First Mennonite Church Of San Francisco

Education Hour

During the fall, winter, and spring, we offer Adult Education Hour and Sunday School classes for children and youth from Preschool (3-4 years) to High School (9th-12th grade).

Overseen by our Adult Faith Formation Committee, our Adult Education Hour is a lively time of study and conversation. During our annual fall Back to the Basics series and Lent, we usually have a series of classes directly related to worship. At other times the education hours comprise single topics of interest to the community. Recent series and topics have included Faith & Technology; Troubling Hymn Texts; Keeping a Healthy Relationship; and Drawing from our Mennonite Heritage in Troubling Times. Visitors are welcome!

Overseen by our Children & Youth Faith Formation Committee, our Sunday School classes are beloved of children and their parents alike! Our youngest children gather to sing, share a Bible story, and create an art response. Older children engage in topics such as Jesus and Jesus' Followers; Food, Sustainable Living, and Justice; and The Challenge of Scripture. All Sunday School classes are activity based and include visual arts, singing, and /or storytelling. Sometimes the children or youth embark on field trips related to the topics they are studying.
