Sunday School provides ways to continue growth in your faith. 

Here at 1st UMC Maryville we offer Sunday School classes for people of all ages.

As we continue following COVID-19 safety protocols not all classes are meeting at this time or are meeting in different ways (or at different times).  

We are also offering online options for Children's Sunday School for families that want to use it.  

We hope to see you in Sunday School soon!





Youth Sunday school is open for youth in 7th through 12th grade.

Currently the Youth Sunday School Class meets in Room 153. 

Youth Fellowship meets on Sunday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:00 pm at the Friendship Shelter.
