On Sundays, between 9:30-10:30 am, adults connect during the adult learning hour in nineteen different Sunday School classes, which act as a place of continuing growth in grace and discipleship. At First UMC-Denton, Sunday School is a powerful connection that shapes our many lives. It provides a lens to read culture, offers a Biblical perspective on contemporary issues and sparks critical thinking for the purpose of individual nurture and the Church’s sustenance.
