The First Episcopal District Church School is composed of the Philadelphia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Western New York, Bermuda, and New England Annual Conferences. Our Church School mission is to "teach, train, and nurture all ages in God's word; preparing them for Christian service by emphasizing Christian principals, Doctrine and Discipline of the African Methodist Episcopal Church".
The First District Church School prepares Superintendents and teachers to fulfill the African Methodist Episcopal Church School mission through preparing our teachers in Biblical concepts, leadership and teaching techniques. Our Episcopal Guideposts are the standards by which we guide ourselves.

"All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations... Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you..." Matthew 28:18.
These are the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the rallying cry for us as Disciples of Christ. To seek the Kingdom of God, to seek righteousness, to seek those who do not know Jesus and teach them the word.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
