JOY Class

J = Jesus First     O = Others Second     Y = Yourself Last

The JOY Class is a collection of Christian men and women at different places in their journeys of faith. The class joyfully shares a vital ministry of prayer, cards, and missions, and we welcome all to our class as our ages span decades. Even though we are a large class, we discuss, laugh, sometimes cry, and care for one another and the community around us, and all participation is voluntary. Our current study is Room to Grow: Meditations on Trying to Live as a Christian, by Martin B. Copenhaver. Please join us at any time.

For additional information, please contact Marilyn Boyce (910.326.4897).

Emmaus Class

The Emmaus Class was formed originally in 1996 as a Pastors' "Methodism 101" course which studied United Methodist Doctrine, John Wesley, and spiritual formation. From this original group, the Emmaus class came into being in 1999. Adults of various ages enjoy the study of scripture through classic and contemporary literature. Though this group is small, it works! Several of the classmates serve as Children Sunday school teachers every other month, and yet others fill church leadership positions, so a flexible study is offered where others can always join in.

Our study, the Journey Through The Bible Series resumed after Christmas. Join us anytime.

Our class has taken gifts to our Junior High/Middle School class to welcome the new members. We also manage the Angel Tree ministry at SUMC.

Contact Bren Feutz (910.546.9038) for more information about the class study.

Seekers Class

The Seekers Class searches for the word of GOD by Daily and Weekly study, using the Cokesbury Press Bible Studies materials. Our daily readings at home prepare us for our lively Sunday School class which is a facilitated discussion. Every class member is encouraged to participate in the discussion. With our Class, though we may be apart due to absence, we are always together seeking Him daily in our readings.
 
The summer quarter we will study and discuss three units based on the Book of Romans. The units are Judgment and Salvation, A World Gone Wrong, and Life on God's Terms.

Come try us for a month or two and you may find yourself staying permanently. Our class rotates the responsibility of leadership monthly.

Families in Faith Class

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Families in Faith have one thing in common; the love of Jesus Christ. Come join us for 'fun' discussions each Sunday as we grow together in His love. We rotate teachers, who are really more like facilitators, each week. All are welcome!

We last studied Forgotten God by Francis Chan. We generally work on one chapter per week - unless the leader of the chapter feels it merits more than one week of time. We continue with the shared teaching/leading of chapters on a volunteer basis, which gives us a variety of viewpoints for fun discussions. We welcome any who would like to join in and study with us on a short or long-term basis.

Contact Dave Young for more information about this class.

Sojourners Class

The Sojourners class was formed in 1988. Our aim is to provide an in-depth study of scripture beginning with the historical setting of the writing and the original meaning to the first readers. There is also emphasis upon the interpretation and use though out the history of the church, and emphasis is on the application of the scripture to everyday lives. The class is open to adults of all ages. 

We are studying the Book of Ephesians.

We invite you to join us at anytime.
