Small Groups and Classes
Since each of us is moving on a continuum of faith – from curious and cautious to totally in love with our Creator and the new life given through Christ – there are different small groups to meet different needs. The main question to ask is: what type of small group would motivate me to rearrange my schedule?
Do you need:
- Encouragement from others who are in a similar life stage?
- Deeper Christian friendships that provide accountability?
- Support through a life transition or difficult season of life?
- People who will encourage you to live out your faith at work?
- A group with whom to pray and play?
To find a small group that is right for you, call our church office to arrange a connection conversation to help you find a great small group fit, (970) 482-6107.
Gifted in Leadership? Small group leader positions are open to all church members who have the gift of leadership and a passion for serving as a small group facilitator. If this is a place where you’d like to serve, please contact Mary Krings, Center Leader for Discipleship and Spiritual Formation.
First Presbyterian Church is committed to cultivating a Christ-centered community in which we come together to better know God's truth and show God's love. We are committed to providing opportunities for adults of all ages to discover and experience deeper heart and mind knowledge of the Word of God in Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures and the unique theology of the Reformed tradition, and the relevance of faithful discipleship in today's complex world. We hope that you will feel welcome in our midst and join a class that will help you discover and connect more with God and new friends.

- Christ's Birth: A Cultural and Historical Preparation for Advent*
Leader: Cheryl Toliver
“Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way...” (Matthew 1:18). It’s the most repeated story in the Bible. During Advent we hear it over and over – or do we? Come learn about the historical, cultural, social, and political context to the biblical texts on Christ’s birth, and it may make you think differently about Christmas and how we celebrate it. *Note: This is a
