Spiritual Growth

As God's children, we celebrate opportunities to explore, discover, and grow closer to Him! At FPCLY, we offer a wide variety of experiences for children, youth, and adults to help you see, feel, learn, and deepen your connection to Him!

Sunday Morning Opportunities

Adult Bible Class

The scripture based study is centered on the God of hope, the maker of all things new, who sustains us with His great and precious promises.  This study will use Max Lucado’s work Unshakable Hope: Building our Lives on the Promises of God.  All study materials will be provided.

led by Gary and Beth Williams

9:15am to 10:10 am in the Martin-Gifford Room and via Zoom

Both of these opportunities are temporarily suspended

Before class, head to Coffee Cafe to enjoy light breakfast items with our faith community.

After worship, stay for a few minutes and enjoy lemonade and cookies while deepening your relationship with others.

Spiritual Growth @ FPCLY


"Immerse" is a devotional series developed by Pastor Peter Thompson as a part of his Doctoral Research Class and final program project. The devotional is a 12 part series designed as an alternative form of worship when the ability to be present at church has been impacted due to stay at home orders, a weekend soccer tournament, weekend theater competition, or other activity. Each part of the series can be completed in one setting or it can be broken down over the course of a couple of days.

Our Spiritual Growth Committee honors the mission statement of “celebrating God’s grace and inspiring the next generation for Christ” and works together, meeting monthly to ensure our opportunities, events, and goals align truly to “celebrate” and “inspire.” 

To find out more about Spiritual Growth opportunities at FPCLY or to get involved in teaching, planning, or implementing, please contact Kathleen Lifsey (Director of Children’s and Youth Ministries).
