Explore the Bible Sunday School Department

Directors: Dr. Pat Odom and Bill Huff
Room 253

Teachers: Dr. Pat Odom, Mr. Anthony Adamson, Mrs. Diane Singer
Associate Teachers:  Dr. Leonard (Marty) Martinec, Joe Harris, Deloris Funderburk
Outreach Leader:  Jackie Huff
Secretary:  Lucy Glover
Web Coordinator:  Lynda Hall Romero

Teaching Format:  The format our teachers primarily use is teacher-led discussions. The teachers rotate on a monthly basis. We have a brief opening assembly to review prayer needs, to hear praise reports and to acknowledge birthdays. The remaining time is devoted to Bible study.

Curriculum:  We are a Spirit-led, Bible-centered Department. We use "Explore the Bible" dated literature, published by Lifeway Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. This curriculum provides for a study through the Bible in a nine year cycle. The 1998 Statement of The Baptist Faith and Message is the doctrinal guideline. Scripture is taken from the New International Bible. We occasionally use optional studies; primarily those suggested in our literature. See our entry in the Adult listing in the people section for the current quarterly teaching schedule.

Mission Project:  Our mission project for the past several years has been in support of our FBC food pantry.  Several of our members also participate in home and foreign mission projects.

Social Activities:  Activities include open-house gatherings in our members homes, finger food breakfast before Sunday School and after-church restraurant outings. We try to have at least two or these type functions each year.
