Adult Ministry at First Presbyterian Church encompasses a great variety of opportunities for study, fellowship and spiritual development. Together in Sunday School classes, Bible study groups, fellowship gatherings, we create space to explore faith, support each other, and be transformed by God. It is our hope to offer a learning and fellowship environment for adults in various stages of life, single or married, without kids or with kids, working or retired. The majority of our adult education programs are offered on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, but there are also many other opportunities offered throughout the year during different seasons of the church year.

Todd Hobbie Class
This adult class, led by one of our ministers or a special guest, explores Scripture, Theology and faith-based topics through lecture and discussion. Together they explore the important real-world questions, they dig deep into stories and themes from the Old and New Testament, and they study the writings of theologians, early church writers, and leaders of faith.
This discussion group seeks to explore ways to deepen one’s life of faith. Through occasional book studies and lectionary-based curriculum, this class aims to build community, learn lifelong faith practices, and connect what they learn about following Christ to service to their neighbors, community, and world.
This discussion-based class is offered for women who are seeking a space to connect and learn from other women from all walks of life. They study a variety of faith-based topics and they work to create a space in which women can feel supported and empowered in their faith, their vocation, and their community.
This discussion-based class is built around a desire to support one another through various life experiences, and to pay attention to how Scripture and faith can serve as a comfort and guide. Through study they see how Jesus has been present alongside them through their journey of faith.
