Christian Education is an important part of the life of First Presbyterian Church. Classes and activities are available for the youngest child to the oldest adult. On Sunday, children, youth, and adult Sunday school classes are available at the 9:30 a.m. hour. Following worship, twice a month, children and youth meet for fellowship and structured activity. Communicants’ class for youth is also available yearly. Koinonia, an adult group, meets on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss a book or study of their choosing. Prime Time Wednesday is held once a week during one month each summer from 4 to 6 p.m. for children ages three to eleven.
In 2006 “Moments to Remember” was inaugurated at First Presbyterian Church. The event, scheduled near Valentine’s Day, was conceived as a chance to remember special moments in the lives of church members as well as a fundraiser to benefit the youth camps and conferences fund. The first event included dinner, a photo display of member memories, and entertainment provided by congregation members.
“Moments” has continued in its traditional vein, but it has become an occasion celebrated not only by FPC-Clifton but by the community as well. The event has been presented in several venues including the Bosque Art Center, White Horse Station, and has now returned to the church’s facilities. Dinner is still served by the children and youth of the church with the meal followed by entertainment; however, the monies raised now support camps and conferences for all ages. Entertainment has included a rendidtion of “Greater Tuna,” a performance by “The Grace Notes,” and nostalgic variety shows featuring church and local talent. The response to “Moments” seems to guarantee its continuance.
