We are delighted that you are looking into growing in your faith through Sunday School! First United Methodist Church values life-long, continued learning that happens within Sunday School. Bible Study and wrestling with living our faith, while building relationship with other Christians is essential to our spiritual growth. We currently offer a multitude of Adult Sunday School classes, meeting on campus at 9:45 each Sunday (the first 15 minutes is a time of gathering and fellowship).

Below, you’ll find more information about each of our classes.
