Young Adult Class– Room 305, Sundays, 10:00 am
The FUMCOR Young Adult and College Class is a reconciling group made up of anyone who identifies as a young adult (generally ages 20-35). As followers of Christ, we are committed to upholding the baptismal vow to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves, and to respect the dignity of every human being no matter their background. We study scripture, church history & tradition, as well as social issues. Our class is meant to teach us about the church, the world, and our place in both as we navigate our way into full-fledged adulthood and the professional world. We also get together outside of church a few times per year. Contact Josh Sumter if you have questions about the class.

Branches Class, Room 205, Sundays, 10:00 am
The Branches Sunday School Class is a loving and open forum for learning and growing in our understanding of God’s world through the study and discussion of a wide range of biblical, theological, and socially relevant topics and materials. We provide an environment where fellowship and the sharing of our individual life experiences is highly valued. To celebrate the gifts that God sends through the diversity of God’s people, we are a community of the Reconciling Ministries Network who welcome and celebrate people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions; races; ethnicities; ages; faith histories; genders; family configurations; physical and mental abilities; and educational and economic statuses. Branches strives to welcome and celebrate ALL because we affirm that if you are good enough for God (and you are!) you’re good enough for us.
