We Like Education!

Ever since John Calvin founded in 1559 what is now the University of Geneva, we Reformed people have been internationally known for our interest in education and academic things.

Here at First Reformed Church we share the modern conviction that learning is a lifelong process. So even if it’s sometimes difficult to sustain great Sunday School enrollment numbers, we try nevertheless.

Currently, we have three children enrolled in our Sunday School. In addition, we have one Confirmation Class student and a rather active adult education class.

And here is our schedule:

  •  Our Sunday School class meets on the first Sunday of each month for 30 minutes prior to worship. The next meeting is on June 1 at 10:00 AM. Parents are encouraged to sit in with the class.
  •  Confirmation is scheduled for Pentecost Sunday June 8 during worship at 10:30 AM. Make sure to attend and to encourage our student Devon Wade!
  • Adult Education “First Wednesdays will meet on June 4 at 7:00 PM. We will be reading a few paragraphs on our congregation in Diarmaid MacCulloch, Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years.
