Sunday School

Welcome to Aldersgate United Methodist Church! Sunday School is offered every Sunday from 9:30 - 10:10. We offer a wide variety of Sunday School classes. Below is a list and basic description of each of our classes. Not sure which class is right for you? Come and try out the different classes until one fits your spiritual needs.

Wesley Fellowship Class is a lecture based class that derives its lessons from the quarterly Cokesbury study guides. There is also some limited discussion. We meet in the Wesley Classroom located in the Children’s wing in the first two classrooms on the right adjacent to the nursery hallway. The age range is 40’s to 90’s. We are involved in many missions outside of the church, but most prominently with providing meals to Emmanuel Soup Kitchen. We are also very diligent in our Sunshine activities involving weekly visits to members of the class in the hospital or those unable to attend church. We are very active in supporting the financial needs of the church.

Bible Scouts Class is a discussion based class that meets in Room 12, next to the Library on the Adult Sunday School Hall. This class consists mostly of adults over the age of 50 but all ages are welcome! The Bible Scouts Class discusses the books of the Bible in a manner that involves study, sharing and discussion. Our ministry involves seeking personal spiritual growth and spreading the Gospel by locating and fulfilling the needs of the church and the community.

Light the Way Class is a group discussion format that is teacher led. This class meets in Room 38 on the Children’s Wing. It consists of adults of all ages and involves study of the scripture. Please bring your Bible to study with us! We are involved with missions such as remembering and recognizing our deployed members as well as involvement in church missions.

Seekers Class is a discussion based class that meets in Room 14 on the Adult Sunday School Hall. There is a wide range of adults from ages 26 – 94 in this class. The Seeker’s Class is topically based according to the teacher’s choice and deals with daily Christian living. We support various ministries within the church and community including monthly meals at the Samaritan House, Sumter Area Missions, Salkehatchie Summer Service, Sumter Christian Charities, and United Ministries of Sumter County.
