Sunday School

Chapel Class

Adult Sunday School Class at First Presbyterian Church

This class is led by Pastor Erickson and meets in the Chapel at 9:45 a.m. during the school year. Occasionally, Dr. Cain leads special three- to four-week courses on special topics such as world religions or Christian history.

The Class will be finishing up an introduction to the Gospel of Mark in August and then turn our attention to the Protestant Reformation in September. As we study the Gospel of Mark, we will discover how Jesus was reforming and reshaping the ancient Jewish faith and traditions, and how the leaders responded with suspicion and threats. We will discover that same response from the church leaders in the Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther and John Calvin. Join us as we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and explore what it is to be “Reformed always reforming according to God’s Spirit”. Rev. Dr. Rob Erickson will be facilitating the class and Rev. Dr. Cliff Cain will be a guest lecturer October 22, 29 and November 5th. We meet each Sunday in the Chapel.

Calvin Class

Calvin Class

This formal Bible study class meets each Sunday at 9:45 am in the MacAfee Room behind the chapel. We are studying God’s call from the Book of Acts in August using the PCUSA curriculum, The Present Word. In September we will explore our covenant with God starting in Genesis and Exodus and extending through the prophets and finally through the New Covenant revealed in Jesus Christ. Join us for a lively discussion and study led by Tom Holt and Vickie Schildmeyer..
