Learning how to apply biblical teachings to our daily living is one of the most important aspects of Christian Education. On Sunday Mornings at Rome First UMC, we have a number of adult Sunday school classes for you to consider. Some classes study the scriptures and then discuss how it relates to everyday life. Other classes prefer topical and Christian-themed book studies and discuss these. All the classes enjoy great fellowship and share the joys and challenges of life.
All classes meet from 10:00 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. each Sunday.
