Maymester 2019

Join us for this special month long “Maymester” before we kick-off our Summer Session.
In 2019, First Church is taking a year-long look at the importance of Christian Education in the life of a disciple and how we participate in Christian Education. As part of this focus, we are inviting everyone to Fill in Your Blank in 2019. This means that in addition to our Sunday worship, we are encouraging each person to pick (at least) one weekday class, Sunday School class, or Community Group to be a part of. At First Church we believe that growing in faith and knowledge is a lifelong process. And in order to for us to be challenged in our faith, grow in our understanding of the Bible, and become better disciples of Jesus Christ, we must engage in Christian Education.All classes meet weekly during the session unless otherwise noted. Participants are welcome to join a class even after the start date.
