Sunday School Classes


Growing in our faith together is an important part of First United Methodist Church. One way we grow together is by gathering in groups to study, connect, and pray together. People of all ages gather before worship for Sunday School. Whether you are a member or not, you are invited to visit any of our on-going adult Sunday school classes. Our current classes gather at either 9:30am or 10:00am, which makes it easy for you to also attend one of our Worship Services at  8:00am, 9:00am or 11:00am. 

 

In gathering together, we are transformed by God's grace through the study, praying, and fellowship of the class. We invite you to become part of one of our classes so that you may be transformed. Visitors are welcome in all classes. 

CLASS OFFERINGS:

Kerygma
Sundays, 9:30am | Room 233S | Lisa Robinson | 719-331-5999

This class is a “practical application of Christianity by a group of people who know how difficult that is and who know they are less than perfect” (mission statement). One of the class’s rules for the road together is: “assume good will” of each other. We welcome visitors to our group!
