Sunday School

Sunday School classes for those 2 years old through 12th grade are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 10:30 AM from September through May. Classes are led by caring and experienced teachers who enjoy sharing God’s Word with our children! We will be using Illustrated Ministry’s “An Illustrated Invitation: Joining God at Work in the World” curriculum, which highlights biblical stories from the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament. If you’re interested in joining us, please contact Pastor Melissa (melissa@firstpresbelair.org) or Director of Children’s Ministry Kate Ciufo (kate@firstpresbelair.org). Please contact Kate for the 2022-2023 Children’s Ministry Safety Guidelines.

Vacation Bible School

VBS is designed and created by a team of individuals that love reaching out into our community!  VBS is something we look forward to every summer.  Children in pre-k through 5th grade are invited to join us for a week of fun, including crafts, outdoor activities, music, and Bible lessons.

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation Classes are held annually and offer an opportunity for students in 8th-12th grades to dig into their faith!  We wrestle with difficult questions, study God’s Word, learn about the history of the church and of our denomination, and have a lot of fun doing it!  At the end of Confirmation classes, students are officially eligible to become members of First Presbyterian Church and are invited to take that next step in their journey of faith.
