Sunday School

Welcome to our Sunday School Department. We have organized our Sunday School so that each person and family can find a comfort zone, be accepted, give of yourself and receive from others.


Youth Children


Agape Class: This class is made up of younger married couples. The class is led by Matt Barnes. The class studies selected short term offerings allowing for dialoguing, hands-on material.

 Fellowship Class:  We are studying using the International Bible Studies quarterly and we have opted to study verse-by-verse.  We learn by discussion and lecture.  The Fellowship Class has frequent social gatherings so that everyone gets to enjoy the fellowship of others.  Mrs. Veronica Calfee, our teacher, has a unique understanding and interpretation of the Bible.

 Fidelis Class: The Fidelis Sunday School class is for women over 30. If you want a class that studies the Bible and applies it to your daily walk, then this is the class for you. We are a very caring, loving class and we share a lot of good times as well as our needs. The curriculum for the class is written by James W. Moore.  Helen Mac Leay is the teacher

Lifters Class: This class is made up of couples. The class is taught by lecture and discussion using the International Sunday School Lesson. Linda Raley is the teacher.
