Adult Learning

We value conversations about how the biblical narrative intersects with our own faith lives. Classes are facilitated by ministers and lay leaders. Please join us as we nurture and explore our spiritual lives.


Adult Bible Study
Sundays, 9:30-10:30 AM | Library

The group is facilitated by IB Ekure, David Kipin, Doug Schwalbe, George Varughese, and David Richardson. Come and join our lay-led adult Bible study on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. This group welcomes new members and meets every week prior to our worship service to explore how 1st century texts relate to our 21st century life in New York City. All are welcome!


Mid-week Bible Study
Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 PM | Library

Introduction to the New Testament and 1 Corinthians

Throughout the month of January, we will study the overarching themes and books of the entire New Testament. If you are new to Bible Study or enjoy learning about the trajectory of the Biblical narrative, this series is great opportunity to learn more about how these books compliment and challenge each other. 

Beginning in February, we will examine in greater depth one of the most popular letters in the New Testament, 1st Corinthians. If you have ever been to a wedding and wondering how 1 Corinthians 13 sounds in its larger context or if you would just like to learn more about the style and form of Paul’s letter, this part of the series will provide depth to our learning about this.


Presbyterian Women
The first Sunday of each month, 12:30-1:30 PM | Library

All women of the church are encouraged to join us! Meetings include Bible study and discussion as well as planning for service projects and other activities. Our Presbyterian Women chapter is part of the national PC(USA) Presbyterian Women network, an organization nurturing faith and building community by working for justice and peace.
