"Presbyterian/Reformed Christians take educational mission seriously. We value informational education, learning about the world and how it functions. We value vocational education, developing God-given talents in order to fulfill the vocation to which we have been called. And fundamentally we value transformational education, as the Brief Statement of Faith says: 'The Spirit gives us courage . . . to witness to Christ as Lord and Savior, to unmask idolatries in church and culture, to hear the voices of people long silenced, and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace.'"
From Sunday School and Youth Confirmation to Vacation Bible School and spiritual retreats at Mo-Ranch and Camp Gilmont, First Presbyterian has a wide range of opportunities to dig deeply into Scripture and work together to find ways to apply these lessons to our daily lives.
Christian Education is vital to the life of the church and to each person's ministry in the world. We have established programs for Adults, Youth and Children and are working continuously to find new ways to incorporate new learning opportunities into the life of our congregation.
The denomination's Presbyterian Mission Agency leads a number of programs focused on all aspects of Christian Education, including publishing the annual curriculum for Presbyterian Women.
