Sunday School Classes


The Pilgrims Sunday School class was formed in 1961 by Pastor Taylor’s wife, Mildred. At that time, most members were single adults and of college age. Richard Werle is an original member. Mildred fostered the members’ interest in the Bible and planned fellowship activities. When the Taylors moved to Columbus, IN, several other teachers helped us, then Wilma Miller began teaching and stayed on for many years. She challenged members in their personal growth, planned outings and was a wonderful influence.

Our current teacher, Janet Werle, began teaching the class in the late 1980s and often mentions learning so much from Wilma. Janet helps us strive to Know God, Grow spiritually and Show others the love of Jesus Christ.  In the past, we have studied The Gospels, the letters of Paul, a video series of the New Testament from the Great Courses, special studies encouraged by Pastor David, and currently, as of the summer of 2016, we are studying from the NIV Standard lesson quarterly.

Our Outreach projects include adopting angels from the Christmas Angel tree, purchasing

Bible or Devotional books for confirmands, collecting gifts or financial support for local

families in need, supporting UMCOR, Heifer projects, and the Helping Hand Outreach Fund.

Our class prays for church members, friends and family members in illness and trials,

celebrate with them in good times, and send cards of support frequently. We’ve grown close and support each other.

Please join us and find the joy of learning more about the Bible in a loving fellowship. Yes, we also enjoy occasional fun times away from church.


Firm Foundations

The Firm Foundation Sunday School Class was created by Rev. John Abbott as a class to help develop a more clear understanding of the Scriptures.  A type of Theology 101.  This class was continued by Pastor Andy and Pastor David.  It is currently under the leadership of JR Snow who teaches the weekly lessons.  The class meets in the back half of Fellowship Hall and is looking to grow.  All are welcome. The small group averages 10 in attendance.  As of the summer of 2016, we are studying the Old Testament and are just getting into Joshua.  We start and end with prayer; we are like a family within a family; we support missions global, national, community, and SUMC.  It is one thing to read the Bible; it is another thing to hear it being read and explained.  Once again, all are welcome to join us.


Foot Prints

The Footprints Sunday School Class is a diverse group of believers: single and married; male and female; twenty somethings to sixty somethings.  We have been studying the books of the New Testament.  As of the summer of 2016 we completed II Peter and have now returned to the Gospels, beginning with the book of John.  The Core Values of the Foot Prints Sunday School Class are: 

  • The Foot Prints SS Class believes that everyone must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  
  • We believe that all believers travel at their own speed, some slow, some fast. All believers and non-believers are treated with respect. No one is ever put “on the spot.”
  • We believe in the Priesthood of Believers, where each believer is responsible for his own relationship with Jesus Christ based upon their belief and understanding of God’s written word, the Holy Bible
  • We believe in missional giving and support a variety of missions including: Jesus Cares at Exit 0, New Life International, Campus Crusade for Christ, Go with God Global, Salvation Army Angel Tree, SUMC Children and Youth programs, and SUMC Helping Hands.
