Spiritual Practices

What's this all about?

Presbyterian Outlook's recent article about Spiritual Practices includes a summary of our program.

And, see Tamara Slaughter's article.

From its beginning the church linked the desire for more of God to intentional practices, relationships and experiences that gave people space in their lives to “keep company” with Jesus.

These intentional practices, relationships and experiences we know as spiritual disciplines.

– Adele Ahlberg Calhoun, from the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook

Spiritual Practices Calendar

At FPC, we want to support the spiritual formation of all ages and stages of life. This year, we will have the chance to explore spiritual practices on our own and in community. Each month we will focus on a different category of faith practice. You will learn about its foundations and how it can help you grow spiritually, receive suggestions for further reading and interactive learning, and find ways to experience that practice in the ministries of FPC. Join us on the journey!
