How Do I Meet People?

First Presbyterian Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at FPC

Contemporary Christian Studies

Referred to as the CCS Class: Beginning September

 
This adult Sunday School Class meets Sunday morning 11:00 – 12:00 following the 10:30 fellowship time. Summer break is May – Mid September
We use a variety of formats and topics. Formats include DVDs, lesson books & Bible Study. The subjects being studied last approximately 1-13 Sundays with volunteer participants taking turns leading the class.
 
 

Women’s Groups

Ruth, Rachel, and Lydia Circle’s

First Presbyterian Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church. Ruth Circle meets the second Tuesday of the month at 10:00 AM Rachel Circle meets the second Thursday of the month at 11:00 AM, and Lydia Circle meets every fourth Thursday of the month at 2:00 PM.
 
 

Men’s Group

Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. The FPC Men’s group meets the first Saturday of the month at 7:30 AM at the Java Hut, 13 N. Vermilion, Danville.

 

Primetimers

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of First Presbyterian provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet and enjoy fellowship time. Our Primetimers group meets the third Wednesday of the month for small trips in the area and lunch. Times vary due to trip requirements.

 

39’ers

The 39’ers is open to any age group that would like to come together for a time of fellowship and food. They meet on the second Friday of the month at 6:30pm.
 
 

 Purple Donut Gang

The Purple Donut Gang is an “unorganized” group of men that perform maintenance tasks around the church on Tuesday afternoons (about 1 pm) for an hour or so followed by adjournment to the Royal Donut shop for coffee and donuts.  Any man who can drink coffee (could be soda pop), eat donuts, and tell stories or solve the world’s problems is welcome.  Listeners are welcome, we have plenty of talkers.

 

Bible Study Groups

CCS Class-Pastor’s Bible Study-Meshach Bible Study

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, First Presbyterian Church has small bible studies held at the church at various times. The size of the groups vary. Our CCS Class (Contemporary Christian Study) meets on Sunday’s after the traditional service at 11:00am. The Bible Study group meets on Wednesday’s at 10:30am. The Meshach Bible Study also meets Wednesday’s at 9:30am.
 
 

Young Adults

College Age and New Edition

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of First Presbyterian Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people. FPC offers our young adults grades 12th-college age group, dinner and bible study Saturday night from 5:30-9:00. Every third Saturday they have movie night at FPC retreat site. Sunday night our Youth group grades 5th-11th grade has dinner and bible study from 5:30-7:30. On the 3rd Sunday they have dinner and bowling night. Through out the year our youth lead different fundraisers for the summer mission trip and other church activities from concerts to movies. God gives our Young Groups, new fun activities every month.
 
 

Knitwits

If you like to knit, or crochet, or do craft projects, you are welcome to join us we meet Tuesdays at 12:30 PM for an hour, except for the second Tuesday of the month. We make scarves, hats, mittens, and other things that are included in the Christmas baskets. We also have a lot of fun relaxing and talking.
