Adults Growing in Faith

Discover many ways to nurture your faith life. In addition to Adult Sunday School, you’ll find opportunities at times other than Sunday morning such as Bible studies, book discussion groups and more.

Sunday School classes will resume August 21.

We have two types of Sunday classes:

Short-term Courses: These are courses, which last four to eight weeks. They are designed to meet the needs of adults who are not part of a permanent class and to address topics on a short-term basis.

Permanent/Ongoing Classes: These classes meet together regularly throughout the year. Some of these classes use study materials produced by the Presbyterian Church, and some classes choose books or topics, which change periodically throughout the year. All of the classes strive for elements of study, community, and fellowship.

All adults are invited to move in and out of the short-term courses and ongoing classes in a flexible way to meet individual needs.

Permanent/Ongoing Classes

These classes meet together regularly throughout the year and have a permanent class roll. (Please know additions can be made at any time.) Some of these classes use study materials produced by the Presbyterian Church, and some classes choose books or topics, which change periodically throughout the year. All of the classes strive for elements of study, community, and fellowship. All are invited to visit these classes at any time without obligation to join.

All adults are invited to move in and out of the short-term courses and ongoing classes in a flexible way to meet individual needs.

These classes meet Sundays at 9:30 a.m. via Zoom and in person. For more information, call the church office at (501) 227-2000.

The Enneagram

Deepening our Faith with the Enneagram

Master teacher Suzanne Stabile describes the Enneagram (from the Greek ennea, for “nine”) as a “powerful, ancient tool for understanding motivation, behavior, and experience.” The system identifies nine different personality types.

For more information about the Enneagram classes at Second Presbyterian, please contact Catherine Lowry.
