We are excited for this year's VBS, titled "Compassion Camp" where we'll spend time learning about God's call to care for each other. We will have four sessions this summer from 2-3:30 on Saturday, June 12th, Saturday June, 19th, Saturday July 31st, and Saturday August 7th. Children of all ages are welcome and families are welcome to attend as well! We look forward to seeing you in the Pavilion!

Finley offers a number of Sunday School courses and related groups. Our current lineup includes:

-    God’s Superheroes/Little Lambs (children/youth) covers children and youth at Finley.  The class is led by Ellen Kell and has recently studied topics such as books of the bible, prayer, and the ten commandments. 

-    Pastor Tommy plans to begin a middle/high school study called Big God, Big Questions which will incorporate a confirmation option for participants that are ready to take that step.

-    Nursery is also offered for younger children during the worship hour
-    Faithful Friends is an adult class that uses videos and books as their study format.  Recently the class explored The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, Unafraid by Adam Hamilton, Faithful – Christmas through the eyes of Joseph by Adam Hamilton, and The Old Testament as Literature. Their current study is Sermon on the Mount by Amy-Jill Levine. The class is self-led by members.
-    Faith Café, our young adult class meets each Sunday to support each other and discuss the unique challenges of school, work, and family during these times. Recently they have been working through Donald McKim’s Presbyterian Beliefs: A Brief Introduction

-    The Finley Book Club gathers monthly for fellowship and discussion of a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction.

-    Bible Studies: on occasion bible study groups are also formed and led by a member of Finley or by our pastor.

Fellowship Opportunities

Finley provides a number of opportunities for fellowship and fun throughout the year, which in the past have included Crock Pot cookoffs, ice cream socials, picnics, Bible Jeopardy, and pot luck meals and fun at Lofton Lake to name a few.

 

With the challenges of our current context of social distancing due to Covid 19, we have continued to seek ways to keep members connected. During the past year members have sent each other care packages, participated in the "Finley Connects! Small Group Fellowship" program, played virtual trivia and bingo games, and shared favorite dishes with a "Taste of Home" video series.  Each Sunday morning at 9:30am Finley holds a virtual Coffee Half-Hour where participants have a chance to catch up and stay connected.
