Adult Sunday School

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness. Tim. 3:16


The Adult Sunday school classes at First & Calvary offer adults of all ages the opportunity to grow in their faith and strengthen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Sunday school classes are both educational and pastoral in nature. We “equip the saints for the work of the ministry” by providing a wide variety of curriculum and bible study. The curriculum is Christ-centered, scripturally based, and consistent with reformed theology. Sunday school classes meet from 9:45-10:45 am.

Below is a list of the classes we offer:
