First United Methodist of Allen’s Sunday small groups (a.k.a. Sunday school) are groups of adults with similar interests, gathering together for fellowship, to learn more about the Bible and their faith, and to grow in that faith through sharing with one another.
Some class members might be brand new to this church, new to the Methodist church, or new to the Christian faith. Some may be further along in their faith journey. Since you are already at church for worship, a Sunday morning small group is a great way to connect with people in the church and build lasting and meaningful relationships.
All of our small groups welcome guests, and we invite you to visit as they gather to laugh, share, and grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ. We have classes for young or old, married or single, parents with young ones or living in an empty nest. All classes meet during our education hour from 9:45am-10:45am.
If you have any questions about any of these classes, contact Adam Lubbers, 972.727.8261.
