SEASONAL UPDATE

Though we are practicing physical distance due to seasonal restrictions, we believe 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 study of Scripture during this changing season through our upcoming events below or through a small group or discipleship group. For details regarding small groups or discipleship groups, email Abigail MacDougall at amacdougall@fpchouston.org to get connected. For information regarding our reopening of Sunday morning worship or to save a seat, click here. Please visit our Discipleship Page below to access devotional material, prayer tools, and more encouragement during this new rhythm of life.

DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

Young Adults

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 our core practices—personal and corporate prayer, Scripture study, worship, and service—is to cultivate a unique community of people who imitate our Savior and witness to His deep love in and for the 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, those 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 to join our weekly email list, please contact Abigail MacDougall at amacdougall@fpchouston.org.


Upcoming Events

We will still be worshipping with our entire church body via livestream or in-person every Sunday at 10:45 AM. Both a contemporary service and traditional service are open on campus.

Second Annual BYOP Fall Gathering

We'll be celebrating the Fall season on Halloween with a time of competitive pumpkin carving and outdoor time together. RSVP for the evening here, as spots are limited. Bring your own pumpkin and, if you'd like, a treat or drink to share!

small groups

If you are interested in joining a small group, please click here to see a list of churchwide open groups. If you would like to talk to someone about young adult-specific Small Groups and Discipleship Groups, please email Abigail at amacdougall@fpchouston.org.

DISCIPLESHIP groups

D-Groups are gender-specific groups of 3-4 people who commit to meet regularly to support, encourage, and offer accountability to one another. Beyond just Bible study in a flexible small group, D-Groups seek to form an intimate, covenant community where believers can deeply and consistently walk beside one another in joy and trial, in practicing spiritual disciplines, and in confession, in order to spur one another on to bear more spiritual fruit in living in communion with God. If you are interested in learning more about growth and connection through D-Groups, please contact Abigail

PRAYER NEeds

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.

Community needs

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 specifically on our local and community service efforts (and ways to be served), see our ongoing mission partnerships page here.
