Adult Ministry

The mission of Adult Ministry is to prepare, challenge, and inspire women and men to a life of Christian discipleship. It is our desire that every adult become a full and fulfilled disciple of Jesus Christ, and that each person have a passion for Christian service, whether it is across the street or around the globe.

We invite you to investigate the many resources of Adult Ministries here at First Presbyterian. We hope that you will find that these resources will help bring spiritual depth to your life. If you have a question or a suggestion for the Adult Discipleship Team about resources or ministry options, please contact the church office and someone from the team will be in touch with you.

Adult Education Committee is a session led committee under the Christian Education Committee made up of volunteers that provide opportunities for Christian education, fellowship, outreach and mission.

Each study follows a topic which is broken into monthly study units using various scripture references. The class is always open. There’s a chair, a mug and a study book waiting for you! Please join in whenever you are free to. The atmosphere is that of caring fellowship, light refreshments and relevant lessons led by the pastors and participants and sparked with lots of lively discussion.

We strive to address topics that are interesting and relevant with a balanced emphasis on Scripture, Presbyterian heritage, community, mission and outreach, and living as a Christian in today’s world.
