Christian Education at First Presbyterian Church

Sunday School

Sunday school will resume at 9:45 Sunday mornings starting September 10th with Sayer “Skip” Strauch launching a study of Acts. He promises to cover all 28 chapters of the book often described as a history of the birth of the church. Classes will be in the Fireside Room. The 11-week series will continue through November 19. Just bring your Bible and read the assigned chapters before class. The course outline is on the table in the Narthex.

Book Club

There is a group of us that meet via Zoom Mondays at 4:00 pm for discussions about the book we are all reading.  Our focus is on books about social justice, religion, or environment.  We will be starting again on Monday, September 11 at 4:00 pm.  Our book for this fall is The Land is Not Empty by Sarah Augustine.

Fall Evening Class

Our fall evening class is a 10-week study on Women of the Bible. Josie Metz will lead the 7 p.m. Thursday class beginning September 28. It will be in-person in the Fireside Room, and if there’s enough interest it will also be offered at the same time on Zoom. There’s a workbook by well- known author Max Lucado which will lead you to the scripture on some familiar women in the Bible such as Sarah and Mary, Jesus’ mother. You’ll also meet some women many of us have forgotten about. One is Sapphira, who in Acts 5 dies after not being forthcoming about a property sale which was to be shared with the church. It’s a lesson which spread quickly amongst believers. As Lucado notes, one-by-one these 10 women changed the world. Please sign up for the class on the sheet in the Narthex so we can order enough workbooks.
