James Park Bible Class

James ParkA class of mostly senior men and women comprised of members of the former Rosa Scott and James Park Classes. They gather each week for hymns and systematic Bible study based on the uniform lesson for the week, presented in lecture form. This class follows quarterly publications by the Presbyterian Publishing Company and Union Gospel Press.

This class is named after Dr. James Park, the pastor of First Church after the Civil War, who led the church through the time of reconstruction. Many of the members of the James Park Class are veterans of World War II and are featured in Julie Wiest’s book, We Were There.

The James Park Class meets in the James Park Classroom, Floor 2.
