Sunday School Program: At First United Methodist Church in Clarion, we try to provide Sunday School opportunities for all of our parishioners. We are currently following our summer Sunday School program.  The following is a ‘typical’ Sunday morning schedule during the rest of the year. We invite you to participate and look forward to worshiping with you!

8:30 am: Pathfinders:  The Pathfinders music group practices at 8:30 Sunday mornings in the choir room.  Any youth, grades 5-12, who enjoys singing or can play an instrument is welcome. Pathfinders are under the direction of Sue Ann Boyles.

9:00 – 9:30 am: Children’s Bells & Chimes (Second Floor) We are so proud of our children sharing God’s love through the gift of music.

9:30 – 9:45 am: Coffee and Donuts for adults: Fellowship Hall (Basement)

9:30 – 9:45 am: Singing Angels (choir) for K – 4rd grades with the children singing in the 11:00 am worship service once a month during the school year. (Second Floor) Singing Angels is under the direction of Mimi Vowinckel, Peggy Jo Staab, Sue Ann Boyles.


We offer four adult Sunday School Classes:

Adult Discussion Class: Room 221  – Dr. Tom Miller.  This class enjoys inspirational book studies.
Trailblazers: Room 102 – Mrs Gwen Rhoades
Rock of Ages: Room 004 – Ms. Mary Brooks
In His Steps: Room 220 – Dr Joshua Diehl and Mrs. Amy Diehl Current topics with biblical-based understanding.

Childcare is available for infants & toddlers up to age 4 at the 9:45am Worship/Sunday School hour and during the 11:00am worship service.  Our nursery is located on the first floor, Room 106, off the Gathering Area.  Our nursery supervisor is Cathy Chuculate.

During our 11:00 Service, we have a Children’s Message weekly followed by Children’s Time activities.

Coordinator of Christian Education: Marlene Steiner
Sunday School Secretary: Beverly Pasquarette
All of our staff and volunteers have security clearances.

YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS SCHEDULE (grades 7 – 12): This “class” for those youth in grades 7 thru 12 has a broader scope of activities than a traditional Sunday School class.  The youth rotate among activities that include two structured classes with a lesson each month, attendance at the alternative worship service at 9:45 am (third Sunday of each month when the Youth Messengers sing), and breakfast at County Seat.  Youth meet in the classroom and walk to the County Seat together.  The Christian Education Committee covers the cost of the breakfast so there is no need to bring money.  Should there be a fifth Sunday of a month the group will have an additional lesson.
