It's easy to get lost in a crowd, to feel lonely even though you may be surrounded by worshipers on a given Sunday. It is important for everyone to have the opportunity to be known and cared for and to find their niche in ministry. People grow spiritually in a caring, interactive group where they can ask honest questions and feel the support of fellow participants.
The following are some of the adult groups available at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange during the school year. We hope you will feel welcome to join any of them. Your thoughts and ideas on possible future groups are encouraged and welcomed. Contact the Church Office for more information.
Recent Adult Education programming has included the following subjects:
Understanding Islamic Militancy
The Establishment of the Reformed Churches
Theological Developments in the Early Reformed Churches
Theory of Evolution
Pope Francis Laudato Si
Men’s Discussion Groups meet in the Parlor on Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. and on most Saturdays at 7:00 a.m. All men are invited to join anytime for Bible study, prayer, fellowship and discussion.
Women’s Small Groups meet in Westminster Hall on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and in the Parlor on Thursday afternoons from 1:30-2:45 p.m. Topics vary and include book discussions and Bible studies.
Presbyterian Women offer several monthly small groups, including Bible studies, book clubs and a sewing circle, as well as luncheons with special speakers or programs on the first Thursday of each month. Contact the Church Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708.354.0771 for more information.
Occasionally we offer a limited-time small group on a special topic, sometimes coinciding with a Sunday sermon series, such as a weeknight small group during the weeks of Lent leading up to Easter.
Job Support “Boot Camp”
FPCLG is part of the Interfaith Career Network (ICN), which was started with area churches St. Francis, St. John of the Cross, St. Cletus and the First Baptist Church of La Grange. The mission statement for the ICN is to assist area residents in finding new jobs whether they are employed, unemployed, underemployed or looking to re-enter the work force. FPCLG hosts a five-week “Boot Camp” in February and September that will teach you the tools to successfully land the job you want. Watch our Church Calendar for upcoming dates.
