Lenten Small Groups 

Lent is a time to reflect on what grounds us in our faith and our identity as children of God. To join others in this reflection, register for one of our Lenten Small groups here! Childcare is available for some groups with registration.

Are you in a small group at FPC and looking for a Lenten study? Consider using Kate Bowler's guide, "Bless the Lent We Actually Have." Contact Rev. Derek for more information.

Digital Minimalism

Rev. Derek Starr Redwine
Flexible Scheduling

The average person spends 7 hours a day on screens. How can we reclaim some of this time for ourselves, our relationships, and our faith? Using the book Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, develop a philosophy of technology use that arises from your values. Participants commit to reading the book, participating in a brief, weekly Zoom check-in with others, keeping a personalized 30-day technology fast, and enjoying a meal together to share what they’ve learned.
