Sunday School for Adults
Get to know people who share similar seasons of life and want to enrich their Christian journey by joining a Sunday School class.
All classes meet at 10 a.m. except Crosstalk, CUC, and Noah's Ark.
We live up to our name, Rejoice. Stop by any Sunday morning and you’ll hear a talkative, positive group who laugh a lot. We have existed since 1990 and are a diverse group who enjoys learning from each other in lively class discussions. Using a teaching team of five members from the class, we rotate through studies, usually by DVD presentations. Recent studies have included lessons from Max Lucado, Susan Robb, Andy Stanley, and N. T. Wright. We care for each other through prayer, meals, and plan to re-instate getting together in various homes soon. Come Rejoice with us!
Room 179, Sanctuary building
We enjoy the combination of singles and couples. We believe the mix keeps us compassionate and engaged beyond our individual experiences. We eagerly welcome new people as well as appreciate our longtime members. Outside of class we enjoy “Dinners for Eight,” a way of getting to know a smaller group of people in a casual, potluck, home setting. We also have fun at themed get togethers such as a Kentucky Derby Party, Summer Picnic, and Christmas Party. Meeting since 1972, our name reflects our interest in friendly and thoughtful discussions. We are grateful for Dennis Love who keeps our studies and speakers scheduled.
NOTE: Class is 9:30 -10:40 to accommodate choir
Room 246/248, Chapel Building
As seniors, we are a multi—experienced group who have lived through six or more decades. We are a close circle and make caring for and praying for each other a top priority. The class enjoys Bible-based lessons from a variety of teachers. Several of us sing in the Prime Time Singers. One of our favorite activities is our annual Christmas lunch. We call ourselves Seekers because we are never too old to learn something new from God’s word. Join us and let’s enjoy our golden years together. Grand and great-grandchildren pictures always welcome!
WHERE Room 250-52, Sanctuary building
We are a class of men and women on a journey of faith through relevant and in-depth Bible studies as well as current events. Studies from Adam Hamilton, Amy-Jill Levine, Tom Berlin and others continue to develop our lives in Christ. The name for our class comes from Ephesians 4:32: "Be ye kind one to one another.” We pronounce it Bi-ko’ ta. It has been our welcome mat and mission statement all thirty years of our existence. One of the smaller classes, we enjoy deepening our faith and would love to make new friends in the process.
Room 358, Chapel building
Even though we are the largest Sunday School class in the church with 100 plus members, we try to assimilate people quickly through smaller groups to meet special needs. Our single women enjoy meeting together regularly. Fourteen covenant groups meet weekly for Bible study and encouragement. An elected program committee plans class sessions to balance Bible teaching, missions, and life enrichment subjects. Our annual retreat, Mardi Gras party, and Christmas party are highpoints. Created in the early 1970’s, this class underwent a couple of name changes until we settled on the present one, Christians Under Construction. It fits our outlook on life and the reason so many are engaged regularly in mission outreach.
NOTE: Class begins at 9:45
Dining Room, Chapel building
Open View (35+)
If you enjoy discussing what you believe and why you believe it, we have a place for you. Even if you are still wrestling with faith questions, you’ll find us open to listen and join you in a journey to faith. We have explored critical issues facing Christians today using the Wesleyan Quadrilateral which examines Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience as the way to find out how we should live in this present age.
Room 139, Dodson Youth Building
Noah’s Ark (Developmentally Disabled Adults, all ages)
This special group of adults wins the award for the most enthusiasm for their class! They are excited about Jesus and showing their love and acceptance to each other. Whether by simple Bible story or a fun craft, these young adults to senior adults love to participate and learn together. Thirty years ago, forward thinking parents of children with special needs created the class because they wanted their children to enjoy a weekly, spiritual encounter as adults. An occasional outing such as bowling or a field day of fun sports, they never participate half-way. If you know of someone who would benefit from this class, contact Marsha Kennedy for more information.
Note: Class begins at 9:30 a.m.
