 – Fall 2017 Semper Reformanda

(“Always Reforming”)

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the (commonly acknowledged) beginning of the Reformation.  When Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses in 1517, a tidal wave of church politics, theology, worship, practice, and renegotiated structure would move across Western Christianity in a way that would leave the Christian church forever changed.  This movement is foundational to our identity as Presbyterians, and this Autumn the Institute of Faith Formation here at FPCHS will dive deep into the Reformation – its key moments, figures, reforms, theological/biblical components, and legacy.  We will be offering various classes from September through November, highlighting the most important aspects of the Reformation for the church of 16th century Europe, and even more importantly for our own church in 21st century America. Come join the conversation and learning experience as we study and celebrate this important period in church history and our lives as Christian disciples.

September Offerings

The Church Changes – A Reformation PrequelAfter the Resurrection, Christianity spread like wildfire. Early churches were led by the Apostles, who had been taught by Jesus. Some wrote down the Gospel message. But what happened to Christianity after the apostles were gone? How did it develop and change? During this class we will look at three changing areas of belief and how this led to the Reformation. Led by Linda Woodman.

The Birth of a Movement – Join Pastor Doug as we take a look at three important aspects of the eve of the Reformation in Europe. The class will dive deep into each topic, and will concern itself only with the situation in Europe right as the Reformation was beginning (while Linda’s class takes a wider look over centuries). How did the landscape of life, faith, politics, and power in the late 15th and early 16th centuries contribute to the Reformation’s beginning? The earliest life stages of the Reformation will be examined and discussed, with room for critique, question, and the occasional “amen”!

 

Welcome!

Yes, welcome to our church home page, but more than that, welcome to our church which our members call their spiritual home. We are a family of Christians eager to worship God, serve Christ, and enjoy fellowship in the Spirit; and we invite you to be a part of our church family.

I think you will find many opportunities to connect with God and others—three Sunday morning worship services; Sunday School classes for all ages; multiple choirs and music groups; spiritual and social activities for all ages; and many mission projects. We are an historic congregation, yet we seek to remain relevant in our ever-changing culture.

This website will give you a glimpse into our church life and provide you with information about our ministries. However, we think we are best experienced in person. Join us on a Sunday morning or attend one of our many programs. I think you will come to believe, “I’m home.”
