Adult Discipleship

Enroll… Attend… GROW!

Our faith formation is a life time journey.

At FPC, our goal is to equip all students — children, youth and adults — to go out into the world to make and mold disciples for Jesus Christ. Join the journey, making friends along the way, discovering new truths about God and yourself, and growing in discipleship!

All classes are open and you are invited to join any time.

SMALL GROUP STUDIES

First Presbyterian’s Adult Education Ministries strives to provide a broad menu of educational offerings. We hope that you will find an area of study that challenges you to grow in the knowledge and love of God. Offerings include Bible studies, church history, prayer, doctrines of the faith, book discussions, and guest lecture series. To register, please call the church office 843.448.4496.

MONDAY MORNING SCHOLARS

This small group meets regular during the year to study a variety of books. Series generally run 4 – 8 weeks.

The Source: A Novel, by James Michener. Through the discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, Michener vividly re-creates life in an ancient  Holy Land city and traces the profound history of the Jewish people—from the persecution of the early Hebrews, the rise of Christianity and the Crusades, to the founding of Israel and the modern conflict in the Middle East. The Source is a richly written saga that encompasses the history of Western civilization and the great religious and cultural ideas that have shaped our world.
