Sunday School

Every Sunday during the school year, we have two Sunday School classes that meet: one for elementary students and one for adults. Sunday School begins at 9:30am and ends around 10:15am, giving participants an opportunity to enjoy Fellowship Time before Sunday Worship begins at 10:30am.

Read on below for more information about these ways to grow your faith!

One-Room Model

We know that Sunday school shouldn't be a time of entertainment, but engagement. It shouldn't just be a time where children receive information, but where they share it, as well. We have a strong commitment to building up our children to be active, growing disciples of Jesus Christ.

Because of that commitment, our children's Sunday school operates with the One-Room Model. Like the old one-room schoolhouses from the prairie days, this model doesn't separate children based on age. Instead, it fosters an environment where children of different ages can learn alongside one another and even teach one another. A fifth-grader can take ownership of her faith when she helps a first-grader absorb the lesson.

We think the One-Room Model is an effective model for making young disciples, and we know your child will have a blast!


Our Adult Sunday School class meets upstairs in our Choir Room at 9:30am.

We follow the model of a historic prayer of the Church, thanking God for the ability to absorb Scripture's truth by reading, marking, learning, and inwardly digesting it. This "Absorb" model has us take a deeper dive into the Scripture that our Sunday Worship focuses on that morning.

Participants will come away from our adult Sunday School with a greater appreciation for God's Word, and go into worship better prepared to hear God speak to them.

Safe Gatherings Approved

At Wahoo First UMC, all of our volunteers who regularly interact with children, youth, or vulnerable adults are certified through Safe Gatherings, which includes abuse prevention training and a comprehensive background check.

We care about the well-being and emotional, physical, and spiritual health of everyone in our church, especially children. So with Safe Gatherings, we have a system in place to ensure that well-being.
