adult education

We, at First Presbyterian, believe that education is a life-long learning process.  Because of this belief we offer a number of opportunities for adult to learn about issues pertaining to faith on Sunday morning and  during the week.  Here are some of the things we are currently offering adults:
 
Sunday morning adult Christian education opportunities:.
Pastor Dave and Dr. Heidi Duncan will be leading a class on Dreams, beginning on Sunday, April 8 at 9:15 in the Fireside Room.  This seven week class will be llooking at the topics of dreams from a biblical, spiritual, and physical perspective. There is much to learn from our dreams and God often communicated to people through their dreams. Come and explore this fascinating topic with us.
 
Church and Society, in its 36th year at our church, provides a different guest speaker each Sunday morning at 9:15 AM in our Church & Society Room.  This class offers ways to see how the christian faith influences so many different aspects of our community.  Our monthly schedule for Church and Society is in our monthly newsletter.  See the link to the newsletter under the home page of this website.
