Sunday School

Sunday School classes offer RMC’ers a place to learn and grow together. Join us at 9:30-10:15 in the Fall, Winter and Spring.

For Younger Children

Melissa talking with children up front during RMC worshipChildren age 0 through second grade are invited to a time of fellowship and play from 9:30-10:15. On nice days we often go to the playground, and when the weather is not good we play in the indoor nursery. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend adult education during this hour.
Part way through worship younger children are welcomed to Order of the Mustard Seed, our children’s worship and formation time. Children learn Bible stories and songs, do crafts and interact with their faith alongside our Intergenerational Minister and other church volunteers.

For Older Children

Young people creating at the art table during RMC worshipChildren in third grade through high school are welcomed to participate in Christian formation from 9:30-10:15. Throughout the year we offer both intergenerational classes and age-specific classes. These change each quarter of the year.
During worship, older children are invited to participate in worship through reading Scripture and poems, lighting candles, playing instruments, and through sharing time. We also offer a hands-on table for people of all ages to interact with the worship service through art.

Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday school class at RMCAdult classJourney Forward:  Who are we as Mennonites?  Who are we becoming as a denomination?  Journey Forward is a churchwide renewal process of engaging in scripture, storytelling and sharing how God is at work in the lives of people and congregations across MC USA. This class will use the Pathways curriculum developed by people across our denomination to discuss our renewed commitments. It will also give us a chance to think about what it means to be Mennonite in an Southern urban context. Melissa Florer-Bixler (and others) will facilitate this class.

Come join us to satisfy your sweet tooth as well as your desire for learning more about God’s word to us.  This class is intended for RMCers aged 9 and older.  Rachel Taylor will be facilitating this class.
