You are invited to join us each week before worship at 9:45 am for Sunday School. There are no tests, no bad cafeteria food, and no report cards that get sent home to your parents. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about faith and life as a follower of Jesus. There are classes available for all ages and all interests. If you have a question about which class might be right for you, please give the church office a call (828-253-0765) and we will be happy to get you connected to the best class for you.
During the summer months (June, July, and August) only The Clarence Gilbert Class will be meeting. Even if you normally attend a different Sunday School class, all adults are welcomed to join with the Clarence Gilbert Class in their weekly study and discussion based on The Wired Word curriculum.
The Clarence Gilbert Class
This is an adult Bible study that welcomes all ages. This class is currently a combination of our youngest adults and some of our oldest adults. We study a curriculum called The Wired Word which examines current events in the news and relates them to various Scriptures in the Bible. Everyone is welcome in this class which meets downstairs in Educational Building at 10:00 am…and most importantly–good coffee is always available!
The following classes are not meeting during the months of June, July, and August:
Godly Play (Children’s Sunday School)
Our Sunday School program for children is really something quite spectacular. We offer “Godly Play” which is a unique program designed to help children of all ages learn more about Christian discipleship in their own way. Godly play meets on the third floor in rooms 303 (older children) and 304 (younger children). To learn more about Godly Play you can check out their website at www.godlyplayfoundation.org.
Our Safe Sanctuary Policy is here.
Western North Carolina Conference Safe Sanctuary training is available here.
Faith Meets Life Class (Adult)
The Faith Meets Life class brings together adults interested in the connections between Christian faith and important issues of daily life. It is collaborative and interactive; we use video and printed materials as texts, and topics over the years have included Forgiveness; the rise of Protestant Fundamentalism; the proliferation of early Christian texts and the development of the Biblical canon; and end of life issues. This class is mission-minded and reaches out to help others in the community. It also has a social side, with a semi-monthly dinner club at members’ homes in rotation. We welcome new members. The class meets in Brown Chapel on the second level of the Educational Building at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays.
