Sunday SchoolThere's always room for our faith to grow, and we're never too old to keep on learning. That's why here at Tempe First UMC, we offer Sunday School for the whole church family! Our children learn the stories of our faith, and the basics of Christian living. Our adult education classes on Sunday morning provide opportunities to engage one’s heart and mind in matters of theology, Bible study, contemporary issues, prayer and so on. In this way, we're all continually learning what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
