Growing in Faith through Sunday School

NMO-UMC is pleased to offer the following Christian Education opportunities for all ages.  Join us Sundays at 9:45 a.m.!

The Sojourners

The Sojourners Adult Sunday School Class is currently engaging a study by Richard Rohr on the Legacy of Saint Francis.  In this study, participants will explore five topics central to Franciscan theology and practice including: Atonement Theory, Eco-Spirituality, The Christ who Existed before Christianity, Orthopraxy vs. Verbal Orthodoxy (Living Like Jesus), and Mysticism over Moralism.  The Sojourners class meets in the Fellowship Hall.

 

 

The Searchers

This summer, The Searchers class is focusing on the issue of “justice” as presented in the New Testament.  Justice is portrayed as a primary characteristic of God’s nature.  Human beings are called to emulate God’s justice toward one another.  Lessons will come from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke and the Epistles of 2 Corinthians and Colossians.  Led by Doug Martin, Carole Poland, and Nancy Sasser, this class meets in the choir area in the Sanctuary.

Teen Sunday School Class

The Teen Sunday School Class is engaging a thirty-six week sweep through the Bible from creation to Revelation using the Echo the Story 36 curriculum.  This study helps participants discover meaning and identity in the biblical narrative through video, group discussion, and sketch journaling.  Jim McGehee leads this group in discussion of a variety current topics relevant to teens and how they might be viewed through the lenses of Christian faith.  This class meets on the second floor.
