Welcome to First Church Dayton. We are a thriving community of faith seeking to share with our neighbors and the world the hope we have in Christ Jesus.  Throughout every week we have opportunities to explore the scriptures, examine our personal relationship with God, encourage one another and reach out to others.  Won’t you join us on your journey of faith?


The following classes are
Sundays at 10:10 am:

Ketchersid Sunday School Class:

We meet in the library located on the north end of the Family Life Center.
The class studies books of the Bible using study guides by David Guzik  ( as well as other commentaries. The class takes a verse-by-verse approach to explore how the message was understood at the time it was written and how we can apply it to our lives. Each member's comments and experiences are an important part of the class. The class is lead by Diana Nevans. We have had members from age 12 to 90. All ages are welcome.


Upper Room

The “Upper Room” Sunday school class consists of people ages 20-65, single and married. We meet upstairs at the very end of the hallway. We study a variety of subjects and every class is devoted to the Word of God, illuminated by the Holy Spirit. This is a very interactive class where we all learn from each other. We also enjoy doing life together outside of class. The teacher of the class is Heather Sneed and she has taught the class for the last 15 years. She is passionate about teaching and studying the Word of God and earned her Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Moody Theological Seminary. 
Everyone is welcome in this class. 


Open Door Class

Adults of all ages are welcome. During the first few months of 2020 class members will study The Red Sea Rules by Robert J. Morgan. The book presents powerful and effective God-given strategies for coping with difficulties in life. Members will study scriptures which provide assurance of God’s control and protection during hard times.
