy Vaccaro
We believe church membership is an important step in a lifelong process of growing as a disciple of Jesus. Membership means participating in what God is doing among this community of faith: worshiping, growing, and serving others, all for God’s glory. Explore membership and the faith, purpose and foundations of our church.
November 11 and November 18: The Commons
With Jamie Franklin
Together we will engage in dialogue as Christians, holding news stories in one hand while holding our Bible in the other.
November 25-December 16: The Commons
With Dr. Steve Varvis
The prophets wrote of the coming Messiah hundreds of years before Jesus came to earth. In this four week series, we will engage Old Testament prophecies of the coming Messiah and how they were fulfilled in Jesus.
Discipleship Group Primer
This Sunday through December 16: The Fellowship Hall
With Pastor Chris Popadich and Diane Vaccaro
All of us want to grow in Christ with others, but finding the time can be very difficult. This class aims to eliminate that stress by offering Discipleship Groups for men and women during the Adult Education hour. Experience our emerging discipleship strategy.
Bible Study: The Book of John
This Sunday through December 23: The Corner
With The Cadre of Retired Pastors
Join our retired Presbyterian pastors as they continue an in-depth study of the book of John. 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. Be a man of God at FPC.

We're so glad you're checking into Women's Ministries at FPC. Whether you're interested in a weekly study, a women's retreat or conference, or a whole-church study, we aim to provide growth, fellowship and discipleship opportunities for all women.
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.
