"The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”
― Michel Legrand, author
At First Church we believe that we grow in our faith by prayerfully asking questions about current events and God's presence in today's world. We invite you to join the conversation at one of our adult studies.
Adult Education Opportunities
Adult Short Term Study 10:20 a.m. In feedback from the congregation, we’ve heard the desire for short term studies for adults during Sunday School and are happy to meet this need! We will be offering a variety of 4-6 week studies throughout the year, beginning with a study led by Edgar González. This is Our Time, by Trevin Wax, begins with looking at daily life in our age-smartphones, entertainment, shopping, etc. and engages in discussion about where society and the gospel meet. This class will meet for five weekss.
Adult Bible Study 10:20 a.m. Taught by Tony Fuller, this class moves through a rotation of studies on the books of the Bible. The class runs year round and through the summer months this year will be looking at the lives of the twelve disciples as portrayed in the Gospels, Acts, and tradition.
Covenant Groups 10:20 a.m.
John Wesley encouraged all Christians to participate in small groups to support one another. This year we invite you to experience the benefits of a small group experience. We will be organizing covenant groups of 6-8 to meet during the Sunday School hour. The time will be spent sharing joys and challenges, studying scripture with a provided guide, making commitments to grow in discipleship, and praying for each other and the world.
Adult Fellowship 10:20 a.m.
In the hustle and bustle of an active week, Sunday stands out as a time to rest and refresh, and fellowship is a great way to connect while enjoying this downtime. Join in a time of casual
fellowship each week to catch up with friends or make new ones. This is simply an open, welcoming space to spend the Sunday School hour in community - no prepared discussion provided or commitment expected. Join at your leisure to connect around the table or on the couches.
