Due to the temporary restrictions implemented by our national and local government leaders, most in-person gatherings have been postponed or cancelled to limit the spread of COVID-19. However, though we are practicing physical distance, the church is called to move toward one another in loving, encouraging relationship. We hope you will be able to easily join us to find relational stability and rich Scripture study during this changing season! For information regarding our reopening of Sunday morning worship, click here.
In addition to small groups and Sunday school classes, we are providing many other resources to support you and your household during this time. Please visit our Discipleship Page below to access devotional material, prayer tools, and more encouragement during this new rhythm of life. Along with continued worship, we'll be providing new opportunities to connect as we remain physically distant from one another. We are praying for you all in the midst of this time of virus, asking Christ to bring it to an end. We hope you find connection as well as some normalcy of rhythm in this disruptive time.
The young adult community at FPC exists to carry and embody the good news about Jesus's resurrection to Houston and the world. We practice rhythms of spiritual growth, praise our Creator, and pursue the good of our city together. The goal of these core practices—personal and corporate prayer, Scripture study, worship, and service—is to cultivate a unique incarnate community of people who imitate our Savior: deeply knowing and loving God, one another, and our world. All this is lived out of an identity rooted in the completed work of Christ on our behalf. We belong to Jesus Christ, and in that freedom, we live life with God, for the world.
Our group includes a variety of ages and stages ranging from singles, married couples, married couples with young kids, young professionals, graduate students, and college students. But we all come together as a part of God's church at FPC with shared questions:
- What does it mean to follow Jesus in this stage of life?
- How does my vocation and field of study fit into God's larger redemptive plan?
- How can we cultivate a community of trust and rest together in a world that is driven by relentless pursuit of achievement?
- What does genuine Christian community look like?
- How does genuine Christian community live on mission in the world—beginning with our unique place and cultural moment?
Join us as we walk together in this stage of life, seeking to be faithful to God as we faithfully participate in the larger church body at FPC. If you'd like to know more about who we are or join our weekly email list, please contact Abigail MacDougall at email@example.com.
We will still be worshipping with our entire church body via livestream every Sunday at 10:45 AM. We are in the process of reopening (with safety precautions), as state officials see fit, so visit our reopening page for the latest details and updates. You can access the livestream page below or join us for a watch party together on the 11:05 service community Facebook page.
We will still be practicing communal gathering virtually every Sunday morning at 9:45 AM for sharing, discussion around Scripture and our times, and prayer together. We are currently journeying with our larger FPC body through reading the Bible, Cover to Cover in 100 Days, and meeting each week to encourage one another and share insights. If you would like to join in on the journey, visit the Cover to Cover information (and reading plan) page here. You can join on Sundays via Zoom below.
Reconciliation: The Conception and Call of the Church
Join us for an ongoing conversation series on the church's role in racial reconciliation and the pursuit of justice in our nation and world. We'll meet every Wednesday at 8 PM to diagnose our culture, our community, and our own hearts through the lens of the gospel and God's desire for His people. Through a series of video discussions around history, Scripture, and personal experiences, we hope to begin shifting our own community culture through candid and gracious discussion. The goal is that this journey would catalyze us to be change agents in our congregation and our city. Will you join the conversation to find your role in pursuing God's heart for racial justice? Sign up for the journey, beginning July 22nd, by registering below, then join us via Zoom here.
We want to pray for you! If you have any needs in this season, please fill out our request form here, and we will be bringing your petitions and praises to the Lord. We would love to pray for you by name, but you are welcome to submit requests anonymously as well. All submissions are confidential and only shared with young adult staff for the purpose of prayer.
We are also pursuing the good of others in our community and city in ways that we can in this time. Please let us know if you'd like to be added to a list of people who are ready to help as needs come in. For more information on our local and community service efforts (and ways to be served), see our ongoing mission partnerships page here.
