As children of God, we are never finished discovering, learning, and growing! First Presbyterian offers a multitude of adult educational opportunities from Sunday classes and weekly studies to fellowship activities.


Sunday Educational Opportunities

Coffee & Conversation
Sundays, 8:30am
Room 119, Martin-Gifford Room, 1st Floor

In this Sunday morning class, we will dig into Jesus’ call for us to love our enemies—what does it mean; how do we do it; why is it sometimes so hard; what is a culture of contempt; and how can we overcome contempt.  This discussion-based book study will use Arthur Brooks’ book, Love Your Enemies, as a foundational resource to ignite conversation.  The coffee will always be hot and ready! If you need assistance getting the book, please contact Marcia Thom-Kaley.

Bible 101

Sundays, 11:00am

led by Alex Collier, Michael & Rebekah Trexler, Rob Cleland, and Frank Whitehouse

This class is designed to help you expand your understanding of scripture by exploring the Bible in its historical context, investigating the authority by which it is written and examining its relevance today. Wherever you are on your faith journey, this class will offer you the opportunity to learn and grow deeper in your understanding of God's word!
