Listed below are the Adult Sunday School Classes currently being offered at Saint Mark UMC.  It is our hope and prayer that you will find a class home in which to connect, study, share and fellowship with.  

Saint Mark is always constantly striving to update and begin new classes on Sunday mornings.  We would love to hear from you if you don’t see a class that might meet your needs. 

Adult Classes

Agape
Led by Jerry Moss, this class is comprised of middle aged adults who seek to serve Jesus by Biblical study and by supporting and participating in international missions.  Class members serve by finding ways to help heal our community with disaster relief through Camp Coker, Care Construction (home repairs and yard work for people in the church and the community that need a little assistance), and international mission work.

The Current
Led by Blake and Ashleigh Newman, The Current is a group of 20 and 30 year-olds that is committed to study, service, and fellowship.  This class welcomes singles and couples that seek to know God better and join in Christian fellowship.  

Genesis
Led by Robert Humphreys and Fox Harmon, this class is guided by Biblical principles by reading and discussing the Bible.  They seek to serve God by serving others,; they support students in Honduras, special camps at Camp Sumatanga, and a University of Alabama student. 

Harrison-Seekers
Led by David Kelly, this diverse group of middle aged adults uses open discussion and a United Methodist weekly Bible study to draw closer to God.  They are active both inside and outside the church, serving the people of God through the St. Mark Food Pantry, Giving Tree, and Turning Point.  

Jenkins
Led by different members, the Jenkins is class committed to learning in a relaxed and open atmosphere.  Members use the United Methodist Adult Bible Study series each week but will also use special studies if members choose to do so.  The class supports children here and abroad, specifically the Challenge Farm that offers a Christian home for homeless children in Kenya.

McCollum
Led by John Bostick, Norman Carlson, Pat Bohannon, Tom Hunter, and Roy Maize, the McCollum class is one of two original adult Sunday school classes of St. Mark.  They study through the Bible every three years by using a weekly United Methodist Bible study.  Deeply involved with supporting missions, this class donates to the United Methodist Children’s Home, back-to-school projects, the Giving Tree, Caring Days, and other needs as they arise. 

Nova-Fellowship
Led by various members of this mature and active class who volunteer to teach lessons from the Adult Bible Study series.  Our class is a place where Scripture and stories meet, questions get asked, and discussions are welcomed.  We believe in the power of prayer and serving by supporting and participating in a multitude of church/mission projects (i.e.  Care Construction jobs, Caring Days, Camp Sumatanga, Men and Women's Kairos prison ministries, Emmaus, and the St. Mark Food pantry and UMW).  The Nova-Fellowship class meets in the Church Parlor.  We invite you to meet with us for fellowship, prayer, service, and song!

Steadfast
Led by various members of the class, this group of 30-40+ year olds discusses topics relevant to life as men and women in today’s world.  The Steadfast class strives to uplift one another in prayer, sharing, and bonding together in Christian love and acceptance. 

Vineyard
Led by Bridgett Monk and Harry Gabriel, this class often studies various books of the BIble, and studies books written by Christian authors as well.  The Vineyard welcomes folks of all ages, and is committed to serving those in need by participating with the ministry of the West Alabama Community Soup Kitchen.  

Voyagers
Led by Mark Scogin, this group of middle-aged adults is studying and praying their way through the Bible.  The Voyagers class is committed to various on-going mission projects that support the Kingdom of God.  

Whosoever
Led by Rev. Dick & Linda Wright and Chester Norris, the Whosoever class invites visitors and newcomers to join us in prayerful, thoughtful, Biblical studies.  This intergenerational class, started in 2007, welcomes all adults who seek Jesus and want to grow in their faith.  They serve by helping various families in need and supporting Kairos prison ministry, Emmaus, and the St. Mark Food Pantry.
