Adult 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.

Lagniappe Class

The Lagniappe class currently meets virtually on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 a.m. For a link to join, contact the church office. 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. The current focus is a book by James F. McGrath, What Jesus Learned from Women.

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. in the classroom on the church office hallway.

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.

Who is My Neighbor? Class

This class is brand new and will begin meeting November 13. Lead by Tim and Alli Wall, it will be based on Who is My Neighbor? from TMS Global. The class is geared toward adults under 40 and will meet from 10-10:45 a.m. in Conference Room 3.

A Word About Special Needs

Pittman Park follows an inclusive model for children with special needs. To help them get the most out of their time here, they may be paired with a trained Ministry Facilitator who can offer extra care. To prepare your child for visiting us, we invite you to show them a social story that explains what to expect:
Traditional Service, The Nine Service, Park Kids on Sun/Wed

Please fill out this form to help us serve your child with special needs.

Park Kids is our ministry to ensure all children are welcome, safe and engaged at Pittman Park. Midway through Sunday worship services, children are invited over to “Main Street,” where they will have a chance to hear a lesson geared just for kids. There is also a Sunday School lesson from 10-10:45 where children get to know each other and work through a bible curriculum.

We offer a nursery, located in our Pittman Park Education Center childcare rooms, to care for babies and young toddlers. For preschoolers, we have an Ark in the Park class. The nursery space and Ark in the Park are available from 9-12 every Sunday.

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 are available to help younger ones stay engaged.

On Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30, grades K-12 meet for Bible Club.

To volunteer with Park Kids, fill out this form.

 
Pittman Park adheres to Safe Sanctuaries policies that protect children and vulnerable adults from abuse. A church committee administers the policies and all Park Kids volunteers are oriented to the program regularly.
