Sunday School at St. Matthews
All classes begin at 10:00 AM
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. For more information on any of our Sunday morning classes, contact Ron Crompton at 544-0082.
