Adult Education

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.


Advent 2020 Study - The Gift of the Nutcracker

"The Nutcracker" is a delightful and whimsical Christmas classic that children and adults look forward to every year. First performed in 1892, the music, dance, and story of this classic hold a special place in our cultural Christmas celebrations.

In The Gift of the Nutcracker, Matt Rawle, author of The Redemption of Scrooge, explores the story to help us understand God’s greatest gift of the Christ child, and the kingdom Christ came to establish.

January 2021 - Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet

Turn your reluctance into boldness by walking in the footsteps of Moses.

It doesn’t get much more dramatic: rescued baby, life in the courts of Pharaoh, parting the Red Sea, leading his people out of Egypt…Moses’ life was one challenge after the next, but although he resisted God’s calling, by the end of his life he successfully fulfilled the role he was given. Join award-winning author Adam Hamilton as he travels from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, the Nile, the Red Sea, and the wilderness exploring the sites of Moses’ life. As Hamilton shares historical information, archaeological data, and biblical text, you’ll gain a better understanding of Moses’ significance in your life today, and you’ll discover how you, too, can turn your own reluctance into boldness.

This online study opportunity will be offered on Wednesday nights in January 2021. January 6, 13, 20 and 27. 7:30 to 8:30pm. Nick and Erin Heider-Pienkiewicz will be leading this study.
