Why Attend Sunday School and Equipping Seminars?

Here at FPC, we see the vital role knowing about Jesus plays in truly knowing Jesus. Sunday mornings are a time where our church members come together to become better equipped in knowing Jesus. This occurs through our offering of Equipping Seminars. These are various classes that are offered throughout the fall and spring, on various topics, that will prepare our people to better love God, know self, and serve their context.  Various Sunday School classes (which meet year round) will be hosting these equipping seminars. For more information on the seminars being offered this fall, please read below. For more information in general, contact Kimberly Chassay, Discipleship Coordinator, at kchassay@fpchouston.org.

Get a Grip on the Bible  Sundays 9:40am | Fellowship Hall

This is a 10-week seminar that walks through the redemption story from creation to revelation, chronicling the themes and major events of biblical history. Get a Grip will help you to see how all of the teachings, stories and writings in the Bible written over hundreds of years ago tell one coherent story of how God works in the world. This class will be taught by Rev. Dr. Andrew Stepp. Register here


#Harvey: What just happened? Learning how to help my neighbors and myself  SUNDAYS 9:40AM | SOLARIUM

This 4-week seminar is for anyone in the church who has been affected by Hurricane Harvey, has had loved ones affected, or wants to learn how to best help their friends and community. Join us as LPC, Sarah Burkhart, Associate Pastor and Counselor, Bill Heston, and Children's Director Stacey Rockwell teach on a Biblical approach to dealing with stress, anxiety, children's coping mechanisms, and family strain all caused by Harvey. They will also share how we, as individuals and a church community, can best help those hurting around us. Register here. 


Alpha  Sundays 12:30pm | LC 181

The Alpha Course is a 6-week seminar where we eat together (free food!) and watch a 20-minute video that explores some of life's big questions from a Christian perspective. We will then gather in small group discussions to voice ANY question/objection/concern that comes to mind. Everyone is welcome whether skeptic, spiritual, non-religious, de-churched, post-churched, or religious. This course is for anyone who wants to learn in a community of diverse people in order to grapple with how Christian teaching helps or hinders our life experience. This seminar will be facilitated by Daniel Stidham. Register here. 

Oct 8 – Nov 26

Understanding Your APEST  SUNDAYS 9:30AM | SOLARIUM

You are invited to an 8-week seminar hosted by Life Together designed to help you identify who God has made you to be and how to live into that identity as a vital member of the Body of Christ. For those of you who desire to take the next step with APEST, this is it! Jonathan Ramsay, along with Pastors Rebecca and Chris Harrison, are going to lead you through the work of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd and Teacher. The goal of the class is to help you discover your five-fold identity and grow in your understanding of how to live into who you are, where you are. Together our five-fold gifts will move the city toward the Kingdom of God. We can't do it without you! Register here.


Center Church  Sundays 9:45am | Mini Gym

Using key concepts from Tim Keller's Center Church as the blueprint, this 6-week seminar will focus on the following: (1) How the Gospel, and specifically our Reformed (ECO) worldview, shapes our lives and witness, (2) How that witness intersects with Houston: the specific needs, communities, neighbors, people, and culture here, and (3) How we as a "sent" people in Houston have a unique calling to serve and advance the Kingdom of Heaven. This class will help integrate our understanding of doctrine, mission, and strategy, ultimately exposing the theological underpinnings of Vision 2020 and creating a space for the body of FPC to join the work of bringing our vision to fruition. This seminar will be hosted by the Intersections class. Register here.

Marriage Beginnings  Sundays 9:30am | LC267

For those planning to or recently wed

Marriage is a gift from God, and we place a high value on the importance and necessity of preparing for this relationship, before and after marriage.

The class is taught by members of FPC, pastors and family counseling professionals. The class facilitators are Alan and Claudia Stewart. Whether you are considering marriage, engaged, or have been married for only a few months or years, this class is beneficial to all as we work towards glorifying our Lord in the way we love our future or current spouse.
