First Church’s growing ministry of Christian Education for children, youth, and adults is designed to inform by awakening or enhancing ethical awareness, bringing alive our biblical and historical roots, and giving direction and skill to our impulse to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ.
Our Sunday School for preschool through eighth grade meets each Sunday morning, September through June, from 10:00 – 11:15 a.m. Well trained and professionally supervised volunteer teachers seek to create a caring, accepting atmosphere in which to learn about the Bible and the principles of the Christian faith as they apply to living faithfully in today’s world. See our Sunday School Page for more information, including registration information and forms.
Ninth graders attend a year long Confirmation Class in preparation for confirming their baptisms and joining the church. These classes meet primarily on Sundays, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. See our Confirmation page for more detailed information.
Adult education is offered in the form of weekly Bible studies, occasional book studies, and courses on a variety of faith topics offered throughout the year. A spiritual retreat is also offered for adults.
