ADULT DISCIPLESHIP

Adult Sunday School

9:30-10:15 AM - Sundays

At First Baptist we value continuous spiritual growth. We have Sunday School classes for all ages, year round. Pick a class that seems to be the right fit for you and jump in! You can join a class at any time. New classes start periodically.


Adult Sunday School starts at 9:30 AM. Parents, the drop off window for children's Sunday School is from 9:20 to 9:30 AM. Adult classes will end at 10:15 but children's classes will go a bit longer. Parents, please pick up elementary children from Sunday School between 10:20 and 10:25. Middle School and High School kids do not need to be picked up by parents.
