Adult Ministries

Grow with us at Shelby Presbyterian Church. We invite adults to participate in the life of the church in many ways and at many levels.

Our emphasis is on Christian education, which helps prepares us to serve Christ in the world around us. In addition to weekly services, adults will typically have seven different educational opportunities to choose from on Sunday mornings. Most classes run from September to late May at 9 a.m. Some adult classes continue during the summer.

Members and guests alike are encouraged to find a class. If you are new to Shelby Presbyterian, you are invited to visit any and all classes before deciding on the format and topic that best suits your interests and needs.
