Sunday School & Study Groups
We have Sunday School classes for all ages that meet every Sunday morning at 9:45am!
** Masks are now optional at all gatherings. We hope you will do what feels most comfortable for you and your family during this time. If you would still like to mask, but forget to bring a mask with you, we have masks at all entrances to our building and our worship spaces.
Adult Sunday School
God in Books Class
God in Books, aka God’s Bookies, is a class that brings together people of varied ages, experiences, and outlooks, for energetic discussions of selected books, essays, and short stories. We choose diverse authors of both fiction and non-fiction who entertain, provoke, and generally lead us to grapple with the difficult questions our faith and faith history present to us. For questions about this class, please contact Lexi Eagles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This semester, Chuck Joyce will lead this class in reading Falling Upward by Richard Rohr. The premise of the book is that it is almost a necessity to have fallen in order to properly grow. We learn hard lessons in the process of forming our identity. Some never move beyond that, but he challenges us to use those lessons as leverage to grow and help others. This class has also studied Irresistible by Andy Stanley and The Hole in Our Gospelby Richard Stearns. For questions about this class, contact Chuck Joyce (email@example.com).
This wonderfully welcoming community of folks engages in a weekly study of scripture led by the Smyth and Helwys Formations study. Each week provides an in-depth reading of a text while also engaging story and experience. For questions about this class, please contact Hayatt Saei (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Youth Sunday School
Guided by the fresh and creative insight of the class leaders, the youth explore familiar stories of our faith in a way that both encourages a critical, mature reading of biblical texts and keeps discussions about God and faith relevant to the experiences of our youth. We have two Sunday School classes for our youth: 6th-7th grade class and High School class. If you would like to learn more about our Youth ministry, you can contact Lin Story-Bunce, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children’s Sunday School
We are grateful to have an amazing team leading our children’s ministry at College Park! Our Children’s Ministry Team, along with our stellar group of teachers and volunteers, works diligently to plan creative opportunities that nurture within our children a curiosity of faith, a love for others, and a desire to live out their faith with bold action in the world. Kids look forward to being a part of each opportunity and they know undeniably that they are loved, they are welcome, and are a cherished part of our family of faith!
Childcare is available for those under 2 in the nursery during Sunday School and is provided during both worship services for children through Kindergarten. Children 1st grade and older are invited to join us in worship. There are worship resources as well as books and coloring pages available for children. All childcare providers are vaccinated and wear an n95 mask.
