In our commitment to deepen our faith by deepening our understanding of God’s word, we offer various levels of the “Disciple” curricula each year. Students in these classes commit to approximately thirty-four weeks of intensive Bible study and meet weekly for discussion sessions with a facilitator. Please check with the church office for information on when the next round of classes will begin.
At FPC, Saline we believe life-long learning is vital to the spiritual journey of each member. Therefore, we offer two adult learning opportunities during the education hour, which begins at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. Both Adult classes meet on the lower level of Genesis House, at the corner of Hall St. & McKay.
Our Adult Forum is a discussion-based learning experience, facilitated by various members of the congregation. Adult Forum offers a wide range of topics, which are of concern to our immediate and our global communities. Discussions can be based on books, DVDs, video clips, art work, etc. Adult Forum meets in the front room on the lower level of Genesis House. We welcome you to share and build your faith with us.
Our Adult Bible Study uses the curriculum, “The Present Word,” and is facilitated by Dr. Carter Bishop. The study books (available in the church library) include daily devotional readings to prepare students throughout the week before each lesson is concluded. The Adult Bible Study class meets in the back room on the lower level of Genesis House. We welcome you to learn and grow in faith with us.
Teen Forum, for students in 9th – 12th grades, meets at 9:30 on Sunday Mornings on the upper level of Genesis House, which is located on the corner of Hall St. & McKay (diagonally across the street from the main church building). Like our Adult Forum, Teen Forum uses a variety of curricula to engage our teens in a discussion-based learning experience. Our teens also have the opportunity to participate in an annual mission trip, and they gather together for a variety of worship and fellowship activities. Check out the “What’s Happening Now and on the Horizon” tab for details on upcoming events.
Our 6th – 8th Graders chose to name themselves with the acronym P.R.I.S.M. (People Rejoicing In the Savior’s Message). They meet with a lead teacher and a shepherd on Sunday mornings at 9:30 at the Summit House on Hall Street (directly across from the main church building). Our PRISM youth engage in a number of worship and fellowship activities throughout the year. Check out the “What’s Happening Now and on the Horizon” tab for details on upcoming events.
Youth education classes are offered to children from three years of age through the 5th grade. At 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, we meet together in the music room (lower level of the main building) to sing and pray before separating into smaller groups for age appropriate study time. Each of our classrooms is staffed by one teacher and one adult shepherd. We use the We Believe curriculum, developed for the Presbyterian Church. It follows the three ways in which Presbyterians know and serve God; with our minds (study), with our hearts (prayer and worship); and with our hands (service).
