The Men’s and Women’s Sunday School class (made up of men from the Carl T. Vance class and women from the Katherine Miller class) meet in the Ladies Parlor and have four rotating teachers (Sally Morrison, Owen Colvin, Terry Brimer, and Scott Reams) who use the International Bible Lesson Series. The Fall 2019 topic is “Responding to God’s Grace.” The class utilizes a lecture format.
The Bill Handel Sunday School class meets in room 301A upstairs, across the hall from the children’s wing and behind the Scout room. This class also uses the International Bible Lesson Series. The class begins with an overview of the day’s scripture and then is opened to discussion. Chet LaFountaine is the lead teacher.
The 117s Sunday School class led by Paul and Sharon McAnear meets in the lower level across from the theater. Their studies focus on Biblically-based books and videos recommended by the teachers and/or class members. For Fall 2019 they are studying the Philip Yancey book “Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News.” Study books are available. All of the classes welcome new members.
Presbyterian Women have long been an important part of the work of our church. They meet the first Thursday of each month from September through May at 10:30am in the Ladies Parlor. This year the Bible study is entitled “God’s Promise I Am with You.” Each month’s lesson is taught by a member of PW. Following the Bible study, the group meets for lunch at different restaurants in the area. This monthly meeting is an opportunity for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Ongoing activities for the year include preparing Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes, quarterly gifts to shut-ins and college students, an event with Hidden Treasurers Academy, a Memorial Service for deceased members and a book club, to name a few. All women of the congregation are invited to join.
