Sunday School Classes

Nursery School
A new class has started for our little ones! As of September 7th the children will learn about Noah, Jonah and the Whale, and Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors in a structured (and fun!) environment.
The Golden Nightingales
This class currently meets in the overflow room (adjacent to the sanctuary). Sunday School teachers use “The Cokesbury Quarterly” adult Sunday School material. This class is open to women of all ages. They will be studying in the books of Jeremiah, Habakkuk, Job, and Ezekiel with the study centering around hope.
The Mavericks
This class will be studying the Modern Parables. Each Parable will cover two weeks. Week One will be dedicated to understanding the parables. Week Two will be directed to Living the Parable.
The Good Samaritans
This class is largely a senior male class, but is attended by others. The Good Samaritans listen to lectures, study one book of the Bible at a time, and have a discussion. They meet in the Chapel across from the Sanctuary and are continuing their study on Genesis.
The Living Faith
This class would like to invite the congregation to join us in the basement, (across from the Youth) at 9:45A.M. where they will be studying the book, “We Make the Road by Walking”. Please contact Terrie Shaffer or Amy Wilfong for additional information.
Journey of Hope
This class is fairly new to the roster and is taught by Susie Brown. Journey of Hope will be studying the book, “Crazy Love”. Please join them in “The Aaron Room” (second floor overflow room) for a time of fellowship and learning.
Youth (6th to 12th grade)
Join our youth in the youth room in the basement of the church. Donna White and Dianne Wright will be completing the first study series in “Animate Faith”.
