Sunday School for Children and Teens 

Our toddlers and children through 5th grade will be taught through the David C. Cook Bible-In-Life curriculum series resource. This series is Bible based, teaching scripture knowledge with God-honoring biblical values. Lessons provide a connection to everyday life. This curriculum is based on a 3 year cycle.

Middle School students will be instructed with the rfour.org Season 4 curriculum, which has 25 lessons grouped into 8 sessions. The curriculum goals include (1) increasing biblical literacy, (2) highlighting the universal and relevant themes in the Bible stories, and (3) inivitng personal sharing to strengthen community.  Each lesson includes scripture, activity, and a short movie clip. 

High School students will be learning to recognize God's presence in their lives as they explore prayer, the biblical stories of our faith, modern parables in DVD formats, and dynamic discussions of faith in today's often volatile world. This won't just be a program of talk, but a challenge to act. Our teens will experience faith coming alive to help them make a successful transition into owning their faith.

The Children and Youth Sunday School Offering will be given in mission to support students in the Quakertown School District Reduced Lunch Program.

2018- 2019 Classes for Adults

 
Women's Class:  Join Laura Lillie and the ladies in Room 114 for their Cokesbury Adult Bible Study lessons.  Each quarter (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer) contains 13 lessons which present stimulating sessions that explore the biblical message and how to apply it to daily life by focusing on personal, family, church and community concerns.  Note:  For the Fall session, from Rally Day through November, the ladies will join the FaithBuilders class in Room 109 for the Apocrypha study.
 
Men's Class:  Join the men in Room 112 as they follow daily devotionals with related scripture passages and Bible study, such as "Our Daily Bread".  This personal and small group study and discussion help the men grow in their relationship with Jesus  and learn how to apply scripture to their daily lives.
 
FaithBuilders:  Join Gail Schadler in Room 109 on Rally Day, September 9th, as she begins the class, "The Apocrypha:  Witness in the Period Between the Testaments."  Find out what's in the Apocrypha, why we should read it, why it's typically not included in our Protestant Bibles, and how these Jewish writings contributed to the formulation of central Christian doctrines, to the perseverance of our forbears in the faith who endured torture and death, and to the ethical formation of the people of God.  
                         From January 6, 2019 through March 10th and then April 14th through June 2nd, join Gail and the FaithBuilders in room 109 for a Wesley Ministry Network video series on  "Methodist Identity:  Our Beliefs."  This study covers distinctive elements of Christian faith in the Wesleyan/Methodist tradition.  Eight sessions will be broken into 16 to allow for prayer, video presentation and discussion in our classroom.  The topics covered include:  the nature of Methodist Doctrine, Trinity & Christology, Prevenient Grace & Repentance, Justifying Faith & Assurance, Sanctification, Baptism & Christian Initiation, Eucharist, and Eschatology (death, judgment and destination of the soul.)
 
Sunday Morning Life Group:  This small group meets during the Sunday School hour in the Parlor with a focus on family and Bible study.  It is open to any who wish to join the discussion.
