Sunday School at FMC is about helping you grow spiritually not only on Sundays but during the week as well. Our Sunday School classes provide a network of support and care, being made up of groups of people in similar life stages. In addition to building friendships, they also provide help (meals after surgery, notes while in the hospital, prayer support, etc.). Sunday school classes meet at 8:00, 9:00 and 10:15 a.m. If you are in need of finding a class, talk to an usher at an entrance, and they can point you in the right direction.
Our mission with small groups is to provide an opportunity for people to connect with one another (six to twelve individuals) for the purpose of following the Great Commandment and accomplishing the Great Commission. If you are not part of a small group, but would like to be, please call the church office.
"Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
