Adult Spiritual Growth 

As a committee, it is a team of people dedicated to providing experiences, connections, and educational opportunities for adults (and sometimes older youth). A variety of activities fall under this umbrella; including Bible studies, Feed My Starving Children, outings to Saints or Twins games, book club, movie nights, financial education, and other functions.

Wine ‘n Word

Led by Pastor Rusty

A group of adults meet at FLC to share a glass of wine, some light snacks, and read large tracks of one of the Gospels. We spend ice-breaking time to learn something about wine or wine-making; then we concentrate on reading together the gospel associated with the upcoming liturgical year. 

Signing up in advance IS REQUIRED to gauge snacks and wine.

NO childcare.


Movie Night for Adults
