Aside from our traditional and contemporary worship services, Athens First United Methodist Church is proud to offer a variety of opportunities to further one’s religious education and to engage in meaningful discussion inside a smaller group setting through our Sunday school program. Our Sunday School program is categorized into three broad categories: children, youth, and adult. Each of these categories is further divided into classes based on age and the common interests of the participants. Each of our Sunday School groups meet for approximately one hour as scheduled between the two worship services beginning at 10:00. This time frame is structured in order to serve the interests of both traditional and contemporary worshipers. We have multiple Sunday School classes and feel that at least one of the groups will be a good match for our church worshipers. All of our Sunday school programs are led by lay leaders of our church who have volunteered their time and talents to guide in the education and communication of God’s word.
Children meet on the First Floor of the Education Building (5th and 6th Grade meets upstairs in the Beasley Center). Youth meet at the Youth Center (203 N. Jefferson Street) across the street from the Sanctuary. Adult classes meet on the third floor of the Education Building and the second floor of the Beasley Center.
