Classes

We're the fun group! Come visit the Seekers' Sunday School Class! We utilize the Adult Bible Studies curriculum from the United Methodist Church and meet in the classroom 200, next to the sanctuary every Sunday at 10am. We have four different teachers/personalities that rotate the instruction and have wonderful fellowship in a learning environment. Every month with a 5th Sunday we go out for brunch together at various local restaurants. We look forward to seeing you!

The Navigator Sunday School Class follows a discussion-based format consisting of Bible based lessons. Members are encouraged to share their ideas regarding the Biblical topics as we strive to navigate our growth as Christians in today’s world. Contemporary singles, couples and/or parents of Sunday School aged children are welcome to attend. We meet in room 202.

There is no set age range. All mothers are welcome. Majority are late 20s to mid-50s

All moms...some are single parents and others are not but the class is specifically designed for Moms. We meet each Sunday upstairs in room #206 during the normal Sunday school hour 10:00a.m. We try to plan at least one monthly activity as a group outside the church and use a rotating teacher’s schedule. We have an annual women's retreat for the church. We have our own small group retreat annually at the beach. We support each other through thick and thin. We have a variety of curriculums. We initially started and used Mom's Connect from Group and there were three series. We have done all three so now we pick and choose. We have done about 7 bible studies thus far. We will skip class if we have a mom in need of us listening and sharing. We are a close knit group but always welcome others to join us. We are learning to be better disciples of God. We would love to have additional members.

The Adult Fellowship Class is studying Old and New Testament scriptures presented in the Cokesbury Adult Bible Studies. Our teacher, Woody Crook, is a Bibli-cal scholar and historian. He leads us in thought-provoking discussions. Our focus is on living out God’s will to love others and to respond to their needs. Our class supports the Isle of Wight Christian Outreach Program (COP) with canned goods and monetary donations. We also support the Mile of Pennies program for missions. We meet in room 210.

Benn's has a well-equipped crib room Rm #102 downstairs with a paid attendant for infant through one year of age. Toddlers through kindergarten meet together and can be divided as necessary for age appropriate activities. The children are taught Christian values such as sharing, showing love to one another, resolving differences, celebrating and accepting differences in people, and learning to know Jesus. This is accomplished through Bible based storytelling, role playing, puppet shows, games, crafts, and song. The curriculum is the Deep Blue series. The goal is for the children to learn that God knows each one of them and loves them unconditionally. The class meets at 10am, but is also held during the 9am service for those who are unable to attend later. Special needs children are welcome. Teachers: Madison Bell, Judy Gardner, and Terri Ware.
