Sunday Morning Christian Education
Each Sunday morning at 9 am, there are typically two or three concurrent education offerings for adults at FVPC. Participants can choose from a “No-Prep” Bible Study class (topics vary), a class on Faith or Spirituality, and a Current Issues Forum. Topics for each class change from week to week. No advance registration is needed, and everyone is welcome to drop in to any class that interests them.

Adult Weekday, Saturday and Evening Christian Education
We have a number of classes in the evening and during the week for learning and growth!
Brown Bag Bible Study
Want a sneak preview of Sunday’s sermon and the opportunity to share your ideas about the scripture for the coming Sunday? Then come to the Wednesday brown bag Bible study from noon to 1:00 pm in the Conference Room, and bring your lunch if you wish. The pastor who is preaching on the coming Sunday leads the discussion.
Women’s Book Club
In an effort to better answer the question "Who is my neighbor?", FVPC has started a women's book club where the books will specifically include diverse central characters from groups that have been marginalized and oppressed in our culture, written by authors from the same diversity group. We hope this book club will serve as an opportunity to expand our minds and hearts through reading great books, and participating in open and honest conversations in a safe and accepting environment. Members and friends of FVPC are invited to participate. Our women's book club typically meets on the first Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. Contact the church office to confirm the date, time, location, and book for our next meeting.
Women’s Bible Study
The women’s Bible study group meets for study, fellowship and prayer on Thursday mornings from 9:30-11:00 am in Room 1 from September until May. If you want to learn more, the church office can put you in touch with the coordinator.
The Enneagram Journey
This small group, facilitated by Beverlee Ludema and Pastor Stephanie Anthony, will use a DVD-based curriculum created by Suzanne Stabile, a master enneagram teacher and guide.
Community of Faith
All are invited to join The Community of Faith adult study group, which meets on the second Saturday of the month, from 8:00-9:00 am in the Chapel Room. Coffee and refreshments are served. Generally, a FVPC sermon from the preceding month is the focus of the study.
All women of the church are invited to participate in a Presbyterian Women (PW) circle. Our circles are affiliate with the PC(USA) national Presbyterian Women organization. Each of the PW circles – Dorcas Circle and Priscilla Circle – include Bible study as part of their monthly meetings.
