Fairmount understands the busy lives of our members and friends. Keeping this in mind we have tried to offer shorter term classes that provide a level of flexibility for schedules. These shorter term classes also provide the opportunity for participants to partake in a lively mix of topics. During the course of a year the Faith Formation council seeks to provide a well balanced mix of the following topics:
- Christian Living and Spiritual Practices
- Contemporary Issues and Action: The Church and the World
- Theology and Ethics
- Perspectives on Literature, Arts, Science and Faith
- Our Life in the World: parenting topics, etc…
You are encouraged to choose classes that interest you, challenge you and provide you opportunities to grow in your faith and life.

Beginning this fall the Faith Formation council is launching a new class that we hope will animate your faith and the faith and life of this community.
This class, which will meet in the chapel on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45 am, will focus on the following overarching topics in a 3 year cycle.
Year 1: Theology and Church History
Year 2: Bible
Year 3: Spiritual Practices
Through the content and conversations of these Sunday mornings we pray that all involved will discover a more lively and vigorous faith that will give this community more courage and boldness as we are stirred to action by our call from God; in other words, we pray all involved will discover a more animated faith!
This class begins on Sunday, September 9th with the Rev. Dr. Linda Morgan Clement leading a conversation about the benefits of a vibrant spiritual life for youth and adults.
