The Carrick class is one of the more diverse church school classes as First Presbyterian. We have a wide variety of age groups and backgrounds.  For this reason, we study a wide range of materials that include some intense bible study, theological book reviews and topical studies such as church history, cultural issues and scriptural context.  We also are fortunate to occasionally bring in outside speakers from the Univ. of Tennessee, other congregations and the Presbytery at large. We would love to have any visitors that are new to First Presbyterian Church or maybe have been lifelong members that have never “plugged in” to a church school class.



We return to our Study of Genesis to finish out this year and we would love to have you join us in Classroom 1 under the chapel. We are looking at stories that some of us learned as children and trying to see what they mean for our lives today as we continue on our own faith journey.
