Sunday School is available for children preschool through grade 5 at 9:00 am from September through May.
We have a variety of short term and long term studies at First Presbyterian Church of Newton, as well as seasonal events including Advent and Lenten adventures, a Seder celebration, and Presbyterian Women's gatherings. Check the church calendar for upcoming events and programs.
Current studies include:
Sunday Evening Adult Study meets most Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm in Fellowship Hall for a shared meal, followed by the study from 6:30-8pm.
The group is currently discussing a book by Peter Enns, "The Bible Tells Me So: Why defending the Scripture has made us unable to read it." Enns has a quirky sense of humor, but a razor sharp mind and wonderful way of unfolding Scriptures.
Everyone who is vaccinated and boosted is welcome to attends. Social distancing and masks are required.
A Monday morning discussion group meets via Zoom, from 10:00 - 11:00 am. To get the Zoom link for the group, please call the church office.
Jubilee Women, a study for all women of the church meets on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. .
Youth group is open to youth in grades 6 to 12 and meets during the school year on Sunday evenings from 6-8 pm. A typical Sunday night includes dinner, a time of fellowship, devotions, and games. Here is an idea of some of our activities and events:
Pie Baking - we bake over 200 apple & pumpkin pies each November to be placed in Thanksgiving baskets for families in need in our community.
Annual Mission trip - each summer we take travel to a different city to help make home repairs for families who might not be able to make the repairs themselves.
We also prepare meals for Manna House, play laser tag, worship around the campfire, help paint Sunday School rooms, volunteer at the community food bank, host a Sweetheart Diner, go sledding and ice skating, and help with Vacation Bible School, just to name a few.
