At FPCGV, we offer educational programs for every age. Because you're never too young or too old to learn something about your relationship to God and to one another!
Each class is based on building relationships and study, with each class determining their own study topics. Classes that meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15am do so on the 2nd floor. There are signs on the classrooms identifying the class.
