First Cumberland Presbyterian Church School Program
Clyde McClaran, Superintendent
The aim of our Church School program is to teach and to learn more about our Lord's teachings.Attending a Sunday School class provides an unequaled opportunity to do that and allows us to develop and nurture relationships with fellow Christians.
All of our classes offer a time of study on Sunday morning and the opportunity to come together for special events. There are no restrictions on which class you may attend based on age. YOU ARE WELCOME TO ANY CLASS REGARDLESS OF AGE.
