The Rev. Lindsey Altvater Clifton, Associate Pastor of Formation and Justice.
Our children’s ministry is currently on summer hiatus,
and looking forward to our fall programming. We also provide a selection of prerecorded video lessons that families can use at their convenience.
FPCB has a number of opportunities for middle school

Lifelong learning is a hallmark of the Presbyterian faith, and in that spirit FPCB offers:
Hearts N Minds Adult Education classes
This group typically operates under a ‘group read’ model – where everyone reads a book together and discusses its themes and impact. It is currently on summer hiatus, and will return on Sunday, Sept. 12.
Occasional ‘book talks’ are offered, where learners are invited to read a common book and discuss it as a group.
Discipleship Classes and Series
Recent presentations include “Constructive Conversations”, sessions on spiritual resilience, a history of hymns, focus on specific Bible stories and characters, and a 21-Day Racial Justice Immersion Project.
