ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
SUNDAY MORNINGS IN 2021
We have started a young families “Coffee & Chat” Sunday School time following the 9:30am worship service. While the kiddos enjoy Nursery & Sunday School time in our 200 wing, moms & dads are invited to continue with conversation and meet new friends in the Parlor until 11:30am. If the kids go to worship with you, just swing them by the nursery wing for a little Sunday School time for all ages. Contact Stephany Nystrand ([email protected]) or Malena Allison for more information.
BIBLE STUDY CLASS
Location: Room 309
We are a small, friendly, multi-generational group that enjoys reading and discussing Christian literature together, such as books by James Moore and J. Ellsworth Kalas. We enjoy hearing other points of view and struggling together to understand the difficult questions of faith. A lively sense of humor ensures that there is never a dull moment! Everyone is welcome. Contact Susan Johnson, [email protected], and (850) 933-4122 for more information.
BURLEIGH LAW CLASS

The Burleigh Law class is one the oldest classes in the church. Most of its members, both married and single, are retired. Our name is in memory of a missionary who gave his life in the Congo. Classes are taught by both members and guests, and lessons may be taken from church publications or issues of local interest. We are known for our social get-togethers and fellowship times. We support the nursery class made up of two and three year olds. Please contact Jean Holzapfel, 850-386-4953, [email protected], for more information.
CHEERS – Christians Happily Engaged in Enriching, Relevant Studies
Location: Room 327
CHEERS is a progressive, multi-generational class, which includes couples and singles, and welcomes diversity including persons of various talents, abilities, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. The class focuses on contemporary issues in a supportive Christian environment. We are willing to question tradition as we discuss how to be Christians in today’s world. We find grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning than in absolutes. All opinions are valued as we seek to learn from one another. The coffee pot is always on. Join us anytime. For more information, contact Dave Cuddington ([email protected]) (850) 294-0431 or Barb Block ([email protected]) (850) 241-2642.
