Sunday School

Sunday School starts at 10:00 a.m. and offers a variety of classes for adult members.
  • Led by Martha Jane Hudnall and Greg Jones, we invite you to join us if you are interested in lively conversation about Christian life in "the real world." Composed mostly of ages 30 to 40-somethings, the class is inclusive of all age groups and uses a video/discussion format, linking contemporary topics to teachings from the Bible. Occasionally we invite a guest speaker or have a participant-led discussion, but always there is honest discussion, energetic debate, and often humorous takeaways that inform our lives beyond First (Scots).

  • The Covenant Class is led by the Biblical, spiritual interests and suggestions of class members. Our class members have been particularly inspired by Dallas Willard, a theologian, professor, and spiritual mentor for all who hear him. Dallas wanted to help us understand how we can become “apprentices” of Jesus. For the 2016-17 class year, studies will continue to follow spiritual formation through Biblical study. The class is informal, often loosely guided to allow for discussion, but still moving forward, as we seek to deepen our relationship with God, the Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit. New class members are always welcome.

  • Led by Dr. Chris Hawk & Bob Baldwin, this class will use the PC(USA) curriculum Present Word. New members are welcome.

  • Led by Richard Daehler-Wilking & Boyce Cox this class will begin with the History of Christian theology. Following completion of that segment they will move on to Science and Christianity, following a Great Courses series of lectures that proves they are compatible.

  • Led by Greg & Clarissa McKenzie and Jon & Hayley Carter, the class will explore topics related to Christ-centered parenting and families. We will primarily be using The Bible as our guide to share and discuss timeless principles that work to help marriages and families flourish.

  • Led by Bob Dukes this contemporary class uses THE WIRED WORD curriculum to discuss important current events analyzed in a biblical context each week. Confronting the news with Scripture provides a framework for the discussion in applying the Bible to issues in today’s world.

Presbyterian Women

Our congregation has four Circles that meet once a month. All women of the congregation are invited to visit the Circles and join one that fits their schedule and interests. If there is no Circle to meet your needs, let us know so we can work together to form a new one.

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.
Presbyterian Women also sponsor fellowship events throughout the year including:

  • Fall Gathering: Kicks off the start of a new year with all the women of the church.
  • Valentine’s Luncheon: Honors the Summerville Presbyterian Village residents and other First (Scots) retirement facility residents.
  • Birthday Brunch: Celebrates and honors all Presbyterian Women.
  • Women’s Retreat: Provides time away for spiritual renewal and fellowship.
