Sunday School aims to help persons encounter God through studying His Word. First Milton offers opportunities for families and individuals to connect to the church family through small group Bible study in our Sunday School at 9:15 am. Sunday School provides interactive Bible study for persons of every age, preschool through senior adults, including children and adults with special needs. Each person can be involved with others on the journey of faith as they learn biblical truths and make life applications, discovering its relevance to today's world. The goal is to become more like Jesus every day.
Fellowship is a big part of our adult Sunday School, so join us in First Cup, our coffee shop, for a complimentary coffee as we get to know each other. Espresso beverages, smoothies, donuts and milkshakes are also available.
When you arrive, a greeter will walk with you to the Welcome Center where you can register and, if you desire, you can be escorted to an appropriate Bible study class.
