Adult Sunday School Classes
We encourage all ages to participate in Sunday School and small groups. As a result, our classes will begin meeting each Sunday morning at 9:30 am and we encourage each of you to read about our various classes to learn more about what we have to offer. If you have any questions about any of the classes, please stop by the church office or the welcome center for the location of the class room of your choice.
Each Adult Sunday School Class at Garner United Methodist provides a supportive place in which people can study, fellowship, worship and serve. Regardless of the class description all adults are welcome in any class. Come, join in!
Have you been feeling a tug to go deeper into the Scriptures and into your relationship with Jesus? What about a desire to connect on a more personal level with those you worship with each week? Would you like to get to know those around you and begin to share a "Faith Journey". If that is the case, there is a Sunday School class for you. Our second study book is "Revelation; The Christian's Ultimate Victory" by John MacArthur. The Book of Revelation has captured our attention, so we now plan to explore the actual scripture. Please join in when you have the opportunity.

An eclectic group of individuals and couples dedicated to God's purpose through fellowship and worship. While using the Adult Bible Series, our class focuses on contemporary issues through investigation of historical principles of the Bible and God's law. A major focus of the class is to apply the teachings of the Bible to the situations faced in the contemporary world. We are a group of younger to older believers who welcome all who wish to put the principles of God's law to work in the modern world. We believe the answers to today's trials and tribulations are found in the history, principles, and laws contained in the Holy Bible. Come visit with us for a breakfast treat and most of the time fresh coffee has been brewed.
