Classes & Programs

Career Transition Resources
(Christian Education Wing)

First Pres is offering free resources and consulting for people looking for new employment opportunities. Our Career Transition Resources program helps our members and the larger community deal with one of the realities that has come about during the last few months: increased involuntary job loss. Experienced HR members are available to help with such actions as resume building, practice interviewing, career planning, and more.

If you would like to be connected with our Career Transition Team, or know of others who might want career guidance, please send an email to [email protected]. You will be contacted shortly thereafter to confidentially discuss how we can best help you.

Next Career Planning Course

Wednesdays, February 1, 8, 15, 22 and March 1, 8, 15, at 7:00 pm

This six-week class covers the most important cornerstones of your job search or career journey, including self-assessment, budgeting, resume building, marketing, networking, interview preparation, and negotiations. Whether you’re on the hunt for a new job or seeking a change in your career path, you don’t have to face these challenges alone. Sign up now! Register by January 31.

(Chapel)

Teachers present multi-week series on scripture, Christian books, and spiritual topics that are relevant to the Christian journey. These series are separate and apart from our Sunday morning adult education with offerings intended to provide different perspective from the Christian worldview.

RATIFICATION OF THE CHRISTIAN CANON: OUR NEW TESTAMENT

Wednesdays, January 11 – February 15
7:00 pm / Sanctuary / Dr. Donald Kaasch
• How did the Christian Canon come into being?
• Did it fall out of the sky on Easter Monday?
• Who decided what was in it?
• Who wrote what was included?
• Where did they write it?
• Were there other writings to choose from?
• When was the Canon ratified into what we know?
All of this and much more will be covered from a historical perspective. Join in on the discussion and learn things you just might want to know.

Adult volunteers will take the kids from Fellowship Hall to the Sanctuary and then from the Sanctuary to Kids Connect. For more information contact Nick Pulikowski.

Kids Connect
