Adult Education

Adult Ed1

Presbyterians love to learn. Through traditional Sunday School classes, special topical series and Wednesday night classes, adults have many opportunities to study and explore God’s word and world. Our adult programs are always fluid, changing throughout the year.


Adult Ed2Dr. Steve Vance teaches 8-12 week Bible studies that meet on Wednesday mornings & evenings. Wayne’s classes are on a variety of topics, and have been consistent favorites of our congregation for many years. Wayne has the unique gift of finding the topics that are relevant to the time and place in which the church and society finds themselves. These midweek studies are designed to give participants the opportunity to delve deeper into the Scriptures for the purposes of knowledge and faith formation. There are also adult education opportunities during our    Wonderful Wednesday programs that vary in topic and format throughout the year.

For more information, contact Steve.


Adult Sunday School – With numerous adult Sunday School classes, there is certainly something for everyone. The offerings range from traditional Bible studies to a meditation class, and we are always evaluating what types of classes are needed by the congregation. There is something for all ages, generations, and stages of life. Please contact Susan Tompkins for more information about Sunday School classes. Below is a list of the current offerings. 

NON-TRADITIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL “CLASS” FOR ADULTS

Haven’t found the right Sunday School class yet?

Do you enjoy catching up with friends and making new ones?

Join us in the Fellowship Hall for a non-traditional Sunday School “class” to connect, network, fellowship, get to know others, and share prayer concerns, aka, extended coffee hour. As relationships grow and strengthen, we hope new “classes” evolve to better fit the spiritual and Christian Formation needs of our people today.
