Why Attend Sunday School?
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 worship Jesus, fellowship with their church family, and become better equipped in knowing Jesus This intentional equipping occurs through Sunday Schools. We have various classes offered that will prepare our people to better love God, know self, and serve their context. For more information, please read below or contact Kimberly Chassay, Discipleship Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
