Adult Faith Formation

Throughout the year, a variety of Adult Faith Formation opportunities are available through First Church. We hope you will find something that piques your interest and nourishes your faith. These classes are open to all and there are no fees unless mentioned in the blurbs below. Come back often to check out our schedule of adult education offerings. If you have questions or you are interested in leading a class or are looking for a specific topic, be sure to contact Debbie Houghton (


Adult Faith Formation Sunday offerings are offered in a rotation schedule – each Sunday will focus on a different aspect of our spiritual lives:

Linking to the center – First Sundays
Living in creation – Second Sundays
Loving the community – Third Sundays
Learning to be Christ followers – Fourth Sundays

All classes meet in the same location and at the same time on Sundays: 11:00 am – 12:15 pm in Calkins Hall


New! Childcare is now provided Sunday mornings, 10:45am-12:15pm, for parents attending worship or other church activity. There is no cost to families for this service. Please come to the A room to check in your child between 10:45am and 11:15am.


Our Adult Education has finished up for the 2017-2018 season. Classes/discussions will resume in September.
