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.


Galatians: Receiving By Believing

This class is made up primarily of adults in their 20s through 40s, many of whom have young children. This series will explore the themes of the apostle Paul's epic letter to the Galatians, and how we receive God's promises by faith.

The Story of Jesus 

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.
