Winter Session
January 6 - February 24

The Art and Practice of Listening
January 13 & 20, February 17 &24
taught by Joy York … in the Fireside Room
Listening is an important part of building relationships and creating community. Listening helps us to understand and empathize with other, and is a practical way that we communicate care for others. Often in school, work, and relationships, people are told that they need to listen better, yet little is said about how we can listen better. This interactive 4-week series will examine the practice of listening from a biblical perspective and research in this area, and will offer practical listening skills that you can use in your conversations.

Joy York is an Assistant Professor in Communication Studies at Whitworth University. Her teaching and research focuses on the practice of communication in organizations, leadership, and personal relationships.  She’s also a member of our worship team playing guitar and leading vocally occasionally in our early worship service.

Liturgy & Life-Sharing
January 6-27 & February 17-24
This winter a group of mostly young-ish adults at FPC are experimenting with a new gathering during the 10am Common Hour. Here is what we hope it will look like:
Liturgy elements like reading and responding to scripture, prayers, poems, writings, visual art, music, video, audio.
Praying together in new ways.
Authentic discussion of important issues related to following Christ - we’ll strive for this to be a safe place to share and be real about difficult topics, struggles, doubt, wherever you are in your faith journey.

January 27: Easter Project Pancake Breakfast
February 3: EP Bake Sale and Mixing the Generations
February 10: All Church Annual Meeting
