Adult Sunday School Academy
This new model of Sunday School launched at Centenary in January, 2012 during the 9:45-10:45 hour. The Academy concept is different from traditional Sunday School because participants don't join an ongoing class, but have a choice of options every couple of months. Some of these options will be for a specific demographic (i.e. women, men, parents of young children, married couples, empty nesters, etc.), but we will always have a "Drop-In" elective where the curriculum is not cumulative (marked by an asterisk) so you won't fall behind if your schedule takes you away on a Sunday or two. This webpage will contain the latest updates on what is offered in The Sunday School Academy and what material was covered from week-to-week. If you have any questions or suggestions for future electives, contact Rev. Jonathan Brake at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.397.1334.
