Sunday School

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

Enter into an exotic and fanciful Persian kingdom complete with a dim-witted king, a defiant queen, an egotistical lieutenant and a loyal uncle.  With lavish banquets, extreme beauty treatments and dangerous liaisons at every turn, can the beautiful and courageous Esther avert disaster for her people?  All this occurs in a Biblical book where God is never mentioned.  Presenter Rev. Dr. Lisa M. Wolfe digs deeply and lovingly into this complex story that ranges from slapstick farce to Shakespearian tragedy.  Join the Sojourners as they explore the Book of Esther, a fascinating study of power, corruption, violence, and courage.  This class meets in the Fellowship Hall.

The Searchers

This summer, The Searchers class will focus 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.



Children’s Sunday School Class

Beginning in June, this class will move into a unit on Moses and the Israelites as they journey through the wilderness and into the land of the promise.  Led by Marcie Fleischer, this class meets on the second floor.



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.
