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.
