To be equipped is the second step, after worship, in our strategy at FPC to love and lead all people to deeper life in Jesus Christ. Why do you need to be equipped? Because Jesus has called you as his disciple, and God has a purpose for you to further his kingdom wherever you are. FPC offers a number of weekly opportunities to be equipped including a number of different Sunday School Classes, a variety of weekday Bible studies, Wednesday evening supper and classes (“The Gathering”) and our small group ministry called The Koin Shop. Whether it’s a Sunday morning or a Wednesday night at the church or any day of the week in a Koin Group in someone’s living room, these ministries exist to provide us with the tools, the provisions and the qualities necessary for deeper life in Jesus.
Questions about any of these opportunities? Contact Pastor or call 432.684.7821 x113.

Opportunities To Serve
There are a lot of ways to serve in the equipping ministries at FPC from simple but important jobs like decorating tables on Wednesday nights to teaching classes or facilitating a small group. All of our ministries at FPC are governed by committees, and we’d love to have you serve either on our Christian Education Ministry which oversees equipping ministries from the nursery through all ages of adults or on our Small Group Ministry which organizes the Koin Shop and helps maintain our growing participation in Koin Groups. Contact Pastor x 113 if you’d like to serve in any way.
