Sunday School 

NPPC currently offers five adult Sunday school classes which meet on Sunday morning at 10 a.m.

  • Disciples - The Disciples class studies the four Revised Common Lectionary texts for the current Sunday with a focus on the context of the passages, the implications of the original Hebrew and Greek languages, the history of how these passages have been interpreted by the church over the centuries, and some questions designed to lead into insights and appreciation for these scriptures. This class is led by class members and meets in Eastminster Hall.

  • Faith and Culture - The Faith and Culture Class seeks God at the intersection of our faith and the issues of everyday living. Its discussion format allows an honest and meaningful grappling with theology and modern society. Through studies of challenging and spirit-uplifting books and other media, we expand our knowledge and understanding of God and ask the question: How does our life impact our faith and vice versa? We support and encourage one another in works of service. Our view of God expands with every conversation. This group meets in Room 109 behind the Library. Contacts: Teal Willoughby - or Bill Savell -
  • Seekers of Seven - The Seekers cover a wide range of topics from the study of Scripture to books on theology, faith, and Christian responses to current issues. The class is taught by members and is primarily discussion-based. They meet in the Parlor.

  • Pathfinders - Pathfinders is a wide age group of 30s-50s who enjoy a conversation/discussion format.  The class focuses on the relationship between Christian teachings, scripture, and current issues.  Our curriculum transitions between book studies, lectionary-based studies, and faith-related current event publications like "The Wired Word".  The class meets in the newer wing of the church in room W-202. Contact Nick Bradford:
  • The Rest of Us - The Rest of Us class is a diverse group of adults - single, married, young children at home, grandchildren, lifelong Presbyterians, new Presbyterians, and those still seeking. Through discussion and study the class seeks to develop a faith that is active in our world. This class meets in room 206 on the third floor of the main building.
