Adult Sunday School at Fairview UMC is a place to connect and to grow deeper in faith with Jesus Christ. Every Sunday School class has its own “personality,” and we encourage people to feel free to visit several classes until they find “one that fits.” There are classes for couples, singles, women, men, and mixed groups. Classes meet at 9:45 am unless otherwise noted.
