Adult Ministry

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

First Steps

First Steps: An Introduction to the PC(USA) and First Presbyterian Church

Meeting each Sunday in March, First Steps is a great primer class covering aspects of the wider PC(USA) denomination and beliefs as well as information specific to First Presbyterian Church – Stillwater. While this class is geared towards visitors and newer members who may be looking to learn more about our fellowship and faith practices here, anyone is invited to join! Established members are often a welcome addition to the class discussions, and revisiting the basics can be a wonderful spiritual refresher. This class will meet at 9:45 am on Sundays March 5, 12, 19, and 26 in South Fellowship Hall.

Leaders: the Communications & Connecting Committee and Pastor Kati.

Faith & Fellowship

Faith & Fellowship is an ongoing Sunday school small group. The focus of this class is to build a community amongst the members. We welcome singles and couples who desire to share in fellowship, study and worship. This will be a discussion-based class where members decide on the topics and take turns leading various lessons guided by selected video lessons or other structured materials. Depending upon the Covid-19 situation, we hope to have a variety of social activities together as well as class mission projects. This class meets during the Sunday school hour (9:45 – 10:45 am on Sunday mornings) in the Multipurpose Room. For more information or if you have questions about this small group, contact Deacon Tim Hardin.

Lectionary Bible Study

Lectionary Bible Study is an ongoing Bible study that meets weekly on Thursday mornings at 10:30am in the Hospitality Area at First Presbyterian Church. All are welcome to join us as we look at the Scripture readings for the upcoming Sunday. Access the weekly lectionary readings here.

Contact the church office for more information.

Other Offerings

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.

For more information or to join this group, contact the Leaders, Kay Stewart or Linda Burks.
