Christian Education

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION:  At First Church, we view Christian Education as a life long endeavor essential to spiritual growth.  We offer church school and bible classes for everyone. On Wednesday evening, there is mid-week bible study at 7:00 PM. where those who meet study, read the bible and worship. During the year there are workshops and studies that meet the needs of the congregants.  Come join us and enrich your life.  Everyone is welcome.  There is something for everyone. 

The Education Committee designs and recommends to the Church Council an organization of the education program of the church in keeping with the standards and policies developed by the General Board of Discipleship and keeps the Church Council aware of sound education procedures. The committee nominates superintendents (as needed), teachers, counselors, and officers of the church school. 

The committee is expected to ensure that persons of all ages are provided with opportunities to study the Bible and the Christian faith and life, and to facilitate the use of resources which are based on curriculum plans which have been approved by the General Board of Discipleship. It also encourages the certification of education assistants as directors or ministers of Christian education or as associates in Christian education. (2012 Book of Discipline, par#1108-1109)
