Adult Sunday School Opportunities

  • Seekers are a diverse group of young to middle age adults seeking the realistic truth to handling daily life, while keeping our faith first. Single, married and with children of all ages, seekers bring a variety of gifts, talents and struggles to the table. We are there to support each other and provide a Christian family foundation.

  • This class is comprised of a wide range of ages from 40's to 60's; however, any and all are welcome. We are a laid back class that enjoys a lot of laughs but will lend support and love in serious times. Our time together on Sunday mornings consists of Bible lessons, videos, discussions or guest speakers. The variety of lessons is a unique approach that results in offering something for everyone.

    This class enjoys and welcomes open comments and opinions during class. We believe it is important for a class to know each other and be in tune with everyone's joys and sorrows. The open atmosphere allows for such relationships to exist.

    Sojourners is also a mission minded class. Projects throughout the community are planned on a regular basis. This is a class that enjoys rolling up their sleeves and working together. There are socials and dinners that are planned throughout the year, but a bond is formed when you are in service together in Christ.

    If a comfortable and service minded class full of love and laughter is what you are looking for, this is the class for you. Come visit anytime!

  • "Koinonia" is a Greek term which means "communion or fellowship." What began in 1973, as a class for young adults is now one of the longest-running Sunday School clases at Dyersburg First United Methodist Church. While we still like to think of ourvselves as "young adults,' the average age is around 65. From the beginning of Koinonia, two requirements for membership have been in place: (1) Class members must be married, single or divorced and (2) One must attend at least once.

    Koinonia meets in teh Conference Room of the church, making our classroom not only handicap-accessible but close to the coffee, cookies and restrooms.

    Our teachers are usually committed to teaching for a full month, and several class members volunteer to teach throughout the year. Additionally, others outside our class are asked to teach so that there is a broad spectrum of teachers who share their love for Christ with us. Lessons cover a broad range of topics from contemporary living to United Methodist beliefs and practices to the study of biblical history. Recent lessons have been based on materials from authors James W. Moore, Adam Hamilton, Max Lucado, Maxie Dunham and bible study lessons.

    Koinonia supports and participates in several ministries of our local church, the larger connectional church and our local community. In the local church, we provide support to the Youth Minister, help serve meals at Salt and Light, which is the church’s Wednesday evening activity, work in the assistance program to help individuals in the community with financial support and groceries. We also provide support to Reelfoot Rural Ministries, a mission program of the Memphis Conference of The United Methodist Church. In the local community, Koinonia participates in the Salvation Army’s fundraising project at Christmastime and provides financial support for food baskets provided by the local Kiwanis Club. Working with the local school system’s resource officer, we adopt a family at Christmastime and buy gifts for the family members. Providing snacks for the ICU waiting room at the local hospital and preparing lunches for the New Life Union Mission Camp are other ways in which we help our community.

    Please feel welcome to join us this Sunday.

  • Sellers Sunday School Class

    This class was organized about 1947 as the Young Adult Class and taught by Robert S. Sellers. The Class name was changed to the "Sellers Class" when Mr. Sellers agreed that we could use his name if the emphasis and mission of the class would be "To Sell Christ to Others" rather than honoring his name. The group is made up of mostly older adults with a wide range of backgrounds and interests. We invite you to join us in the Sellers Class Room, located across from the chapel, and become a part of an active, alive, caring group as we strive to Sell Christ to Others.
