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 Adult Sunday school with limited numbers on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:00 PM, online-only Youth Worship, and online-only classes for Children’s Ministry. 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.
Buncombe Street offers Sunday School classes for adults, youth, and children. They are full, active, and welcoming centers for faith maturity.
Children’s Sunday school is currently being offered online-only. Traditionally, Children’s Sunday school classes start at 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings. We offer Sunday School for children ages 2 through 5th Grade. Our Sunday School ages are based on a child’s age as of September 1st.
At BSUMC your preschooler will grow in their faith by learning the Word of God through Bible story activities, crafts, and media. Our leaders use the “Deep Blue” curriculum, which is engaging and age appropriate.
Godly Play is a Montessori based storytelling program. Children engage with the stories and are encouraged to journal and create artwork related to the sacred stories each week.
Children study a major Bible story each month and explore its meaning by using different media: art, science, Bible skills and games, Bible building blocks (Legos), and movies.
This Sunday School class is specifically designed for children in the 5th grade to help them prepare for Confirmation by delving into the Old and New Testaments.
Youth Worship is currently being held online-only. Youth Worship is a place where you can come and be yourself! A place where you will be known and loved. This is a time for 6th-12th graders to be around a like-minded community, seeking true friendship. Join us as we learn from the Bible, enjoy some fun entertainment, hang out with some awesome adults, and ultimately begin doing life together. Meets in the youth hall of the Downtown Campus.
