fall Growth Groups

We invite you to join the Fall 2022 Growth Groups. These groups create space for deeper connection with God and others through book discussion and community prayer. For this session we are offering in-person and Zoom options.  

Groups will

  • Meet for 1 hour on Zoom and 1 ½ hours in person each week
  • Meet for 10 weeks beginning the week of September 11
  • Read Searching for Happiness: How Generosity, Faith, and Other Spiritual Habits Can Lead to a Full Life by Martin Thielen
“Instead of aiming to make more money, Thielen contends that expressing gratitude and cultivating optimism are surer paths to joy. Rather than focusing on constant advancement in our careers, let's practice our ability to forgive, to be generous, and to use trials as growth opportunities.” 


Group Options:

Sunday 7-8 PM                 Zoom

Monday 10-11:30 AM        FPC Parlor

Monday 7-8 PM               Zoom
