Christian Formation is an ongoing priority at Manassas Presbyterian Church (MPC). As Christians, we are committed to growing spiritually through a continuing study of scripture, spiritual development, and applied Christian values in our daily lives. A variety of programs and classes are designed to support the full range of congregational members, adults as well as children of all ages. Many of our classes are offered in conjunction with Sunday worship, however, courses of interest are periodically offered in the evening. We invite you to join our church family and participate in the following opportunities to grow your faith. To learn more, please feel free to talk to our Director of Education Ministries.
