Adult Enrichment provides opportunities for empty-nesters, retirees and mature adults to continue their Christian growth through learning, connecting and serving during new chapters of their lives. A series of faith-based travel tours, lectures, museum tours, trips to the theatre and other activities provide educational entertainment and fellowship opportunities.
"Empty Nesters" Mixer at Mo Ranch
Fri | July 15 | 8:45pm
Empty Nesters, Boomers and beyond are invited to come to a wine and cheese reception to meet our guest speaker Kyle Strobel. This reception is sponsored by the Adult Enrichment ministry of FPC that offers opportunities for faith-based travel tours, faith and culture studies and other opportunities to enrich Christian growth through learning experiences.
This year's Mo reception is hosted by Martha & David Barnes and Pluma & Brent Dorsey.
Study Tour to Italy
April 18-28, 2016
Hosted by Bill & Angie Heston, the tour will explore the formation of the Christian Church as it was shaped by the pre-Christian Roman Empire culture with visits to Pompeii and other ancient Roman sites. We will walk the Appian Way; have an exclusive night tour of the Vatican and conclude our trip visiting historic sites in Florence. See more details here.
Travel Study Tours
Trips with First Presbyterian Church members offer wonderful opportunities to build lasting friendships, be enriched by meaningful locations and discover insights into biblical and church history.
Culture, Fine Arts and Faith
The strategic location of FPC in the heart of the Museum District offers wonderful opportunities for members to explore some of the finest offerings of creative arts and enter into a dialogue of the role of their faith. This new series is becoming very popular with a wide range of adults.
Many opportunities are available for one-time volunteer service or ongoing volunteer service for Adults. Please contact the Missions office at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Caring office at email@example.com.
