New Sunday School Opportunity

First Presbyterian Church offers several Sunday School classes geared directly toward Young Adults. All classes begin at 9:45 A.M. Check them out below!

New Sunday School Opportunity: What does Jesus say about eternity? Does everyone go to heaven? Is there an “age of accountability?” Is Ghandi in hell?

Rob Bell wrote a book called Love Wins with the subtitle, “A book about heaven, hell, and the fate of every person who ever lived.” It earned him the title of heretic and the evangelical church in America tweeted things at him like, “Farewell Rob Bell.”

Francis Chan responded to Rob Bell’s book by writing, Erasing Hell. He subtitled his book, “What God says about eternity, and the things we’ve made up.” If Chan represents a more conservative tradition in the Christian faith, Bell certainly would represent a more liberal tradition.

In this Sunday school class we will first work through Bell’s book, taking the time to sit with the questions he poses around God, heaven and hell. Then we will take on Chan’s contribution to the conversation; weighing the two writings alongside of other voices and views in the Presbyterian tradition. The class meets in the Oak Hill School L-Wing, L-201.

Family Fellowship Class: This discussion-based class begins with a short community time followed by presentation on various topics from guest member speakers. The class focus is working our way through scripture with a focus on everyday life application. This fall we will discuss The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller. The following members will be leading: Jody Garvey, Scott McConnell, Chan Sheppard, Jeremy ShapiroThe class meets in the Jones Session Room, MW-203

If you are a single, newly married or a young parent, we are always looking for better ways to meet you where you are in your journey. We are always dreaming about additional Sunday School opportunities for our young adults, so please contact Jessie Yancey, Director of Young Adult Ministry, at  if you have any ideas.
