We offer a variety of Sunday school classes for adults during the academic year. See below for all of the current and upcoming classes.
Feasting on the Word
Feasting on the Word is an adult Bible study class that follows the Revised Common Lectionary and features a multi-media format. Each session begins with a “gathering thought”. Then there is an exploration of a specific text from the Bible and a response to that text. This class is meeting in the Upper Room at 9:45 am on Sunday mornings
Leader: Denise Rex
Faith & Fellowship
Faith & Fellowship is an on-going Sunday School class that meets every week at 9:45 am in the Multipurpose Room. Please see below for more information.
Faith & Fellowship
Faith and Fellowship is a class for people of all ages and faith backgrounds. The class is led by class members who chose the topics of study. Typically, we read and discuss a book suggested by the class, or we use a video-guided study followed by discussion. Class members volunteer to lead the discussion each week. Past studies have included a video series titled “Christianity and World Religions,” and books entitled “Being Presbyterian in the Bible Belt,” and “Holy Envy, Finding God in the Faith of Others.” Discussions usually begin with a question, and the Spirit guides the conversation from there. We meet in the Multi-Purpose room on Sundays, year around, from 9:45 am to 10:45 am. For more information, contact Tim Hardin [email protected].
Confronting Systemic Racism
An ongoing advocacy and accountability group that meets once each month. Led by Elders Kay Stewart and Linda Burks, this is a discussion and learning group where participants want to be active in seeking to:
- Educate ourselves about the presence of racism in ourselves, our systems of government, our religious organizations, etc. and
- Identify ways that we can accept accountability through antiracist actions that support the implementation of antiracist policies which move our country toward racial equity and justice.
All participants are asked to read How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.
Every January, First Presbyterian Church serves as a host site for remote viewing of the January Series, presented by Calvin University. While this year’s series has finished, you can still view some of the presentations online at calvin.edu/january and read about who was on the 2023 speaker list. Information for the 2024 January Series will be released sometime in November.
