The Sunday School program at First United Methodist Church is designed to meet the needs of not only our youngest preparatory members, but also our most senior members and, of course, all ages and interests in between. Below you will find a listing of the current Sunday School classes and a brief description of their course of study, size and average ages. We hope and trust you will find one or more classes that meet the needs for your Bible study. If not, we would be pleased to talk with you about beginning a new class and in making space available.
