Sunday school for all ages meets Sundays at 10 am.
The Mission of Adult Sunday School at Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church is to glorify God by providing teaching, encouragement, and support to our church family.
Each Sunday morning adults can choose from a variety of Sunday school classes. Formats vary from topical studies to systematic Bible studies taught by the pastoral staff and lay teachers. Sunday school begins at 10 am. We invite and encourage you to participate with us in one of our Sunday school classes as we, together, seek to know God through Jesus Christ in a more personal and intimate way.
Adult Classes Summer 2019
Schedule Note: Adult Sunday School classes will not meet August 25. Plan to attend the Men's Kick-Off Breakfast or Women's Kick-Off Breakfast that day. New classes begin September 8. Learn more: Fall 2019 Sunday School
Christ-likeness: Fruit of the Holy Spirit
God the Spirit lives inside all Jesus’ followers and He helps us die to sins and live for Christ’s righteousness. Over time, the Spirit makes the characteristics (fruit) of Christ grow in our lives, but we are not passive. Like a successful gardener fights against weeds to enjoy the sweet fruit, we must battle the “weeds” of our flesh (sinful nature) that oppose the sanctifying work of the Spirit. Please join us as we help each other grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.

Jesus: Our Great High Priest (A Summertime Study in Hebrews 8-10)
This summer we will explore these three pivotal chapters in Hebrews as they unfold the meaning, significance, and practical importance for us that Jesus is our Great High Priest who has secured an eternal redemption, who is the mediator of a new covenant, and who enables us to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.
Rev. Richard Colquitt; Room 211
Life of Abraham
The author of Hebrews tells us that Abraham was a man who walked by faith to the land of promise. He tells us that Abraham was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. Moreover, the apostle Paul tells us that if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to the promise. Abraham and the promises God made to him cast a prominent shadow over the rest of the Old Testament. And the better we understand the great patriarch, the better we will understand both Christ and the Christian life. Join us as we walk through Genesis 12–25 and study the life of this great man of God!
Rev. Robert Arendale; Room 213
Theology & Life: The New Testament Canon

Young Adults Sunday School Class
Next to the Bible, the best-selling book in the English language is John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. Remarkably, since its original publication in 1678, it has never gone out of print, and it is also widely recognized as the first novel ever written in the English language. Sadly, this monumentally influential book is falling out of influence in modern days. Pastor and theologian Derek Thomas has said that he fears this generation will be the one where The Pilgrim's Progress disappears. This class is designed to dive into The Pilgrim's Progress and Bunyan's rich Bible-saturated theology to discover why generations of Christians have found this work so compelling. Young adults are invited to join us as we read this book together and each week discuss its meaning and application to our lives.
