Sunday School at Madison Street

Currently, our Sunday School Groups are meeting virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  For information on how you may join a virtual Sunday School class, please contact Rev. Jared Wilson.  Madison Street has eleven active Sunday School classes for adults of all ages and at all stages of life. Scroll down to see descriptions. 

Ages & Stages

Among the longest-running classes at Madison Street UMC, Ages & Stages is comprised mainly of retired members or our community. Both outside facilitators and class member volunteers lead the discussion style and multi-media supported classes. Topics include contemporary issues, discipleship, and Bible teachings to help us in our everyday lives. We enjoy a monthly pot-luck dinner as well as spontaneous social gatherings.

 

Location: Room 108
 

Community Class

The Community Sunday School class adopted that name because we are all a part of the worldwide community of God’s children. Members of this class range in age from the early 30s to the mid 70s. This class uses a variety of Bible-based studies for in-depth learning and class conversation.  The Community Class strives to grow in God's knowledge in order to better serve God's community.

Kairos

The Kairos class is made up primarily of members in the “middle” season of life.  They are parents dealing with issues that pertain to raising children (ranging in age from preschool to high school) as well as issues of having aging parents.  Study topics are chosen based on the many challenges being “in the middle” bring to our lives and how to deal with those while relying on faith. The class values the fellowship and relationships that come with being part of a group and welcome new members of any age.

Mayhew Class

The Mayhew class is an adult class devoted to service and sharing Christ in our lives and lives of others. We study materials that help us to live the life that Christ would have us live. Discussion and the lessons are shared by volunteers in the class. Some of our mission projects that we are participating in are F.U.E.L., Room in the Inn and paying a minister’s salary in Guatemala. Our express purpose is to enrich our lives in Christ’s teaching and to love our neighbor as our self. We welcome anyone that would like to study with us.
