Adult Education

Pittsford Presbyterian has multiple opportunities for adults to explore and expand their faith. All are welcome! Here are the current offerings:

Sunday, 10:00am - Adult Study Group

This class offers a variety of topics depending on the needs and interest of the participants. Recent studies have included a Serendipity Bible Study, Interpretation Bible Studies, exploration of Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life book and discussions around a book by Philip Yancey. The group rotates study facilitators and meets in the Library.

First Sunday of the Month:

  • Men's Prayer Breakfast at Mendon Ponds Park April - November, at a member's home during winter months.
  • Parents of Confirmation Students, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm in room 200. Concurrent with the Confirmand Mentor time, the parents of our confirmation students gather to learn how to assist their son or daughter in the process of internalizing their faith. Parents review what their child is learning and then discuss ways to encourage them along the journey of confirming the promises of baptism.
