Faith Formation

Christian Education

Faith formation is a priority here at First Church.  Study of the Scriptures and our faith is an ongoing, lifelong process, as we learn and re-learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus, who teaches our world a whole new way of living and experiencing life.

Members, friends, visitors are all invited to participate in our adult faith formation classes – whether it’s a Bible study, book & video study, spiritual practice offerings and /or one-time presentation or class related to our faith.

Adult Education

This fall we participated in “Short Circles.” Short Circles are a stand-alone, drop-in time in which we considered one topic and asked questions ab out the particular topic (listed below). And, because we are in a season that needs deep prayer, each session began with a time of contemplative prayer.

Short Circles – Topics and Questions

  • Life Lessons and Their Teachers
  • The Bedrock of Your Being
  • Middle of the Night
  • Change & Regrets

You can read the session outlines here, on this page.

Sunday School

Children and youth (masks required if not vaccinated) are welcome in worship and provided with age appropriate resources in their “Worship Bag” as well as a Kids Message during worship. Then children are invited to attend Sunday School with their vaccinated and background-checked teachers in the Elliot Room next to the sanctuary. Sunday school is offered from mid-September to mid-June.
