At First Presbyterian Church, we believe that education in the Scriptures and the teaching of the faith is essential to our spiritual growth. Jesus’ final words in the book of Matthew, the Great Commission (Mt. 28.18-20) call us to “make disciples of all nations… teaching them to obey all that I have command you.” All Christians are both disciple-makers and disciples in process. Disciples are Bible-based people; the study of God’s Word shapes our lifestyle. Sunday School is one way we grow in our love and knowledge of God and his Word, a relationship that will continue forever!
Classes take place on Sundays morning from 9:15-10:15. We encourage everybody to explore the course offerings and get involved! Here are the classes currently available:

The Old Testament has a lot to teach us! We are currently studying 1 Samuel. A typical class starts with praise and prayer time followed by study and discussion.
