FPC’s theme for the year is Building Connections because the Bible tells us that loving relationships matter: relationships with God, and relationships with one another. Furthermore, brain science research tells us that these relationships are the biggest builder of children’s brains and the greatest way to build health and well-being into their lives that will last into adulthood. Kick-off Sunday is for children, youth and adults! Join us as we build relational connections that matter within the body of Christ.   
Descriptions of study opportunities for adults, youth, and children for the 2019-2020 study year will be available at the church this Sunday, August 25.
