Sunday School Classes

Sunday school is base camp for becoming disciples – establishing a foundation for discovering God, building relationships, and exploring and growing in Christian faith. It’s where faith comes alive through engaging, relevant study and discussion, discipleship is nurtured and strengthened, and close friendships grow.

At Shandon, you’ll find several adult Sunday school classes for all ages and life stages. Classes meet each Sunday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Some classes are comprised of similar ages and life experiences and others are focused around common interest of topics. The classes are diverse, engaging, and focus on exploring the Bible and relevant, contemporary studies as well as an emphasis on community service and social activities.
