growing in christ

At First ARP, we seek to be people who follow the calling of Christ . . . ultimately, to take up our cross and serve Him.  We do this by following the example of the Great Commission (calling):  making disciples of all people groups, baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and then teaching them to obey all that He has commanded.

Simply put, we try to do this by discipling one person at a time--life-on-life discipleship.  However, we also emphasize gathering together as God's people in order to be fed, led, and wed to Jesus our Lord.  Below, you will find the regular opportunities that we have each and every week to grow in Christ and help others to grow in Christ.


Sunday Mornings - 10:00 am

Sunday School Classes are offered for all ages from infants to adults. Our children and youth are grouped according to age/grade. Eight adult classes are offered, each using different curriculum and teaching styles.  Four classes use The Gospel Project curriculum, the same curriculum our children and youth study. Beginning with Genesis, this study goes through the Bible over the course of three years, focusing on the truth of the gospel throughout the Old and New Testaments. Each week, families will study the same Scripture, opening up avenues for discussions together of God’s truth.  Four additional adult classes study a variety of topics, including The Heidelberg Catechism, specific books of the Bible and topical studies.
