Adult Sunday School & Small Groups


Below are listings of our Sunday School classes and other small groups for adults. We encourage you to find the class and/or groups that best meet your needs. Please, take all the time you need to visit as many gatherings as possible, and reach out to the leaders of each group to find where you will feel most comfortable. We want you to be plugged in at Parkway Hills United Methodist Church to encourage your personal growth, as well as our church family growth!

The Fellowship class focuses on studying the Bible from beginning to end, one book at a time. They share prayer requests and pray for each other. Often, members work together on church and mission projects, as well as enjoy getting together for class parties at the homes of members.

Grace class materials are selected based on interest, usually a book or a video series. Focus of each study is to seek to understand God’s role in our world, our place in the world, and our responsibilities to God and others. An open-discussion forum is how the class is structured, providing a safe place to ask any questions. Grace class strives to support members in their faith journey, no matter where on that journey each member might be. All are welcome.

The Open Doors class can best be described as multi-generational, as its youngest member is in her 20s and its oldest member is in his 90s! This is a discussion-based class using the Adult Bible Study series.

Pathfinders is a multi-generational class with members ranging in age from late 30s up. The program of study is selected via class input with topics typically rotating between studies of books of the Bible and a current book or subject. The discussion-type atmosphere aspires to further each member's knowledge of Bible content and find practical application of that knowledge. While everyone is welcome, class members are mostly married couples, with some single, divorced, and widowed members.
