SUNDAY MORNING CIRCLE SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
WHO: We are a group of ladies ranging in age from young adult to past retirement age, but we are all young at heart. Our average attendance is between 10-15. 
WHAT: Beth Rowe-West is our usual teacher. She reviews the study literature with us & then involves the class in group discussion. We study a wide variety of topics. Beth usually leads us through at least one of the United Methodist Women's study books each year. We also study current trends in the church and how world events affect the church and how the church is called to respond to these events, locally and globally. We have participated in lessons using the Nooma DVD series and Mickey Efird's Bible Study Series on The Birth narratives and the Passion Narratives. Our class decides which book or topic we want to study. We are always looking for interesting and relevant material.
WHEN: We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM. We try to finish the lesson around 10:30 AM so choir members can go to choir without missing the lesson. We then take a few minutes for UMW business and we try to be finished by 10:45 AM. 
WHERE: We meet in the Church library.
HOW: We are a discussion-based Sunday School Class.
OTHER: The Sunday Morning Circle is a Sunday School Class and a UMW circle. Because we are a UMW circle, we support the projects and causes of the UMW. The UMW Reading Program materials are located in our class space. We support and visit our special friends at Piedmont Crossing.
We take an offering each week that we use in a variety of causes, including a monthly Angel Food box donation, sponsoring a week of summer day camp for a child at the YMCA, and providing funds for many other mission projects. We also participate in The UMW's "hands-on" projects by bringing food or supplies for designated mission projects through out the year.
We don't have formal events or outings, but we do support each other in our times of need and times of joy. We are a warm group of women who enjoy being together while leaning how to be better people in God's world. We welcome any visitors. If you are already a member of another circle, you can still be a part of our Sunday School Class, without giving up your circle.

FELLOWSHIP SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
WHO: The Fellowship Class is a medium sized class consisting of couples and singles who are generally forty years old and older. Potential members of any age are welcomed to join.
WHAT: Members of the class decide on the curriculum which is most often the Adult Bible Studies literature. During the summer and special seasons, other short studies may be used. 
WHEN: We meet during the regular Sunday School hour (9:45 AM - 10:45 AM. Generally a social time and class business is taken care of first with the lesson beginning around 10:00.)
WHERE: The Fellowship Sunday School Class meets on the third floor of the main building in Room ????.
HOW: Several members volunteer to teach on a rotating basis with the format being of a discussion nature.
OTHER: This class is mission-minded with members being very involved in all aspects of Memorial’s church life. As its name implies, fellowship is a key aspect of this class. At least quarterly, members gather for fellowship and to experience a number of activities such as bicycling, game nights, picnics and going out to eat.
