Called to be disciples of Christ.

Here at First Pres, our adult ministry is centered on our mission as a church – to know Christ and to make Christ known together. We are called to become disciples of Christ and be equipped for the work of ministry. 


First Pres offers a variety of Faith Foundations classes and Bible studies that meet people where they are in life in order to equip them to know Jesus through scripture and to take that knowledge and apply it to our lives. We believe Christian Education is a lifelong journey to understand who God is and how He wants us to live our lives as we faithfully serve Him. The Christian Adult Education ministry seeks to bring people from all stages of their Christian walk together for mutual growth and encouragement.



*Meets Sundays at 10 AM (during spring and fall).

THE WISDOM OF PROVERBS (Room 201 – Kyle Palmer)
To accept the invitation the book of Proverbs gives God’s people to pursue the path of godly wisdom. This leads us to Jesus Christ, while paying attention to the Old Testament voices, which together with the revelation in the New Testament, will help participants of this class comprehend the excellence of wisdom. 

THEY WALKED WITH GOD (Room 202 – Clay Brown)
Scoundrels…Prostitutes…Thieves…Deceivers…Manipulators…Liars… Kidnappers…Murderers…Outlaws…What kind of people are these? The king of people who “Walked with God”! The ancestors of Jesus. Story after story marked by scandal, stumble and stupidity. Who are these people? They are us! We find our stories in theirs. We find hope where they found theirs. 

FIRST PRES 101 (Room 301 – Steve Wood)
Let’s connect and help you in your journey at First Pres. We will help you find your fit, introduce you to missions, help you get involved in Faith Foundations, Vital Groups and other ministries of the church. We’ll get you plugged in!

Thursdays from 12:10-1:00 PM in room 202
September 7 – December 14 (no class on Oct 5 and Nov 23)

The ancient church father, Origen, wrote, “As to who actually wrote the epistle to the Hebrews, God knows the truth of the matter.” This unknown writer encourages Christians to remain steadfast in suffering and to remember that Jesus is better than angels, Moses, Joshua, the priests, the sacrifices, the old covenant, even Mount Zion itself—Jesus fulfills and supersedes them all. Join us on Thursday, September 7 at 12:10 PM in room 202 as we begin this 13-week study on the book of Hebrews. Bring your brown bag lunch and feast with us on the word of God.
