At Seventh & James, adults will find opportunities to grow spiritually, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and join with others as we grow in faith. We also long to see people connecting with one another in deep friendships that last years. C.S. Lewis once keenly observed this about the origins of friendships: “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’”
Adult Sunday School Classes
Our Adult Sunday School classes are intergenerational and are open to all. Classes begin at 9:45 AM. We invite and encourage you to visit several classes and then choose one that you find interesting, affirming, and challenging!
The Bible Class
The Bride’s Room (Sanctuary Foyer)
This intergenerational, Scripture-focused class is led by Rosalie Beck. This class is currently focusing on the book of Acts.
Lectio Divina is a contemplative approach to biblical study facilitated by Blake Burleson and Jim Kennedy. This intergenerational class practices prayer, meditation, chanting, and imaginative exercises which amplify sacred scripture. Blake teaches world religions and Jim recently retired from teaching Old Testament at Baylor University.
