Adult Learning & Fellowship

The goal of Adult Education at the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville is to help each person grow in faith, know the Bible better, think more seriously about core beliefs, and do all of this in the company of fellow Christians.

Knowledgeable leaders guide Sunday morning adult education classes. Small group studies provide opportunities to dig deeper into a topic while getting to know others better. Annual men’s and women’s retreats held off-site are times of fellowship, worship, laughter and spiritual growth. Fellowship groups foster connections and nurture Christian friendships. Through each offering, we invite you to explore how we are called, equipped and sent into the world as God’s people.
