Thoughtful Faith Community
Thoughtful Faith Community (TFC) is a time for our congregation to come together for fellowship and education. This fall, TFC looks a little different as we adjust our schedule and programming due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
TFC-Youth and TFC-Kids have weekly one-on-one family and fellowship opportunities with Marnie and Sandy, details and sign up are sent via email.
TFC-Adults studies and conversations are geared to help us find our place in the ongoing struggle for justice for all people. We will think critically and theologically about what God says through scripture and in Christ’s example. It will allow us each to consider our role and calling as followers of Christ. Details and sign up information will be posted below and emailed, a week before the program.
