Adult Fellowship Sunday School Class

 

The Fellowship class established 50 some years ago, is a group of friendly, caring and enthusiastic members of the Waples church family. With the guidance of rotating teachers John Streun and Tom Smith, the focus of our weekly study comes from the Cokesbury Adult Bible Study series. Besides the on-going Sunday School lessons and discussions, we enjoy contributing our time and talents to areas of Waples and our community. Volunteering to Project Transformation, contributing to fellowship and bereavement meals, writing caring notes to church members along with individual members being a part of the Patchers group, the Altar Guild, the ERT, the Worship Team, providing monthly inspirational hall displays and volunteering at Texoma Medical Center...this is a group that truly embraces all aspects of Waples Methodist and the needs of Denison.

 

The highlight of our year is our traditional Christmas Brunch where a potluck meal is enjoyed. This is also when we divide into groups to Christmas shop for families in need provided to us by the Lions Club. Please know that the door to the Fellowship Class is always open to anyone looking for spiritual growing and friendly people to enhance your life.

Genesis Sunday School Class 

The Genesis Class is made up of medium to mature aged members, both singles, and couples. Participants share reading and leading the class. A variety of studies are done throughout the year either from a book or video. With each Sunday there is great discussion and conversation. The Genesis Class is always looking for participation from members who desire spiritual growth and discipleship.
