Sunday school classes (9:45)

Kairos- This  class is currently studying the Beatitudes with The Power of a Focused Heart. Going at a casual pace, we alternate book studies with video. We meet in the room behind the sound booth in the Narthex of the Sanctuary. All ages are invited. Facilitator: Matt Sheldon
Seekers- This Sunday school class meets in the Fellowship Hall and is facilitated by Merideth Middleton. They will be studying the book of Acts and how it applies to our lives. For more information, contact Merideth Middleton at 850-345-6816.
Challengers- The Challengers Class meets in the “Parlor” of the Education building (1st floor, room E 137). This class is the oldest continuous Sunday school class at THUMC. Nobody is sure exactly what year it was started but the best guess is between 1965 and 1975. Sadly, our class roster is being depleted every year as we can claim several members over the age of 85 and at least one who is 100. Currently, three members share teaching responsibility: Phyllis Harris, Sue Stephens, and Sandra Kelly.
