Christian Education
at First Presbyterian Church

Sunday school classes are offered for all ages from September through May. Classes for preschool through adult are held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. before Sunday Worship services.

Our Promises

When children are baptized at First Presbyterian Church the members of our congregation make these promises:

1. Acting as individuals and in behalf of the whole Body of Christ,
we assume responsibility with the parents for the spiritual nurture of the child.

2. We commit to set a Godly example before the child and to provide, as far as possible, all that is necessary to the end that this child may one day confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

Meeting a variety of needs and interests

From lullabies and playtime in the nursery, to learning Bible stories with the wooden figures in Young Children and Worship, participating worshiping on Sunday mornings, engaging in a comprehensive Bible study on prayer, or having fun at Vacation Bible School, our programs offer a wide range of opportunities for everyone to come to know Christ and continue to grow in him.

Adult classes meet for in-depth study of various books of the Bible and discussion of Christian-related topics.

Junior and Senior High School Youth ministries seek to address the many issues and concerns that young Christians face today as they seek to live out their faith, concentrating on the importance of building relationships with each other and with Christ in a safe environment for students to grow through leadership skills and taking risks in their faith.

The foundation for all these programs is Christ—our Savior and our Lord. The mortar that holds us together is the shared commitment from our congregation to provide an opportunity to experience the transforming power of Jesus Christ through service, community, and worship.

Our Christian Education ministry includes more than classes. Opportunities for fellowship and growth, an extensive library collection, and special events and activities invite all ages to celebrate our Lord as a church family.

Vacation Bible School is a rewarding local outreach program (in July) that welcomes local children and helps them learn more about Jesus in a happy and lively setting.
