Christmas Party!

This Wednesday, Dec. 15th from 5:30-8:30pm, the Junior and Senior High youth groups will have a Christmas Party!
Come ready for a Chick-fil-a dinner! Also be prepared for our funny/ugly Christmas sweater/outfits competition! Our judges will determine the best and award a prize, and there will be time for white elephant gifts (budget around $10). If you are unable to afford a gift, let Pastor Gutiérrez know so he can bring extras, and come anyway!
Reservations required so we have enough food for you! Please visit this page to register on, or before December 12th:




Senior High Youth Group

Time: Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30pm –

Location: DeSoto Hall (Faith Presbyterian Church)

Description: A time for our youth to come together socially in the middle of the week, led by Pastor Gutierrez. The senior high youth group is meeting in DeSoto Hall. Please stay home (and email me so I can pray for you) if you are sick, have a fever, or have been around someone sick. Contact Pastor Gutierrez if you would like to be included in email communications.







Senior High Sunday School

Time: 10:00-10:45am

Location: Room 304 (Upstairs)

Description: Christians are often accused of being unreasonable and intolerant by unbelievers, who argue that Biblical perspectives are hateful if the Biblical perspectives disagree with their own secular views. This can make conversations about God and life very difficult, and these secular perspectives can even begin to seep into our thinking and make us question our own Christian worldview. In this Sunday school we will be using Tim Keller’s book, The Reason for God, and we will analyze worldly ways of thinking while seeking to gain a better understanding of why we believe what we believe. High schoolers (9-12th grade) are encouraged to join us with Pastor Gutiérrez Sundays, 9:45-10:45am, in room 304 upstairs.









Girls’ Discipleship Group

Time: Wednesdays, 2:20-3:20 – Kicks off Sept 15th

Location: FPC – Room 304

Description: The Girl’s Discipleship Group meets once a week. We study God’s Word, and what it says about who we are, what we should pursue and how we should think of ourselves and those around us. We pray together and talk about the challenges of living in the world as young women today. We also sharpen each other as daughters of the King. An email will go out at the beginning of the school year inviting FPC and CHS girls to our first meeting. We look forward to seeing new students as well as those who have faithfully attended this past year!

A joint FPC/CHS ministry, the Girls’ Discipleship group is a gathering of high school age young women for the purpose of growing together in their faith and walk with Christ. This group is led by Melissa McMillan, Wendy Tamminga and Rachael Shelden and includes a time of prayer for one another, as well as a topical discussion focused on the practical challenges of living the Christian life as young women.



Guys’ Discipleship Group

Time: Wednesdays, 2:20-3:20pm – Kicks off Sept. 15th
