Presbyterians have a long and honored tradition of promoting the education of its members. Our belief is that an educated disciple is a more effective disciple and witness for Jesus Christ. Equipping the saints for ministry is a core task of the church, one that we take very seriously at First Presbyterian Church. Offerings include age-appropriate classes for children as well as offerings for youth and a variety of classes for adults. Adult classes vary widely in age and focus. Adult learners are encouraged to visit the classes. Church membership is not a requirement for participation in Sunday School. Current offerings of our Education Department are as follows:
