Sunday School Classes At FPC
Why Attend Sunday School?
Here at FPC, we see the vital role of 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 Catie Smith, Discipleship of Discipleship, at email@example.com.
Core Sunday School Classes:
Intersections (Inter-Generational Class)
9:40am | Singles & Married | All Ages | Mini-Gym
Intersections is a multi-generational Sunday School class with the goal of supporting FPC's Vision 2020.
Through class discussion and interaction, the Intersections class focuses on the study of the Bible and the mission of FPC to spread the Gospel throughout the city of Houston and around the world.
Basic Training In The Bible (Inter-Generational Class)
9:40am | Singles & Married | All Ages | Fellowship Hall **OVER THE SUMMER, BTTB WILL JOIN INTERSECTIONS IN THE MINI GYM
Have you ever wondered how to study the Bible? It can often feel like you are trying to understand a story from a completely different culture in a completely different language in a completely different era. That’s because you are!
Led by Pastor Andrew Stepp, we will dive deeper into God’s Word and learn how to read and interpret it faithfully. We will look at how to study books as a whole, analyze characters and themes, and even dig into some of the more bizarre and provocative stories.
The Basic Training in the Bible resource page is a great place to find collateral from the class. If you can’t gather with us at the designated time, we have created this web page to make the materials available, including audio recordings, PowerPoint presentations, and handouts.

Friends & Family Sunday School Class
(Will Join Cornerstone class in the Solarium over the summer)
9:40am | Parents of Youth | LC 283 | Every Sunday, except Holidays and Summer
Looking for fellowship with FPC families? This class is for you! Parents gather for coffee, fellowship and time in the Scriptures. There will always be Christ-centered biblical teaching.
We know that it’s tough to navigate life as a parent, especially when your kids are teenagers or young adults. The goal of this class is to listen to you, encourage you and inspire you, not only in your daily faith walk but in the journey of raising your children that honors the Lord Jesus in every way.
Our curriculum and format will change throughout the year, but we will always offer a variety of speakers and formats to encourage relationship growth in our parent community. Whether we address "hot topics” (issues facing families at the intersection of faith and culture), hear from the Youth Staff, or study an excerpt of Scripture, our hope is that as we all draw closer to the Lord and to our families, we will grow closer as friends in the process!
