Sunday School at St. Matthews
NOTE: FOR THE SAKE OF CAUTION DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES ARE NOT CURRENTLY MEETING IN-PERSON.
Sunday School at St. Matthews United Methodist Church has three primary focus areas:
we are growing Christians, seeking to learn God’s Word and ways;
we strive to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ while enjoying the fellowship of other disciples;
and we serve others through our various missions together for the glory of God.
All of our Sunday School classes welcome visitors and new members, and some are meeting virtually during the pandemic. Those classes are listed IN BLUE, along with the point of contact person who can offer more information about their meetings.

This adult class includes members ranging in age from mid-30’s to mid-80’s, some of whom are married, some single, some divorced and some widowed. Some have children, others grandchildren. The class draws its name because they are seeking the kingdom of God, seeking God’s truth and seeking to love God and our neighbors in our daily lives. Study material ranges from Bible study to current events in self-contained, stand alone lessons (with no homework). A strong emphasis is placed on care for each other, both in prayer and in more tangible ways as needed. Contact Cammie Cox at 502-693-2711
