Romans 12: 2-4 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
FPC Transforms is our Adult Christian Education program for Sunday mornings. It seeks to equip all of our members, from college aged through our senior seniors, with quality Sunday morning classes that will be part of the transformation process as our church endeavors to, ‘make more people, more like Christ.’
Our Spring 1 FPC Transforms Courses is underway!
One of the advantages of our FPC Transforms model is that it allows us the flexibility to hold ‘All Church Classes’ when the need arises. We will be offering just such a session in our upcoming Spring 1 schedule as we take an important look at what it means to be ‘missional’ in our normal, every day, North Shore life. This will be especially important as we move towards our summer break and have more time to spend interacting with our friends, family and neighbors!
The Missional Church, Pastors Greg and Jon Conant.
We live in an increasingly post- Christian culture. More and more we find ourselves on the margins as less and less people have any intention of ever attending church. What used to work doesn’t work anymore and we need to adapt.” Tim Chester, Everyday Church. This all church Sunday school class is designed to help us think about being a church community on mission on the North Shore. We will explore how to effectively reach people in the context of everyday life and ministry. Taught by Pastor Greg and Jon Conant.
Summer Break 2018.
During July and August we take a break from FPC Transforms in order to allow our church community more flexibility in how they spend their Sundays. Invite friends to the beach, have a BBQ with your neighbors, but be intentional and missional as you share Jesus with others this summer.
