Adult Sunday School
Adult Sunday School programming at South Highland has always been one of our greatest treasures. Continuing in that rich tradition, SHPC offers twelve Adult Sunday School classes covering a variety of subjects from Bible Studies to current issues. Also recognizing that opportunities for Adult Education are not limited to Sunday mornings, many of our Bible Studies and Groups meet at various times throughout the week. It is our hope that one or more of these offerings will meet your educational and spiritual needs, enriching not only your life but also the world in which we live.
Classes are held Sunday during the 9:30 to 10:30 hour.
