Sunday School Classes
Sunday School is a great opportunity to get plugged in to a smaller group of believers who fellowship and grow together in Christ. Classes meet each Sunday at 9:45 am between the contemporary and traditional services. EVERYONE is welcome! You can find more information about our current classes below.

Bridge Class: Meets upstairs in Room 208
This class is filled with a wonderful mixture of believers, some single and some married couples, some in college and some beyond those college years with young families. The class was originally formed to help young people through transitional periods of their lives. As the years have passed, the class has taken a life of its own as a community of believers looking to study, discuss, debate, and grow in faith. Ginger Herring has taught the class for more than a decade, incorporating in-depth Bible studies and studies that focus on social life issues faced today.
Good News Class: Room 205, but currently meeting in Cheek Hall and on Zoom
In the mid-1980s, a group of young married couples joined together to study, work, and grow together in their faith. Now the group ranges in age from late 40s to 70s. Many are empty nesters with prayers for grandchildren, children, and aging parents. The group thinks of each other as family, praying for, encouraging, and supporting each other. The door is always open for guests to join in their discussion and be part of this spirit-filled group.
Grace Class: Room 203
Made up of couples and singles in their retirement or near retirement years, the Grace class explores scripture using the Methodist Cokesbury curriculum. Topics focus on the meaning for those living during the time of scriptrue and how it relates to our lives today. Discussions are open and lively with varied perspectives. When there are no COVID concerns, the group enjoys lunch together on the second Sunday after church and annual socials including a Spring Ice Cream Social and a Christmas party. Join the Grace class and explore the Bible and share in the joys and burdens as you grow together.
Koinonia Class: Meets upstairs in Room 202
Koinonia, which means "fellowship" in Greek, was chosen as the name of this multi-generational class when it began many years ago. It reflects the mission of the class to be a group of "like-minded" members desiring to study Scripture and grow together in their Christian walk. They believe that the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and they attempt to keep their attention on the Word of God and how it applies in the twenty-first century. They comprise a small group who care about, pray for, and encourage each other, rejoice and weep together. All are welcome!
NEW Community: Meets upstairs in Room 206
NEW Community is a group of mostly married couples in their 30s and 40s. Most have children, but every person who wishes to experience a personable and casual discussion environment is welcome. Group discussion and Bible studies focus on living out our faith in practical ways, parenting, marriage, living in community, and walking with Christ in a busy world. The class is known for throwing awesome parties. From the Back to School Block Party to an impressive New Year's Eve fireworks display, the group lives out a NEW community: living for Christ, encouraging each other, and thriving in friendship. All are welcome!
Open Door Sunday School Class: Meets upstairs in Room 204
This class was founded in the late 1950s as the young married class, but the members have grown together over the years and continue to be faithful in leading the church. Most members are now 60+, but people under 60 are welcome too! The Sunday School lesson is given by class members and/or guests on a rotating schedule. All are invited!
Trogdon Curtis Wesley Rhoads Class: Meets downstairs in Room 119
A wonderful mix of older adults, ranging from their 50s to their 90s, with most in retirement but some still working, singles, couples, and widows make up this close-knit group that feels more like family. Different class members lead the group each Sunday. They welcome you to join the caring group of friends represented in this class!
