Sunday School

Sunday School classes are designed to offer excellent teaching in a relational and relaxed environment. You will find the opportunity to connect with friends your own age and in other stages of life while enjoying light snacks. You will also find engaging, biblically-based teaching that applies to your life. Join us on Sundays at 9:00am. The classes begin April 8. For more information or to get connected to one of the age-based groups, contact Shannon Clark.

Ecclesiastes
Doug Roberts
The writer of Ecclesiastes says “Vanity of vanities … all is vanity.  What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?  A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises.” Is this a book written by a cynic or does it seek to address the “big questions” of life? What is the end of man, what is our purpose, what brings us happiness these are some of the questions posed in Ecclesiastes. We will explore this book and many of these questions and others during the study. We will also be including comments from several of Tim Keller’s books as well such as: The Reason for God and Making Sense of God.  Do you have questions and doubts about life and our place in it, come and join the conversation.
Room A

Ages: 35-45 & Over 65
1 Thessalonians
Mike Stanfeild
Join us for an in depth look at this letter of friendship as Paul shows his pastoral concern covering the many areas for which the Thessalonians needed guidance. Paul specifically commends his readers for their steadfastness in suffering, he encourages them in their trials, he tells them not to neglect their work, and he wants to teach them about future things. Understanding the history, the land, the socio-economic environment and religious life will help us understand Paul’s letter and how it applies to our daily lives.
Room B

Ages: Under 35 & 45-65
Our Goal

The goal of Sunday School at Southwood is to equip the congregation to experience God’s grace from all of Scripture and to express God’s grace in all of life. We also believe the implications of grace are best learned and lived out in community. So, Sunday School at Southwood is all about Connections:

Connecting with God: We prioritize engaging and interactive study of God’s Word as well as of specific topics that help us apply it to every aspect of our daily lives.

Connecting with Each Other: We intentionally set aside time during these classes on Sunday mornings to eat, talk, and get to know both new and old friends better.

Connecting with Southwood: We design these classes to be a good step toward learning more about the heart of Southwood and how to engage further through small groups or serving.
