Adult Christian Education
The understanding of God’s grace in our lives and the fellowship that occurs through this exploration is daily source of inspiration for many of us. At First Presbyterian Church, our members are active in this pursuit of understanding. We gather at 9:30 am on Sundays for studies and classes, and we have groups that meeting during the week for study and to spend time together.
Visit our Church School page for details on current studies in all Sunday classes.
During the summer our classes combine to participate in the following class options at 9:30 am on Sundays:
- YMBC in Redhead Hall (Memorial 100): Our pastoral residents, Libby Boehne and Kevin Geurink, will lead class in June; in July and August, Sandie Gravett, religion professor at Appalachian State, will discuss Buddhism and Islam.
- Seekers in the Vaughn Conference Room (Main 125, beneath Sanctuary): An in-depth study of the New Testament book Hebrews.
- Faith Matters in Myers Loyalty Room (Smith 239): Richard Rohr's book Breathing Under Water in June; Faith and Fiction led by Neil Dunnavant in July.
- Lessons from Our Pastors in the Garden Room (Smith 124) in June and July. Leaders include Sid Batts, Neil Dunnavant, Myles Fish, Aaron Ferry and David Partington (Dolly Jacobs is on Sabbatical this summer.)
