Median Adults

Some of the most important things that happen at church take place in the context of the small Sunday School Communities where our lives and our faith intersect. At South Main, there are amazing opportunities to serve and lead during the middle stages of life.

As our lives change, we often face complicated challenges—parenting youth, dealing with aging parents, looking ahead to empty nests, work and career issues, and sometimes health concerns. In the context of these kinds of challenges and opportunities, we begin to live out who we truly are. South Main's adult Sunday School communities are places where we can support one another and grow into who God wants us to be.
