Sunday School Classes for Adults and Teens, Fall 2014

Check out these new Sunday School classes this fall at FPC Tacoma:

Introduction to Missional Theology  
Sept. 14 and 21
At the end of last year, Pastor Eric challenged us to decide whether we wanted to be a church  that contributes to God’s mission in the world, or a chapel that mostly serves the spiritual  needs of a particular group of people. The overwhelming response was that we want to be a  church that is a vital part of God’s mission in the world. The purpose of this class is to help us  all understand what that means and what it would like at First Pres. Taught by Senior Pastor Dr. Eric Jacobsen in South Chapel.

Paul’s Greatest Book: Romans
Starts Sept. 28
