Sunday School

At Buncombe Street United Methodist Church, one of the primary ways we grow spiritually and form soul-nourishing, lifelong relationships in Christ is through Sunday School. Knowledge through study – and the incredible fellowship that goes along with it – are essential elements of the Christian life.

We are currently offering in-person Adult Sunday school, in-person Youth Worship, and Children’s Sunday school at Downtown campus. Traditionally, our classes for all ages are offered at 10:00 AM each Sunday, with periodic social and joint Sunday School activities throughout the year.

Some Sunday School classes are comprised of people with similar life experiences and ages (children, youth, young couples, singles, and seniors, to name a few.) Other classes are designed around common interests in particular studies or topics. All Sunday School classes are open to both members and visitors, as well as friends in our community. They are full, active, and welcoming centers for faith maturity.
