Sunday Morning Classes Meet every Sunday morning at 9:00 am.
CHILDREN & YOUTH
We have dedicated Sunday school teachers who provide a caring, engaging environment for all ages from Pre-K through 12th Grade.
Pre-K through 4th grade learn about important people of the Bible and the teachings of Jesus through story-telling, arts and crafts, and music.
Middle School Grades 5-7th dive deeper into scripture with a curriculum that is more challenging and provides opportunity for discussion.
Senior High Youth Grades 8-12 use topics of the day to lead them in the study of scripture and explore how the Bible and its teachings are applicable in today’s world.
Sunday Morning Bible Study offers us opportunity to not only get to know the Bible better, but also build stronger relationships as disciples of Christ. While each of our Adult Classes currently uses the Revised Common Lectionary as a guide, each class leader has the flexibility to alter class discussion material to address special needs and timely topics.
P.J. New Class meets upstairs in the P. J. New Fellowship Hall and uses the Feasting on the Word curriculum. During the week the class members read the upcoming lectionary scriptures review commentary guides that probe the following questions: What is important to know from the focus scripture? Where is God in these words? So what does this mean for our lives? Now what is God’s word calling us to do. Being some of the oldest members of Donelson Presbyterian, they bring rich testimony of perseverance in life and the joy in being with church friends. They shed gracious love on anyone who joins them for morning discussions. Elder Jim White facilitates our conversation.
Sonny Hartzog Class meets downstairs in room 116 and also uses Feasting on the Word curriculum to focus their discussions. This class brings a contemporary perspective of being a single, or young parent, or empty-nester to the conversation. Elder Mike Ingram facilitates our conversation.
InChoirErs Class meets in the Choir Room and is led by our minister, Dr. Paul Casner. Their approach is for each member to read the upcoming lectionary focus scripture and engage the pastor in deeper exploration of its meaning to the history of its time and for their lives. The format is a verse by verse, in depth, Bible study. Particular attention is paid to the historical and biblical context of each verse. Challenging questions and points of discussion are welcomed. This class tackles serious questions, but also laughs a lot!
