Adult Ministries

Sunday School


The Journey class was formed by young adults in their mid-20s to mid-40s in 2007 to promote loving, learning and growing in Christ. Our class is a loving and supportive group committed to learning the Biblical teachings of our Lord and Savior, with an emphasis on real-life application as we grow in our faith. Classes are either self-taught or led by First Presbyterian leadership/elders and are always welcoming, warm, and inviting. Please come visit us!


Comprised of adults from their late 30's, a member or guest teacher leads the weekly class. Studies focus on the Bible and current issues. Sessions almost always include lively discussion. There are regular social acitivities. The class keeps in touch with cares and concerns of members and the congregation through weekly e-mails. Members are active in the work of the church and throughout the community.

Our summer studies highlight Andy Stanley's, Christian - It's Not What You Think.


The Seekers Class is cromprised of a large group who participate in lesson discussions. The late North Carolina Senator Helen Rhyne Marvin, a class member, suggested the class name. A class committee of rotating members chooses a curriculum, which varies throughout the year. The committee secures a different teacher for each Sunday. Members support one local charity and one international charity.


Originally known as the Men's Bible Class, the Henderlite Bible Class was renamed to honor the service of Dr. James H. Henderlite, pastor of First Presbyterian (1912-1940). The class uses the Uniform Lesson Series and members rotate teaching responsibilities. The class has a long and illustrious history of providing financial support for a number of charities. It welcomes men of all ages.

Roadrunner Excursion ​to Mayberry

How do we come to know Jesus? How do we meet the true Christ as revealed in the Scriptures? The Bethel Series seeks to address these questions with a unique overview approach of the Old and New Testaments. The student is immersed in the Bible and thereby establishes a base fo biblical knowledge. In the process of the study, the student lifts from the pages of Scripture the wonderful story of God moving through history and showing us the plan of salvation. Lay faculty have spent two years preparing to teach this Genesis – Revelation study in 42 lessons (21 each year). The Bethel Bible Series requires a two-year commitment (September through May) and is a part of our Wonderful Wednesday adult curriculum offering.

Plans are underway to offer a Thursday morning Old Testament Section beginning this fall. Please dial Extension 102 or e-mail the church office for more information.
