Sunday School

quarterly2At Benson Baptist, Sunday School is a central piece of our vision to connect with God, each other, and the world. Through focused time on Bible study and discipleship, we connect to God. Through spiritual discussion and socialization we connect with each other. And through embracing opportunities to serve God outside of the church walls, we connect to the world. All of that connecting makes our Sunday School classrooms pretty exciting places—the only thing they’re missing is you!

What members say: The YAMS class offers a tremendous opportunity for people on the front-end of adulthood to journey together in connecting to God, each other, and the world. We’re more than a class; we’re a collection of friends, fellow pilgrims sharing life with one another as we travel the path of faith.

On an average Sunday, we can have people aged anywhere from their 30s to their 80s; we have males and females, marrieds and singles, theologically conservatives and theologically not-so-conservatives. We value the contributions and journeys of every member, knowing that through each of our experiences, God can make all of us stronger.

But through the love of Christ which brings us together, we’re so much more than the sum of our parts—we’re fellow pilgrims on the journey; we’re brothers and sisters in faith; we are, in a word, friends!
