Sunday school classes provide an ideal opportunity to meet new people, develop friendships, and develop deeper knowledge and skills for connecting faith and daily life. Below are the classes offered for adults on Sunday morning ...
BUILDERS (Room 214) - Teacher: Keith Dial
The Builders’ class is studying the Adult Bible Studies from Cokesbury. As we look at the Prophets Ezra and Nehemiah we will learn more about the importance of people following God's design and not being deterred by the distractions of the world. We also have monthly socials to fellowship outside of church.
DISCOVERERS (Room 207/208) - Teacher: Pat Johnson
Discovers Sunday School class is a discussion class. It is based on the weekly reading of the Upper Room's "Disciplines", one of the daily devotions available from Pleasant Valley. Scripture is read and the discussion is based on it and the relationship to the weekly author's teaching, meditation, experience of the individual class members and how these relate to the members lives and to current events in PVUMC, the Community and the World. The class starts with prayer & announcements; it ends with prayer for the various concerns of the church, individuals and community.
CANTICLE (Room 213) - Teacher: Eric Metz
The Canticle class includes attendees from a wide age range, singles, couples, and married with young children. The class is informal and interactive, using six to eight week study guides which address practical application of the scriptures to everyday living. We are studying a six part series on "Overcoming Challenges", based on the book of Nehemiah. After that, we will likely begin another six part series from the New Community series from Zondervan.
NEW LIFE (Room 201) - Teacher: Lee Thompson
New Life is currently studying the Adam Hamilton newest book:
“Making Sense of the Bible”.
FAITH LINKS (Room 102) - Teacher: John Wilson
Faith Links Sunday School Class is currently studying a 2014 publication
written by Adam Hamilton, “Making Sense of the Bible,” having just begun the
study and to continue for about two months.
class regularly chooses a theology-related book for study and open
discussion. Our selections focus and often challenge the United Methodist
Church’s claim, “Open Doors, Open Hearts, Open Minds.” Members of
the class represent a wide range of ages, careers, church experiences, and
interests in how the church can serve, plus invite one’s growth in faith.
The format is a comfortable, non-threatening and entirely voluntary discussion
setting, prompted/invited by hand-outs and limited with ‘homework.’
Visitors are urged to attend a session to check out these claims! We meet
in the Parlor, across the hall from the church office.
SEEKERS (Room 215) - Teacher: Charlie Cope
The Seekers are listening to Charles Stanley's study on Ephesians.
