Introducing CREDO: The Essentials of Christian Theology
This spring Adult Education introduces CREDO, a series of classes that dives into the essentials of Christian theology. The classes are intended to review traditional doctrine, connect it to the contemporary Church, and inspire participants to clarify their own understanding of what it means to be a Christian.
CREDO will be part of the core curriculum of Adult Education at FAPC, with future classes taking up other “stumbling blocks” of our Christian heritage. CREDO classes will rely in part on Alister McGrath’s Theology: The Basics (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011). Copies are available in The Shop at FAPC.

In 2010, 11 women from Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church traveled to Egypt. They visited Pharaonic, Christian and Muslim Egypt, they visited affluent areas and impoverished areas, and they observed how FAPC's benevolence funds have been at work in local communities. Come hear their stories of Egypt and find out how, and why, this mission trip goes on.
A Historical & Architectural Tour of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church
Derek Maddalena and Gail Crane
Sunday, May 12 • 12:30 pm, Kirkland Chapel
First offered in 2011, this insider's tour of the history, architecture and infrastructure of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church has become a mainstay of the Adult Education program. Gail Crane, a member of the church for nearly 50 years, and Derek Maddalena, director of facilities, are your guides through our sacred spaces and a few private places. Participants have the option of climbing inside our historic clock tower, where the original clockworks (powered only by gravity and a large box of stones) are still in use, 138 years since they were installed. Visitors to the clock tower are urged to wear flat, rubber-soled shoes.
