Adult Sunday School Classes

God's goal for us is to become mature adults--to be fully grown, measured by the standard of the fullness of Christ...by speaking the truth with love, let's grow in every way into Christ. From Ephesians 4:13,15

Sundays from 9:45 - 10:45 am

The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. We were created for connection – with God and with one another. Yet each of us must take our own path, one where God is leading us to grow deeper in faith and become more like Christ each day. At First United Methodist Church, we believe that Bible study and Christian fellowship are essential to the life and ministry of our entire congregation. One means by which we provide this opportunity is through Sunday school. Every Sunday morning at 9:45, there are groups for adults that vary in size, age range, and topics studied.

If you have further questions, please call Rev. Susan Lupo at 931-526-2177, ext. 203.
