First (Scots) Presbyterian Church


Adult Sunday School

Sunday School starts at 10:00 a.m. and offers a variety of classes for adult members.

This class studies what scripture means to us today. Members enjoy lively discussion.  We will study the book of Romans. Please feel free to use a commentary, your own Bible, or just come and use the class Bibles

Leaders: Chris Hawk and Bob Baldwin

Our class mission is strengthening faith through understanding. This class will explore the second half of Professor Amy-Jill Levine’s “Great Figures of the New Testament” in the Great Courses series.  We will begin with a study of the people Jesus lived among. As in the first half, we shall continue to look also at related topics in Professor Jodi Magness’s Great Course “Jesus and His Jewish Influences”, as well as look at some of the always entertaining and lively writings of Josephus.

Leader: Richard Daehler-Wilking

This class is open to anyone as we have members from all phases of life. Our weekly conversation topics can vary widely as we use a variety of teaching materials (podcasts, DVD series, study books and articles) to help us study the Word of God and its practical application to our everyday lives. Class structure is informal in that we try to allow 10-15 minutes of fellowship time before beginning the lesson. Come when you can!

Leaders: Clarissa and Greg McKenzie 

This class uses The Wired Word Bible curriculum which links the latest headlines and current events to appropriate scripture. Class members get a weekly email which includes everything you need for the study. Please contact the class leader to receive the weekly emails.

Leaders: Ann and Bob Dukes

According to the International Bible Society, Moses wrote in “old Hebrew” as was much of the Old Testament except for a few chapters in Aramaic.  The New Testament was primarily in Greek. We have been blessed by the scholarship of Wycliffe, Tyndale, Hus and others, largely at the cost of their lives, in Medieval Europe, to be able to read our Bibles for ourselves in many common languages. Join us for a six-to-eight-week DVD led introduction of “Medieval Heroes of the Faith”. The first class is September 17th.

Presbyterian Women

First (Scots) Presbyterian Women strive to unite all women of the church in Christian fellowship through small groups and gatherings. Presbyterian Women are organized into small groups, called Circles, that meet monthly to provide an inclusive, caring community of women united in Christian fellowship. A Circle is a place where faith is nurtured and growth takes place through worship, study, friendship, and outreach. It is a place where women encourage and support one another to bear personal witness to Christ in the family, in the congregation, in the community, and around the world. Through their activities and donations, the Circles support the Charleston Atlantic Presbytery, Thornwell Home and School for Children in Clinton, SC, Presbyterian Village of Summerville residents, our church’s freshmen college students, special offerings, pastoral care and local missions. Circles often have specific projects that they support as well.

Our congregation includes four Circles that meet monthly. All women are invited to visit individual meetings as they explore which fits interests and schedule. If there is no Circle to meet your needs, let us know so we can work together to create a new one.

Additional information on Presbyterian Women can be found on their website
