Sunday School

We have Sunday School for all ages at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday (September through May). All are welcome at our adult, youth and children’s classes.

Upcoming Study Opportunities

Confirmation Class

7th Grade and up

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Confirmation is a time when youth accept for themselves the vows that were made on their behalf at their baptism. Confirmation classes cover church history, doctrine and government. More importantly, confirmation classes provide an opportunity for youth to explore and grow in their faith as they become full members of the United Methodist Church. Class will meet every Tuesday at 4 p.m. starting on Jan. 8, until June.

Bible Study: The Gospel of Mark

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Rev. Mark will be conducting a five-week Bible Study on the Gospel of Mark on Tuesday evenings, Jan. 15 through Feb. 12. Classes will begin at 7 p.m. and end by 8:30 p.m. All are welcome and there is no cost for the class, but please sign up on the office door before Jan. 13 so we are sure to have enough materials for all.

Sunday School for all ages:

Elementary:  K–5th Grade, taught by Sarah Jackson.  Sarah teaches classic Bible studies each week, keeping the kids engaged using activities, crafts, fun games and science experiments.  

Middle School:  5th-8th Grade. This class is learning to navigate the Bible using the Sparkhouse “Connect” curriculum. The class started Creation story in Genesis and are working through the all of the major Bible stories.

High School/Young Adult Sunday School:  Grade 9th -12 and all recent High School graduates who wish to continue to be involved. The youth in this class are learning basic Christian beliefs and how to be disciples of Christ, based on the Apostles Creed and Romans Chapter 12.  

Traditional Adult Bible Study: Our adult class meets in the Choir Room (right off the parking lot); and usually discusses some aspect of the Bible, theology or current events. Most Sundays, this class is taught by Craig Mueller using DVD discussion series and works by popular theologians including Adam Hamilton and Max Lucado to learn God’s Word and how to apply it.  On occasion, our Stephen Leaders lead the class.

Disciple Bible Study: This evening scripture study class is taught by our Pastor.  There is usually a Fall series and a Spring series, each lasting about 16 weeks.  

Justice & Witness: This class is held on approximately monthly basis.  Discussion in each class focuses on a current social issue.

Annual Sunday School Mission Project: Each year, our Sunday School classes choose a mission project and work all school year to raise money and collect items to donate. Past mission projects have included helping those affected by hurricanes, refurbishing a well in Kenya, purchasing backpacks for kids through the Cleveland Food Bank, providing supply kits for tornado relief, sponsoring a child through Compassion International and donating supplies and money to help care for the animals at the Berea Animal Shelter.

This year, they have chosen to help a child by purchasing a service dog through 4 Paws For Ability. 4 Paws enriches the lives of children with disabilities by training and matching them with quality, task-trained service dogs which provide increased independence for children and assistance to their families. Our goal is to raise $6,000 to help one child get a little bit closer to their goal!
