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 on Sundays

at 10:00 am:

Ketchersid Sunday School Class:

This 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. All ages are welcome.


Upper Room
This class has adults from 19-65, singles, and married. The mixture of ages adds to the richness of our study and conversations. The group enjoys meeting outside of class. We enjoy doing life together and hold each other accountable outside of church. It is an interactive class where everyone is encouraged to share their insights, but it is not required. We have studied books together, but mostly we do topical studies and rely on the Word of God to guide every class. Come and join us. We would love to have you!
