Adult Sunday School Classes

Ault/Pacesetters (Room 101) This class, taught by Rickie Pierce, is composed of older adults, and meets in the Prigmore Room.  Its lessons address the spiritual needs of our contemporary society.  Humor is highly prized and lifts the enjoyment level of the lesson. The class enjoys an opening hymn each Sunday, and supports many outreach projects. 

Bible Class  (Room 444) This class follows the weekly lectionary Bible texts found in the Revised Common Lectionary.  Teachers make a presentation on the text each Sunday, but the approach is discussion based, so there is plenty of room for questions and comments.  For anyone who wants to spend a year going through the Bible with a focus on select readings from the Gospels, New Testament Epistles, the Psalter and Old Testament narratives, examining how the lectionary pulls these together in ways that outline the story of Israel and Jesus of Nazareth, then this class is for you.  The class is open to people of all ages and both genders.  Joe Woolums and David Hudson are the teachers.  

Common Ground (Room 125) Young single adults, in their 20’s and 30’s, as well as young married couples, enjoy Bible study and great fellowship.

Hardin (Room 344) This class describes its membership as a fellowship of marrieds and singles 50+ who can be counted on to study, discuss a lot, pray together, welcome visitors, socialize regularly and support First-Centenary worship, programs, and ministry. They pray that their varied approach to study and learning will continually lead to deeper Christian faith and discipleship.

Morgan (Room 107) Includes persons of mixed ages, primarily 60+ and interests.  Its lessons, taught by Dr. Steve Byrum, are biblically based but life oriented.  Its mission is to be a caring, sharing, redemptive fellowship reaching out to others in the name of Christ.  Fellowship is expressed through Shepherding groups, supper clubs, and class socials.  This class supports many outreach projects. 

Nell Mohney Singles  (Oak Street Center 101/102) Single adults enjoy refreshments and singing before the Sunday School lesson.
