Adult Education

Visitors are always welcome!

Deep Faith, Inquiring Minds

For over 50 years, since the beginning of First Presbyterian’s present-day program of adult education in 1964, we have sought to build a rich tradition of excellence in programs for educating adults through small groups, Bible studies, classes, seminars, and the church’s library. The purpose is to encourage every member to advance along a personal journey of faith toward understanding God’s will for our church and for his and her individual circumstances. More information on current offerings can be found on the church calendar (side bar) or by contacting the church office.

Study Groups

We offer study groups in a variety of formats to fit into the interests and busy schedules of our members. We hope you will join us! Bible Study Groups – Our on-going Bible study meets at 8:15 on Sunday mornings. In addition, we frequently offer short-term Bible study groups focused on a particular chapter or topic.

Sunday Seminars

We hope you also will join us for the Adult Education Seminars on Sundays at 10:45 or 11 am in Fellowship Hall during the academic year. The seminars are provided both by church members and community members with special expertise in the topic. Visitors are always welcome!

Past Seminars (as well as worship services) may be viewed on our Youtube page:
