Education toward the goal of mature discipleship is a life-long process for Christians of all ages.
From September through May, series on a wide variety of faith issues are scheduled on Sunday mornings as well as weekday evenings. Recent series have included a survey of the Protestant Reformation on its 500th anniversary, the impact of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, a study of Dr. Atul Gawande’s “Being Mortal,” and several encounters with other faith communities, including series on Islam, the Baha’I faith, and the Church of Latter Day Saints. In addition, there is a Lectionary Bible Study every week led by the pastor, as well as regular weekday Bible study groups. Information on current offerings can be found on the Events page of the website.
Adult Education classes are usually held in the MacColl Room on the second floor of the Parish House, which is accessible through our 21st Street entrance.
First Presbyterian offers age appropriate educational activities for children on Sunday mornings at 10 am immediately following our Celebration! Worship.
A nursery for infants and toddlers is staffed from 9:00 am. until 12:30 pm each Sunday. Our friendly nursery staff are CPR-certified and background checked.
Sunday School rooms and the Nursery are located on the Lower Level of the main church building, accessible from either the 21st Street or Walnut Street entrances.
