Sunday school classes are held every week at 9:45 a.m. Classes are offered for elementary youth, young adults and older adults. On Wednesday evenings, middle school and high school youth meet in Staub Hall for a time of fellowship and fun. Bobby Burris and John Wright coordinate that group feeding them and teaching a meaningful lesson.
Each year, Rally Day is held in Staub Hall in order to promote the activities coming up for each Sunday school class and to renew interest and involvement. Each year, the ministry team selects a fun theme and develops elaborate decorations and spirit in order to excite members and friends about the upcoming Sunday school year!
Bible in 90 Days
During Lent, a ministry was developed in which members of the congregation read the entire Bible from beginning to end in 90 days. Each week, classes were offered for discussion and insight into what had been read. The classes, led by Reverend Dave Treat, proved to be an enriching experience for everyone involved. Another Bible in 90 Days session is tentatively planned for this fall.
First Presbyterian Church – VBS Day Camps
During the summer, day camps are offered to the children of the church in order to promote a love of God in a fun and activity-filled way. For example, in 2012 a Teddy Bear Tea Party was given for the preschool aged children. Attendees learned about manners, etiquette and did crafts all while exploring the love of God. The kids had a blast! Also, day camps were offered for the elementary and middle school kids so that they could get a glimpse into the ministries offered in the church. They worked hard, but they had a rewarding time!
Each year, the Christian Education team sponsors youth to attend Presbyterian Church camps in order to enrich the lives of the children in the church. The financial assistance provided by the ministry helps offset some of the costs of participation and helps encourage the participation by the youth.
