Learning & Growth
Discipleship is a process of transformation , becoming more like God throughout a lifetime of following Jesus. We offer a variety of opportunities for individuals of different ages, interests and experience to learn and grow as disciples at First Pres.
Sunday School isn't just for kids. At First Pres, we take adult education and discipleship seriously. A wide variety of class are offered on Sunday mornings, ranging from small discussion-based formats to larger, lecture-style courses. Unless otherwise noted, classes meet from 9:45am to 10:45am each Sunday.
