Adult Ministries at First Presbyterian




This growing group of mid-20’s to mid-40’s adults (both singles and couples) are working their way through the Bible in chronological order. Jesus called for his disciples to be the salt of the earth. Just as they were called, we are called. How are we going to be the salt? We dive deeper into the Word to better understand our calling. We want the world to know that we stand with God…that we are not conforming to the pressures of this world, but standing to preserve the Word Of God.


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. The Journey class is a loving and supportive group of disciples 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.


Comprised of adults from their late 30's, a member or guest teacher leads the weekly Connections 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.


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.


Each Monday and Thursday morning, a group of women gather in our Narthex for yoga, featuring flow yoga/power yoga. Seasoned participants flow between challenging postures to get their heart rate moving along with balancing, stretching, and breathing. The Yoga Ministry is for women of all ages! Donna Kerns, our church receptionist, can give information about dates and the cost of each 6-8 week session. 



Men of all ages are invited to gather in the PAD Building on Wednesday mornings (Labor Day - Memorial Day) from  7 a.m. to 8 a.m. for a Fellowship Breakfast. The complimentary breakfast is hosted by rotating participants and our Senior Minister or Minister of Visitation offer a devotion.
