Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, & unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.

Join us for “Better – A Study of Hebrews” by Jen Wilkin
Wednesday’s
April 15 – June 17
10am – 11:30ish via zoom

In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.

There is video content about 30-40 minutes that will be shown before discussion. Please RSVP to tina@ffpc.org so I have a good idea how many will be joining!

Beginning Sunday May 3, my Sunday evening small group will begin a new section.

Our meetings start at 5PM and last between 1 and 1½ hour.

You should have a bible available to you for these meetings.

 

We’ll be covering Biblical “wisdom” literature – the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Job.

These three books have a unique relationship to each other and to the rest of Biblical literature.

 

Objective will be to learn the wisdom in wisdom literature.

We’ll spend time on overviews and looking at internal ties between books.

We’ll try to get into the author’s head to see what each book is trying to tell us.

And, of course to see the overarching theme of the Bible reflected in these books.

 

Plan is to cover an overview on 5/3 then cover Proverbs, Ecclesiastes then Job, in that order, expect about 2 weeks for each.

Timing of our meetings can slip based on the involvement and interaction of the participants.  There is no firm ending date.

Members of the group choose the next topic.

 

Until we can again meet in person, our meetings are on ZOOM at:  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/665389567

Griefshare is a grief recovery group that is intended for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one, family member or friend.  No matter where you are in the grieving process you will find a safe place to listen to others, ask questions and be supported.

Fenton First Presbyterian Church
Thursday’s 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Session One: Feb. 20th-Mar. 26th
Session Two: Apr 16th- May 21st.

We don’t always know the toll of our grief until we talk honestly about it.  This could be your first steps toward healing and wholeness.  Please see Hannah Hall for more information.

Gospel Project Sunday school

Nursery through kindergarten classes offered during 9am worship.

Nursery through 5th grade classes offered during 11am worship.

Why this curriculum? Because every lesson points to Jesus, and children are learning stories from the entire Bible – even the tough ones – in age appropriate ways. This allows children to very simply experience the full breadth of the Gospel message. As they grow into youth group, these lessons will be familiar, allowing them to further unpack and understand the challenges that all of humanity faces even today. Biblical relevancy and faith formation starts early and is a great gift!

Please see Tina Ritchie with any questions, or if you would like to be added to the weekly email lessons and family talking points.
