Adult Education

Adult Faith Formation

Christian education does not end with children and youth at First Presbyterian. Here you will find Bible study and discussion opportunities for adults to come learn, discuss, and pray together.  For more information, contact Nikki Passante:

  • Thursday Night Bible Study with Pastor Nikki: The Letter to the Romans.  We will begin studying the Apostle Paul's 'Letter to the Romans' via zoom on February 1st.  You are invited.  We will meet every Thursday night at 6:30 with one exception: There is NO CLASS ON  FEBRUARY 15th. 
    A detailed syllabus will be available after the first few gatherings.  All are welcome and no advance preparation (or prior biblical knowledge) is necessary. Come and enjoy fellowship with a wide range of people and viewpoints, from our church fellowship and others, in a safe space where we are given room to grow together in Christ.

  • Lenten Small Groups. In 2024 we are reading  Meeting God in Paul: Reflections for the Season of Lent by Rowan Williams. Rowan Williams explores the essential meaning and purpose of Paul's letters in this beautifully written resource for the Lenten season. Williams places a special focus on the social world of Paul-and the "dangerous newness" that was Christianity-and the specific ways that the behavior and language of the Christian community was being molded and shaped in Paul's time. The books are available in the Bean Parlor. They cost $10 each. Please leave your payment in the envelope by the books or pay via Realm and note "Lent Book" in the memo field.

    These small groups are led by lay leaders of the church. They are a great way to connect with brothers and sisters in Christ through study, discussion, and prayer. To participate, please complete the form. (If you already signed up on paper, you do not need to complete this form.)
  • Porch Bible Study -  The Porchers meet once a month in person or on Zoom to study a book of the Bible and have prayer time. Everyone is welcome. No preparation ahead of time is necessary. For more information, contact Deb Nussbaum: Feel free to join, even if you haven’t attended previous study sessions.
  • Sailboat Church - Helping Your Church Rethink Its Mission and Practice by Joan S. Gray - A congregational read. Members continue to discuss this powerful book, which was read by several small groups and members of Session.  Observations and suggestions have been offered by many regarding the importance of prayer, the power of small group gatherings, and ways to minister to our church family and neighbors.

  • The Justice and Advocacy Committee does periodic book studies and brings in occasional speakers. All are welcome. Future meetings will be listed in the Bulletin. For more information, go to the Justice and Advocacy page.
  • Christian Heritage Class - Our 34th Year Learning about Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church through an in-depth study of Church history, theology, art, music—and (sometimes!) pilgrimage travel. Topic for Fall 2023:   Jesus and His Followers. All are invited to join Church historian David Stedman after worship learn more about the history of our faith. Classes meet after 10am worship most Sundays. Please check the bulletin for topic information. The winter and spring schedule can also be found here.
