Adult Sunday School

New Sunday School Class starts November 4

A new Sunday School class geared toward parents of young children will begin on Sunday, November 4. This class will meet Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in Room 305. Come as you are, and meet with other people navigating the parenting years. During the class we will study a variety of topics designed to help us grow in our faith, and as parents. For more information, contact Rev. Elizabeth Lobello Edwards at eedwards@stjamesatlanta.org . If you are not a parent of a young child, St. James has other opportunities to connect. Contact Elizabeth to discuss our other options.

The Disciple Bible study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God.

This thirty-four week course will be offered on Sunday afternoon or evening. For more information or to sign up, please contact Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Lobello Edwards at eedwards@stjamesatlanta.org.
