At Heartland, we offer Sunday School programs for children from Pre-K through 6th grade, as well as adults (3 different classes).  Classes typically run from September through May (see our calendar for details).

The Pre-K through 6th graders explore lesson based most often on the Scripture of the Sunday (Lectionary-based) from Sparkhouse.

For Adults:

MASTERS (Mature Adults Studying Timely and Enthusiastic Religious Subjects) Class, led by Jim Hoffman: Grace Room
On Sunday, October 22nd , the MASTERS Class will be discussing “Prejudice and Discrimination” in our world today. We will be viewing an excellent DVD entitled “Prejudice: More Than Black and White”, and follow-up with discussion centered around an understanding of the roots of prejudice, the scope of prejudice and the results that come from prejudice. We will examine discrimination, stereotyping, and hatred — and discuss positive actions we can take at Heartland to prevent the negative aspects of prejudicial feelings and resulting violence.

Gospel According to the Movies, led by Pastor Alex Thornburg: Church Office
This class will be discussing how and where God can be found in the movies, current and classic.

Seekers Class: Where is Our Faith?, led by Rev. Dick Harken: Jubilee Room
This is a new class that will explore questions relevant to those seeking all things faithful:  What is your name for God?  Where do you find God in the news?  What is our Christian faith? What is forgiveness and why do we need it?
