The New Hempstead Presbyterian Church has Christian Education opportunities for young and old. These include lively adult education and discussion groups and Sunday morning classes for children.

Adult Education

The New Hempstead Presbyterian Church has adult study groups. All meet weekly from September through June. The Adult Bible Study is led by our pastor the Rev. Dr. Lori Knight-Whitehouse and meets after service every Sunday around 12:30 PM. Anyone is welcome to join on any Sunday.

The Race and White Privilege Book Discussion meets on the second Wednesday of every month to discuss material relating to racism and white privilege. Presently, the group is exploring White Fragility:Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. Previous selections have included:

 

Children

Elder Pauline Mattis is the chair of Christian Education. The program for children is taught by a rotating team of teachers who work together to develop a Biblically-based program of instruction. Presently, children attend Worship through the “Children’s Experience” after the first reading and then go into the Colonial Room with their teachers.

Confirmation Classes

In our Presbytery, the confirmands attend a joint confirmation class with other students from Presbyterian churches around the area. This allows them to hear a variety of speakers from different churches and to experience what it means to be Christian from people with a variety of points of view. Each confirmand is assigned a mentor from the church.
