adult education

FPC believes that our journeys as disciples are ones of constant growth. Education is a big part of the journey. 

We offer Christian Education programs that are engaging, thought-provoking, meet-you-where-you're-at

type of classes.

  • Adult education class - "grounded in creed"

    The Apostles’ Creed has been around for about 1,500 years, and has grounded the faith of the Christian church ever since. But why does it say what it says? Have you ever been puzzled by some of its phrases? Want to learn more about what each section says? If you’re curious, we hope you will join us in the six-week study Grounded in Creed


    We will meet in the Hope Room on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. for this book and DVD-based discussion from October 20 – November 24. Books are available in the church office for a $13 donation.

  • women's bible study - "Love Carved in stone: a fresh look at the Ten commandments"

    Join us for the Women’s Bible Study group the first Monday of every month. This group is centered around a new Horizons Women’s Bible study program, Love Carved in Stone: A Fresh Look at the Ten Commandments by Eugenia Anne Gamble. The program runs Monday, October 7 through Monday, June 1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Hope Room. NOTE: The first class will be held on Tuesday, October 8, then the first Monday of the month following that.

     

    What would it mean to consider the Ten Commandments not as a harsh list of what not to do but, instead, as a “love letter” from a loving God? A fresh embrace of the Ten Commandments (or Words), author Eugenia Gamble suggests, may ultimately contribute to the restoration of ourselves and our communities and the furthering of the gospel in the world. “Moral behavior matters, not simply because immoral actions can anger or disappoint God, but because principled behavior is how love becomes real, both toward God and in community.” Love Carved in Stone is a Bible study that helps us reframe the way we look at and live in the world.

  • Summer soul-stice

    In 2012, First Presbyterian Church started a summer morning series that carried forward the success of several women’s retreats that had explored a variety of relationship issues. The new series, six bi-weekly sessions, was named Summer Soul-stice in recognition of the time of year and the influence of the place. Essential goals that have maintained over the years include leadership from an experienced resource person or persons and a relaxed, open atmosphere that encourages discussion and questions within an hour framework.


    The series begins the second Tuesday in June and ends in early August. It is free, open to anyone, and promises to stir curiosity, imagination, and exploration.
