I'm New PARKING

If you are searching for meaning and purpose as this pandemic continues, join our whole church in turning to God's Word to seek direction. If you need hope, community, or guidance, our special August discipleship journey will show us how God has used change and challenges to call His people into His purposes throughout the Bible. 

Rev. Dr. Jim Singleton, Associate Professor of Pastoral Leadership and Evangelism at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, has prepared a weekly 15-20 minute teaching on the Bible specifically for FPC Houston. Each week's thought-provoking video will be available for you to watch prior to your weekly small group discussions. In such tumultuous times, it's now even more important to fix our eyes on the Lord and look to His Word for direction. We hope you will join us!
