Adult Programs

Adult Education engages members, friends, and the wider Greenwich community in the lifelong pursuit of knowledge. FPCG's faith and discipleship grow through a wide range of biblical learning opportunities through Academy on Sundays, Bible studies during the week, reading groups, and more. Programs support the deepening of our faith and the intensifying of our commitment to our Christian mission. The curriculum has traditionally pursued three themes or areas of study:  The Word, Christian Life, and the Arts. We explore current events, the arts, history, gender issues, parenting, and a broad range of topics that help us to dive deeper in our faith as we engage our hearts and minds in great conversation.

Women's Book Group

The FPCG Women’s Book Discussion Group meets once a month on a Friday morning.  We gather at 9:15 am for a chance to get some coffee and chat,  and the book discussion takes place from 9:30 to 10:30 am.  Traditionally the meetings have been in the Church Library, but due to concerns about Covid -19, we are now meeting outside or virtually on Zoom.

 

The group was formed to offer a fellowship opportunity for women of the church.  The book selections are mostly fiction, but are interspersed with non-fiction selections of topical interest.  

 

The book group is led by Colleen Giambo (203) 622-0269, or cgiambo@gmail.com, and Linda Kennedy (203) 869-1459, or mzkenn@yahoo.com.  New members who like to read and discuss books are always welcome.
