Christian Education


Christian Education is given high priority at First Presbyterian.  Special bible study groups meet during afternoons and evenings.  Vacation Bible School and the Christmas Pageant are both education and outreach opportunities, as children beyond our congregation participate. 


 

The Christmas Pageant uses children of our church and beyond our congregation to tell the story of the first Christmas.  Presented during the worship hour in Advent, the pageant has used newborns of our members as the Christ child for the past several years.


Vacation Bible School, held in the evenings during one week in July, provides for children from pre-school through elementary grades.  Usually using study and activity materials from an external supplier, this activity routinely serves over 50 children, roughly triple our own population in this age group.

Bible Study Groups

Led by the pastor, bible study groups meet on Sunday evenings and Tuesday afternoons for in-depth interactive study of a book of the bible.  Having completed a study of Revelation, they are now undertaking the book of Daniel.  The class chooses the next book to be studied as they end their reading of the current one.
