At First United Methodist Church Elgin, our Sunday school classes start at 10:00 a.m. and end about 10:50 a.m. each Sunday morning.

Sunday School at First United Methodist Elgin is a time-honored tradition that serves a broad range of ages and needs.  There is a class for everyone that serves the educational needs of a diverse and mobile congregation.  At each age level, opportunities for Bible Study, theological exploration, and spiritual growth are offered so individuals can explore the intersection between faith and everyday life.  Each class is designed to provide age-appropriate, meaningful and challenging study, good fellowship, ministry opportunities and church involvement.

The Sunday School curriculum used at First United Methodist Church Elgin is from Feasting on the Word.  This innovative resource explores one of the lectionary passages in ways suitable for all participants.  Each age level provides comprehensive, accessible biblical background for teachers from four perspectives.  This curriculum begins with a solid scriptural and theological base for leaders and invites leaders and learners deeper into the rhythm of the church year.  It utilizes a common Bible passage for all learners, making it easy for families to learn and live out their faith together.
