Stained Glass

We currently offer five different adult Sunday School classes, each one open to any adults who wish to join them.  Newcomers to our Sunday School program are encouraged to visit all of the classes before deciding which best fits their interests.  The descriptions below reflect each class's make-up at the time of this writing.

Prior to Sunday School, a general assembly is held at 9:30 in J.O.Y. Hall.  All adults are invited to participate in this time of sharing, worship, and fellowship prior to Sunday School classes.


Adult Bible Study Class

This class is a caring group of mature and retired adults, (mostly ages 50-90), both singles and couples. Lessons are focused on Bible study based on The Adult Bible Studies series. It is a teacher led class with several rotating teachers.

Covenant Class

A small, intimate group of couples and singles ranging in age from 45-65 make up this Bible study group. The class begins with fun, informal visitation, and prayer requests. The lesson format consists of a lecture and discussion. Lessons are taken from the Cokesbury Adult Bible Study series. This class is ideal for relaxed Sunday Schoolers who like to visit before the lesson.

Journey Class

This class is a diverse, discussion-oriented group of believers whose choice of study materials range from scripture based literature to thought-provoking contemporary issues. Whatever the study, the focus of the class is to enhance understanding of God’s Word while actively attempting to serve His purposes through support of each other, the church, and community.
