Sunday School Classes for Adults
- Parlor Class
This class will be using the book You Can’t Ask That!: 50 Taboo Questions about the Bible, Jesus, and Christianity by Christian Piatt, which tackles 50 of the most provocative, challenging, and hard-to-answer questions about faith and religion with thoughtful responses from today’s top religion professors, pastors, and other faith leaders on the topics. This class will meet in the Sojourner’s Room, and will be taught by Danny Simmons, Jamie McDonald, and Cassie Price.
- Fellowship Class
Join a diverse group of individuals and couples who come together to study the Bible. The Bible lessons in this quarter unify around the theme, “Respond.” The lessons move through variou responses people of faith are called to make as they live out their faith in both good times and difficult ones. The Fellowship Class meets in the Christian Education wing, and is taught by Kitten Whitlow.
The atmosphere of this class is non-threatening, non-judgmental—a feeling of love and respect for each participant’s questions or expressed beliefs prevails. The class will continue their study of the Gospel of Matthew using Willaim Barclay’s New Daily Study Bible commentary, taught by Cathy Law, Sara Reese and Susan Deihl. This group is planning to meet online via Zoom from September through December 2021.
