Sunday School Classes

Each Sunday at 10, Sunday School classes are offered for all ages.

Fellowship Class

The Fellowship Sunday School Class is a group of couples and singles, aging from Fifty and beyond, who gather each Sunday morning at 10 a.m. in the church Parlor (the building adjacent to the Chapel).

The class discusses the Bible and scripture, as related through a Sunday School lesson book. “Fellowship” truly describes this Class of warm and loving Christians.

For additional information please contact Sheri Sterling.

Lagniappe Class

The Lagniappe class is composed of “almost mature” adults of all ages.  Named after the Cajun word for “a little something extra,” this is a class that values questions and appreciates that there are rarely easy answers.  Led by history professor Jeff Howell and retired pastor Bob Townsend, the class explores a broad range of topics that encompass life’s paradoxes, often touching on both the sacred and profane. 

 Representing different viewpoints, life experiences, and theological perspectives, members of the Lagniappe class believe that all of us are children of God who are called to care for one another.  We celebrate the diversity of God’s Kingdom and we welcome and affirm all people, including those of different ability levels, socio-economic backgrounds, family and marital statuses, nationalities, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.   

Lectionary Class

This Sunday School class meets from 10-10:45 a.m.

We enjoy open discussion on Scripture chosen from the week’s Lectionary readings by the lesson leader. The Lectionary is a published 3-year cycle of verses, each week highlighting an Old Testament, Psalm, Gospel and Letters selection. The table is arranged to follow the Christian calendar as to complement worship.

Weekly attendance ranges from 12 to 20 members of various ages. Some of us are new to Pittman Park, others new to Methodism, but most of us learn something from each other every Sunday.

As the selected material varies each week, it’s easy to join the class at any time and not feel others are better prepared to participate.

ReDiscover Class

Rediscover is a Sunday school class for adults looking at current events through a Christian perspective. We use a variety of sources including video series, internet videos, and articles. For more information contact Jonathan Smith. Our current series is Invitation by Brian Russell. 

Woody Powell Class

This Sunday School group meets at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the Woody Powell Classroom. We focus on growth in Christianity for an experienced mature age group. 

For additional information, please contact Patricia Duggan.

Children

Park Kids is our ministry to ensure children are welcome, safe and engaged at Pittman Park. Each Sunday, there is a Sunday School lesson at 10 before everyone heads to the main worship service. Midway through the service, children are invited over to “Main Street,” where they will have a chance to hear a lesson geared just for kids.

The first Sunday of each month is “Family First Sunday,” when everyone stays in the adult worship service together. The service is mindful of the young attendees, and activity sheets available to help younger ones stay engaged.

We offer a nursery, located in our Pittman Park Education Center childcare rooms to care for babies and young toddlers. This nursery space is available during the entire service every Sunday.

 
Our Park Kids ministry follows Safe Sanctuaries guidance.
