Sunday Classes

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.
