Adult Learning

Our faith journey is a lifelong experience with twists and turns.  As we grow and change, our understanding of God, Jesus, the Bible, and other religious beliefs also grow and change.
On Sundays and weekdays, small groups, classes and programs, Bible study, and retreats provide a supportive environment in which to think critically, deepen our understanding of God, and reflect with others about living as Christians in today’s world.

Please refer to the relevant First Church’s protocol and safety guidelines here.

Small Groups

Small groups develop into a community in which to reflect, learn, pray, and ask questions. These groups meet on a regular schedule and expect a long-term commitment. Click here to view small groups for Fall 2020.

A variety of Sunday morning classes for adults are offered each week and typically include Bible study, Church & Culture, Methodism, spiritual practices, and Faith & Family.  In addition, several ongoing groups meet weekly. Click here to read about Christian Education opportunities for Fall 2020.

Bible Study

Bible study groups typically meet both on weekdays and Sunday mornings to study, reflect on and discuss scripture.
