Adult Education

Sunday morning Sunday School, 10:00-10:50 each Sunday between Labor Day and Memorial Day First Presbyterian offers three distinct adult classes each Sunday morning.  Some classes are large, some are small. Some are lecture based, others are more discussion based.  Classes are primarily led by church members who feel called to lead their peers in this way and to grow in faith together.

Agape Class (formerly the Chapel and the Forum classes)

Meets in Room 101, main building. Disciples, Donuts, and Discussion in a traditional Bible study using the Present Word. Fellowship begins at 9:45am. Led by class members. Contact: Becky Jones

Journey Class

Bible and Breakfast
The Bible and Breakfast Sunday School class meets in Boney Hall in the Cameron Center.

The Averette Lecture is an endowed annual lecture series at First Presbyterian Church. Each January a well renowned preacher or scholar visits First Presbyterian Church for a weekend.  In addition to offering a lecture, the Averette speaker, preaches at Sunday morning worship services.  This annual lecture provides the First Presbyterian Church family with exposure to issues outside of the Wilmington area and facing the Church today.

The church offers many opportunities for adults to grow and learn both through the resources on our Adult Education Resources page and here at church. We believe that our Christian Education never ends.  We have never arrived as disciples of Christ but are always learning and growing in our faith and life.
