Through study and sharing, we seek to be involved in God's deeper work of transforming our minds, our hearts and our world.

Each fall and spring, Adult Education offers a diverse program of theology and Scripture, spirituality and prayer, Christian history and contemporary issues in religious life. Our instructors come from Princeton Theological Seminary, Union Theological Seminary, New York Theological Seminary and other institutions, as well as from our own clergy, staff and mission partners.

Join us—all classes are free and open to all. Advance registration is not required.


Founded in 1950, the Employment Advisory program at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest employment groups in the city. Our mission is to help people seeking employment or exploring new career options, as well as those who want to stay up to date in a fast-changing job market.

Employment Advisory programs are generally scheduled on the third Tuesday of the month from 6:30 until 8 pm. All programs are free and open to all. For more information, and to join our email list, contact us at [email protected].


"Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus" is the theme of Vacation Bible School 2018, happening Monday through Friday, Aug. 13-17, in the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center. 

At "Shipwrecked," kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. "Shipwrecked" is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch and even taste! Sciency-fun gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible songs and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life and participate in a hands-on mission project.

Children from age 3 (and potty trained) to entering fifth graders are invited to a weeklong adventure to explore Scripture while having fun! Membership in Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church is not required—so invite friends and neighbors to come along! 

Walk-ins are welcome all week long. VBS takes place from 9:30 am until noon each day. The cost is $80 per child or $140 per family (two children or more).
