Children and adults can experience many meaningful learning experiences in lessons and activities as a result of well-planned and organized programming by our wonderful staff , teachers, Christian EducationCommittee members, and volunteers.


Education Programs


Nursery: Infants and children up to age 3 are invited to our nursery on the second floor (ML) during Worship.

    • Children and youth meet in the sanctuary and are dismissed from worship service after the Moment with Young Worshipers, for participation in their respective programs.
    • The youth participate in REVOLUTION, which meets on Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. for activities and community volunteering opportunities.
    • The Children and Youth Sunday Service in June during worship is a highlight for presenting lessons learned, music and a culmination of the year’s educational growth.
    • Children and Youth Christmas Eve Service is enjoyed by many, and always beautifully presented with Scripture and music.
    • Vacation Bible School is offered in the month of June, is an another important event. We are one of five downtown churches that supports this program. VBS is hosted at First Presbyterian Church.
    • Summer activity trips, mission trips and work camp-community volunteer trips offer a variety of learning experiences for spiritual growth for youth and adult chaperones.

The Church Library, located on the mid-level of the building, has excellent books available for children and adults. A book rack is available in the Gathering Place on Sunday mornings.


Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study

In each class of our study, “A Guide through the New Testament” and offers an introduction to a book (or two) of the New Testament, including charts, timelines, and short pieces on special topics. We will have an opportunity to discuss in the many open-ended questions that the text offers. We gather at 9:30 for coffee and conversation.  Our study begins at 9:45 a.m. and dismisses at 11:00 a.m..  Childcare is provided by Jamie Tuin in the nursery. Please join the 20+ women who gather for fellowship each week.

Presby 101

Intro to Presbyterian Theology

June 16, 11:15 a.m.

Come learn a bit more about what Presbyterians believe. What does it mean to be part of the Reformed tradition? What if I don’t believe everything that I hear in the pulpit on Sunday morning? Pastor Chrissy will lead this time of conversation for those who are new to our community, and for those who have been around, but want to learn more.
