Adult Faith Exploration
The First Church of Lombard Mission Statement promises “quality
Christian Education experiences for everyone,” all along life’s journey!
Believing that Faith Exploration is a lifelong pursuit, we are dedicated to
providing ongoing faith exploration opportunities that emphasize our
church’s core values as a progressive Christian congregation.
All are invited to gather Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. for open, honest dialogue on some of the big questions of life and faith. Each week, a different participant presents a new idea based around a common theme or question, sparking a new conversation each week. These discussions are available both in-person and via Zoom and provide the perfect way to connect with others and start your week off by growing together!
In order to provide a wide array of opportunities to learn more about our world, First Church organizes several high-quality, short-term studies throughout the year. Generally held Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m., recent programs include a series on Gender Identity, an in-depth study of antiracism, several Bible studies doing a “deeper dive” into Sunday’s Scripture lessons, an exploration of hip hop, a look at technology in the church, and a one-of-a-kind overview of the Bible. Each study is open to all, any week, and is always available via Zoom.
Ecumenical Lent and Advent Studies
Several times a year, First Church gathers with members of several churches here in Lombard to take a larger look at topics of faith. These multi-denomination studies are traditionally held at Lent and Advent.
