Communities of Belonging

Our church is committed to building an even better community within our church family through our Communities of Belonging.

Finding community is an integral part of growing in faith, and the Communities of Belonging initiative hopes to provide opportunities for us to build new relationships. Life has a way of pulling us in many directions, and we recognize the desire to connect beyond just Sunday mornings.  We are excited about this season in our church as we explore together how every member can be the connected body of Christ.

Lent 2022 Communities of Belonging

Communities of Belonging for the spring Lenten season begin the week of March 6th through the week of April 24th. We recite the Apostles’ Creed nearly every week in worship here at FPC. Yet for many it remains a dull routine fraught with confusion or doubt. So, do we really need creeds? Some people do not like the idea of pinning truth down. Others want to stick to the Bible alone. Certainly, it is true that only the Bible is God’s inspired word – creeds cannot have the same authority. But creeds provide important insights to who we are and what we are about as the people of God. Join us this Lenten season as we discover how the Apostles’ Creed is derived from Scripture and open ourselves once again to its life-changing significance for our daily lives.

Register online to join one of the Lent Communities of Belonging groups starting the week of March 6th. There will be multiple options for COB groups at different times, on different days, using different formats (virtual, in person, or hybrid).
