There is a class for everyone at Clarkesville First UMC! Descriptions and locations of all classes are available below or in the Sunday School Brochure. At the bottom of this page there is a link to our campus maps where you can find the locations of each Sunday School Class. We look forward to you joining!
The Aldersgate Class meets in the Church Office. Their lessons consist of a review and discussion of contemporary Christian literature based on scripture. It is an interactive class led by members serving as teachers. The Aldersgate Class is very active in all aspects of our church including: organizing the Easter Sunrise breakfast, helping with new member luncheons, Vacation Bible School, and many church activities. The Aldersgate Class also participates in community events and service organizations by contributing both time and money to the welfare of Habersham County. All are welcome who want to study and serve the Lord!
This class is primarily retired folks, but all adults who are looking for a friendly class are welcomed. Lessons are from the Adult Bible Studies, an official resource of the United Methodist Church. They meet downstairs in the Sanctuary Building, Room S-3. Teachers serve for a month and are both class members as well as teachers from outside the class. Discussion is usually included as part of the lesson. The Good News Class supports a variety of ministry groups, including: the Methodist Children’s Home, Wesley Woods, Murphy-Harpst Children’s Home, Heifer Project International, UMCOR, and local needs.The class plans a party each quarter, which usually includes a meal somewhere in the area.
The Pilgrims Sunday School class explores progressive Christianity with an emphasis on the Wesleyan tradition of scripture, tradition, reason, and experience to guide our faith. The class has a discussion format. Some members do lots of listening, so don’t worry if that is your preferred learning style. They are diverse in many ways and ages range from 17 to 91. There’s a place at the table for everyone who desires to grow in faith while thinking a little outside of the box. The Pilgrims meet in the Choir Room, and love to have visitors – stop by anytime!
If you are seeking the fellowship of other believers in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s, and are interested in age appropriate, Biblical topics of study, please consider the Seekers class. Topics may be general (ex. faith and love) or apologetic (“why we believe what we believe”). All are welcome, join us! The class meets at The Connection, Room C-16.
This class meets in the Legacy Hall. They do a wide variety of studies, from books to video series, led by class members. Class members also enjoy doing activities together outside of church.
Children's Sunday School classes meet at 10:00am in the Children's Wing. You’ll find classes for those in the Nursery (birth-4 years old), preschool (ages 3-5 years old), and 1st-5th Grade. Sunday School involves scriptural based curriculum filled with games, application, and fun! Parents can sign children in and out at their respective classrooms, and enjoy attending an Adult Sunday School class!
Youth are welcome to attend their grade-appropriate Middle School or High School Class, both of which are located in The Connection. They use video and discussion formats and meet at 10:00am.
