JUSTICE and the PROPHETS

Sundays at 9:45 am    Room 103 

In February and early March of 2020, our Adult Study will be based on the Biblical concepts of Justice.  Many of these ideas are found in the books of the prophets.  Often, we only think of Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah as the prophets.  But we’ll read and discuss verses from others too.  Passages from some of the (so called) Minor Prophets have a lot to teach us about the idea of justice.  There will be many opportunities for discussion and relating the concepts to current issues.

Please join us any or all weeks you are available. Feel free to bring your coffee or a snack to class in Room 103 at 9:45.

 

Looking Forward to Lent

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb 26 in 2020.  While our congregation is in the midst of a pastor transition, the ASG Team has decided there will be no evening Lenten Study this year. 

Beginning on March 15 through Easter (April 12), the Sunday morning adult class will focus on the Biblical events of Holy Week.  One specific event or day of Holy Week will be emphasized each Sunday.

First Presbyterian Church is a Sponsor of The Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington

FPC Website images clipart2

In 2013, First Presbyterian Church became a sponsoring member of the Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington (RI). The RI is an organization that was established in 2003 "to promote understanding and awareness of the Reformed Tradition among the staff and members of Presbyterian churches located in the Washington area."  Its purpose is to help the churches in this presbytery live up to one of the basic principles of the Reformed Tradition – to ensure an educated laity. 

FPC Arlington has benefitted from many of the RI programs – the Confirmation Retreat, many of its classes, the annual convocation, and its Company of Teachers. As a sponsoring church of the Reformed Institute, First Presbyterian members are invited to participate in all of the RI adult education programs.  RI offers half-day, one day or short series adult education formats during the year for sponsoring church members. 

One member of our staff and a member of our congregation serve on the Board of Directors.  As members of the Board of Directors, we are involved in determining the programs that are offered, development activities, staffing decisions, etc.  We are expected to actively support the programs of the Institute by encouraging our members, friends, and community to participate in their offerings, and to take the things we learn and put them to use in our own congregation. For more information on the Reformed Institute, visit their website at: www.reformedinstitute.org
