Learning In Community
Sunday classes meet from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Southern Hills offers Sunday morning Bible classes for all ages. Classes for children are organized by age and grade-level. Middle school, high school, and university students have classes specially designed for them. And for adults, we have a wide range of classes grouped by life-stage, interests, and teaching styles. In each class, we meet to study the Word of God in community, and to experience fellowship and encouragement. Our current adult classes are listed below.
We Need To Talk
This class, primarily for adults in their 20s through 40s, many of whom have young children, is intended to prepare class participants for important conversations with their children. Young people in today’s culture face never-before-seen challenges in areas such as technology, cell phones, and social media. And even longstanding topics like friends, race, sports, church, sex, and money have new challenges in the complex society our children are growing up in. By discussing these topics, parents will be better equipped to have meaningful conversations with their own children when the time is right.

The Story of Jesus (Begins September 10)
This class is primarily for adults 55 and over, but is open to all ages. This class series will be a parallel study of the three Gospel accounts, Matthew, Mark, and Luke, as they tell the story of Jesus from his birth to his ascension. John's gospel account will enrich areas where it coincides with the "Synoptic" gospel accounts.
