In addition to our children and youth Sunday School classes, here at Albertville First United Methodist Church we have five wonderful adult Sunday School classes to choose from. There is something for everyone.
We are the latest class formed in the rich history of AFUMC Sunday classes. The class is currently made up of young adult Millennials ages 20-35. Some of our friends have children and some do not. We are an interactive class focused on growing deeper in our Spiritual lives but also having a great desire to welcome among us all those who are on a journey toward Christ. So whether you are already living out your faith commitment in Christ or seeking to know more, join us. We meet in a comfortable and casual setting with lots of laughter mixed with deep biblical searching and content. We are facilitated by Mitch Floyd and Pastor Barry Dunn. Join us Sundays on level two, just out side the main sanctuary.
The Tapestry class is made up of younger adults with school-age children. The class has a mixture of single and married members and welcomes visitors with great love and acceptance. The class is a discussion based Bible study and will often be facilitated by a seasoned member of the class. The class meets on the second floor in the new building. Just take the stairs from the circle drive entrance and its the second door on the left.
THE OPEN FELLOWSHIP CLASS
The open fellowship class is focused on having a life changing personal relationship with Jesus Christ and making Him known in the world. We study life changing lessons from Scripture taught in various formats from basic Sunday School curriculum, to book studies , to video led classes, to facilitated discussion classes and beyond. We also seek to be used to change the world through serving and giving. We love to entertain guests visiting our church. Our class is compromised mostly of middle-aged adults who are both single and married. Our class meets in the fellowship hall class, just below the main sanctuary.
GOOD NEWS CLASS
“He said unto them, Go into all the world and preach to GOOD NEWS to all.”
The purpose of the Good News Class is to share the love of Jesus through faith, friends, fellowship and fun. You’ll always hear laughter coming through the double doors of our classroom #214, at the far end of the 2nd floor in the new building, starting at 10:00 am every Sunday. We learn more about God’s love through our weekly Bible based discussion, led by our outstanding teachers, Andy Finlay, Bob Grace, Brenda Rain and Ben Shurett. Our teachers pick interesting books written by various Christian authors and lead our discussion based lessons.
We are a friendly, super supportive group of single, married and widowed adults, ranging in age from our late 50’s to “don’t even ask how old I am!” We contribute to many different needs as they arise throughout the year, such as monthly to our church’s Helping Hands fund. At Christmas, we provide toys, clothes and a Bible story book for eight children through the Christmas Coalition. We sponsor a “Back to School” event with entertainment for the children every August, and also help with several other special programs and meals. You will find our members extremely active in all areas of our church ministries.
Good class. Good Bible Study. Good Friends. Good teachers. Good times.
Goodness…why don’t you join us this Sunday in the Good News class!
Come on up, come on in, come on back!
CARL RICHEY CLASS
This class was organized in 1948 when Rev. W.D. Barnes was pastor. Carl Richey saw the need for a class for young adults both single and married and it was known as the young adult class with Barber Hooper Jr. as the first teacher. After a short time, Carl Richey became the teacher and in 1964 a proclamation named the class the Carl Richey Class – it is the oldest class in the church bearing its same name with some of the charter members still in attendance. Currently various members of the class take turns teaching one Sunday a month and occasionally people in other classes have been asked to teach.
The class has had many projects through the years striving to serve the local church and the community beyond. We have donated to underprivileged families, the church bereavement fund, the church building fund, the food pantry, the Senior Nutrition program, the Methodist Children’s Home, Christmas Coalition, helped purchase Sunday School literature, UMCOR and the Christian Scholarship Fund.
The class currently has 20 active members and 10 that are unable to attend. Please consider joining us!
