Discipleship is the ongoing transformation of our hearts, our minds and our lives.
We believe that discipleship is a lifelong journey. There is never a time in our lives when we can be satisfied with our growth or our certainty. Certainty is about being right. Faith is about being guided by what’s right and training yourself to do it.
FRC’s worshiping community welcomes faith with all the doubts, the questions and the mystery. Our hope is to provide space and opportunities for exploration and inquiry, questioning and listening, dialogue and discernment. There is also nothing like participating in hands-on service to deepen your faith and put it in action. Throughout the year, we offer many opportunities for missional service and group study groups.

Spiritual Gifts: What are Yours and How Are You Using Them?
Each of us is uniquely gifted and talented to contribute as an extension of Christ to the world. 1 Corinthians 12 - "There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them." Do you know what gifts have endowed to you by God/s Spirit? We will help you discover what they are! Join us for this one-session opportunity to learn about spiritual gifts. Before the session, you would take a spiritual gifts inventory through our website. Then, we would meet as a group and learn about gifts and what you discovered.
