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 have over ten classes offered on most Sundays, from 9:30 - 10:20 a.m. Visit our Sunday page for details on classes for this week. Throughout the week, small groups offer fellowship for both men’s and women’s studies. Visit our music page to learn about our choirs and instrumental offerings.
Visit our Church School page for details on upcoming studies in all Sunday classes, updated weekly. All seven of our adult Church School classes welcome new members to their 9:30 am meetings each Sunday.
Growing Deeper: Trusting the Covenant
Join us on Wednesdays from 6 to 7:30 pm in the Vaughn Conference Room (beneath the Sanctuary) for this in-depth group Bible study in which participants read and discuss the Bible together, learning how to love God -- and each other -- better. This fall's class looks at the crises that sometimes call Covenant life into question, and how we are restored to trust in God when troubling things happen. This study continues each week through Nov. 11.
