What was once Adult Religious Education, is now Adult Faith Development!  We have a full lineup of program offerings this year, for adults at every age and stage in life - everything from the practical, to the intellectual, to the spiritual.  See below for more information on what is happening this season.  Check back for updates as the seasons change.

Need childcare to attend one of our events?  Don't fret, unless otherwise noted below, childcare can be made available when requested via the registration form by 2 or more families.

Winter Programming


Harvest the Power
This is a leadership development program for congregational lay leaders.  This program will run for 4 Thursdays in October, January, and May, exploring questions such as “Who are we?” “What ends do we serve?” and “What way will we lead?”  While this program is invitation only, those who are interested should notify Rev. Connie by the first Thursday in January via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Year Long Programming


Sharing Circles

These discussion groups, which meet once a month at a standing time and location, align programming across ministries (e.g. Worship and Adult Faith Development), deepen connections among participants, and invite spiritual growth.  This year's monthly themes are our six sources.  Unfortunately, registration for Sharing Circles has closed.


Adulting Classes
These classes, offered once a month, on a three month rotation, will help teens, adults, and seniors, respectively, address the practical problems in their lives.  Here are winter's offerings (click on the fliers to register)...

End of Life Planning 1

Examining X

Once a month, seniors, adults and teens are invited to examine and explore a topic important to First Church, Cincinnati, or the World with our Examining “X” series.  December's Examining "X" has been cancelled in anticipation of the busy holiday season.  Here are January and February's offerings (click on the fliers to register)...
