Sunday School – 9:45 a.m. Sunday Mornings

Central offers Sunday morning learning opportunities for all ages. To learn more about our classes and opportunities, click on the ministries below.


Children & Family

Central seeks to provide a welcoming place for families with children, to help children know and feel the love of God, and to help parents guide their children in developing their faith.


Youth

Recognizing that this stage of development is especially formative in one’s faith, Central also seeks to provide several spaces for youth to learn, grow, connect, and ask questions. On Sunday mornings throughout the year, the youth can engage in a variety of Sunday school offerings, with age appropriate curricula for both middle and high school youth. A year-long confirmation class, typically for youth in eighth and ninth grades, occurs at least once every two years to prepare youth to join the church formally.


Young Adult

This small group is a growing and vibrant new ministry of Central, offered to people in their early 20s-to-early-30s. Central Young Adults gather once a month for some fellowship, food, and faithful conversation. All are welcome!

Adult

At Central, we believe that Christian education is a lifelong journey. In addition to gathering for worship, adults are encouraged to participate in classes on Sunday mornings.

Classes are offered every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. with a variety of topics from Bible study, to current issues, to theological questions. Ongoing adult classes with rotating leadership provide learning and fellowship opportunities. Special studies are also offered throughout the year.

Foodie Faith class begins March 1
As we enter the season of Lent, our Sunday fellowship lunches will become more inclusive. By offering whole-food, plant-based menus, Centralites with dietary restrictions will no longer be excluded. In conjunction with the lunches, a class, ‘Foodie Faith: A Lenten Study on How Our Theology Shapes Our Dietary Decisions | A Faith and Family Class’ will take place on Sunday mornings.
The 4-week study will address how we embody our theology and ethics with our dietary decisions. Each week will focus on a separate topic, exploring how our theology and food choices impact:
Week 1 (March 1): Physical and Mental Health
Week 2 (March 8): Care and Concern for Non-Human Animals
Week 3 (March 15): Environmental Ethics
Week 4 (March 22): Food Deserts and Social Justice
The class will meet Sundays from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in the parlor and is open to everyone.
Teachers: Abby Myers is a Licensed Psychologist and is Board Certified in Lifestyle Medicine; Jake Myers is a Professor at Columbia Theological Seminary. They have been following a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle for 3 1/2 years.

Small Groups 

Small groups provide a place for people at Central Presbyterian Church to socialize, learn, and serve together. With more than nine different small groups, there’s a place for everyone!
