Adult Ministry

At First Pres, Lincoln we put an emphasis on education and learning from the perspective of faith development and discernment. Through all we teach and study, we are open to the movement of the Holy Spirit, guiding us toward an ever more faithful understanding of Scripture, Jesus, the church, and our part in God’s on-going ministry and mission in our world. We are a community where questions are honored and respected, where differences of opinion, political persuasion, or theological outlook enhance our understanding of God’s gracious activity in our lives, our community, and the world. As a church in the Reformed tradition, we are always open to how God is doing a new thing in our midst. Our learning opportunities are geared toward helping everyone grow in their faith and respond to the needs of our neighbors.
