We’ve heard this called “Sunday school” or “Bible study” for most of our lives. The opportunities we offer at FHPC teach about the joy of “practicing” our faith in the community. 

We call it Christian Formation because we hope to be “formed” by the Spirit in faith. Consider stretching your discipleship practice this year by participating in a new group or a favorite group.
