Fall Offerings at First Cong

Participating in Adult Education opportunities at First Cong is one way we continue to learn as we engage our mind and heart for action in the world. It takes intention and effort to make space in our calendars for these classes, but the investment is worth it!  ~Ann Beaty

Join us on five consecutive Fridays, starting September 15-October 13, from 12:00-1:00pm. Learn more about reformer John Calvin, and how Carl came to his conclusions.
