Sunday School

Learning and growing together as a faith community

Sunday School is a time-honored tradition that is new every Sunday! Our church family is a large one, and Sunday School offers everyone a special place to be. Sunday School is the place where people learn about the Christian faith in a loving, supportive environment. All groups meet at 10:00 a.m. If you would like a more personal introduction, please contact emily@fumcaustin.org or (512) 478-5684 x 228.

Adult Classes

Our Sunday School classes offer adults a wide selection of age groups, study topics, and learning styles. Study topics range from the Bible and Christian beliefs to personal growth issues, family relationships, and current social concerns. A strong emphasis on fellowship and support makes these groups a vital part of the church community.
