Education at FPC Alabaster

Jesus valued education.

As a child, he explained scriptures in the temple.  Later, he spoke in parables, and revealed God to us through his radically loving, obedient life.

Jesus used memorized verses, shared stories to spur active interpretation, and walked a walk for his disciples to follow.  He provided the model for Christian education.

FPC Alabaster values education, too.  It is crucial to study scripture, to actively ponder and interpret stories, and to learn from the lives of our brothers and sisters of all ages.

That’s what happens in Christian Education: we share theology and crayons; we study scripture and the emotion in our friend’s eyes; we confess our confusion and our epiphanies, and all of this strengthens our faith.
