This year, we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. One of the hallmarks of the Reformation was its emphasis upon education. Luther, Calvin, and the other reformers believed that universal education was essential so that everyone -- not just priests -- would be able to read and understand the Bible.  At FPC, we honor that commitment to education with our Sunday school and small group classes.

Join us as we kick off our new year of classes with our annual Rally Day. Last year, Rally Day resulted in many members and visitors finding a Sunday school class that interested them. This year, we would like to see even more of our congregation join a class.

Rally Day will take place on Sunday, September 10 during the Sunday school hour at 9:30 am. We will start in Fellowship Hall where you will have a chance to meet our children, their teachers and the child care staff as well as our youth, their teachers and leaders. The adults will then move to the church building where goodies will be served and everyone will have an opportunity to meet members of the adult classes and learn more about their studies. This event allows all to learn more about the opportunities we have for Sunday morning study groups. The actual classes will resume the following week. Visit rally day for more information.
