We provide Sunday School classes for all ages. Sunday School is an opportunity to teach the Bible accurately in its context in its original intent with a view to connecting every part of the Bible to the final revelation of the Scriptures in Jesus Christ. This is well expressed in the subtitle to Sally Lloyd-Jones’ The Jesus Storybook Bible, “Every story whispers his name.” After his resurrection, Jesus taught the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, “and beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24.27). We believe that is our task with our children. The teaching our children and young adults receive will not be moralism.
Our adult classes are not age specific. They are set up on semester schedules with mini-mesters between, and cover a wide range of subjects from Bible books like Revelation or Hebrews to topics like the Trinity or prayer or marriage.

The Gospel and Transformation
Led by Jeremy Lelek — Lecture HallIs the Gospel exclusively about securing your place in heaven? Does it primarily apply to the question, “If you died today do you know where you would spend eternity?” While these are important questions to consider, does the Gospel offer more? Does it speak to the here-and-now realities of life? Does it reach into our most broken moments and offer peace to the troubled soul? Jeremy Lelek will take us through a journey to bring forth the divine glories of the Gospel as they apply to the believer’s everyday experiences—those that bring joy, as well as those that call us to faithfully persevere during seasons of sin and suffering. The aim of this Sunday school series is to facilitate a deep abiding hope in the Gospel of Jesus Christ while drawing attendees closer to the loving, merciful, and kind heart of God.
Led by Ryan Moore — Room 205New to FWPC, this class will take the questions everyone has (but is afraid to ask) and turn them into a discussion-oriented format for anyone to be a part of. Led and facilitated by church members on a weekly basis, this class will take familiar topics in Christian living and theology and offer them for discussion and application around coffee and donuts. This class is perfect for visitors and members looking to meet people in the church and engage with friends. Discussion starts Sept. 3 at 9am in Room 201 lead by Ryan and Ada Moore with others to follow. New topic each week (unless the discussion is so good it needs another week to cool down). Join us Sunday mornings to see What’s Next! Who knows, it might even be your question front and center that Sunday.

Vision Checkup: How is Yours?
Led by JD Diamantopoulos — Junior High Room 204Life can be tough. Life as a follower of Jesus is even tougher. In Junior High Sunday School we will learn together what the world looks like for a Christian and how we can live life as followers of Jesus, together. Join us as we learn to see the world the way God sees it by putting Biblical “lenses” in our glasses.
Book of Romans
Led by Collin & Haddon Ryan, Phillip Maxwell — Room 203The high school class is a time to eat donuts together, drink coffee and look at the “gospel ingredients” that the apostle Paul presents in his letter to the Romans in the New Testament. As we go through Romans together piece-by-piece we will break things down to understand what the gospel is, how it shows us Jesus and how we apply that to our lives. When we encounter big questions in Romans we’ll pause to consider those together—meaning your questions help drive the discussion and class!
