Young Adults
Young Adults Class- Room 302
The FUMCOR Young Adult Sunday School class is a reconciling group made up of allies and queer persons who welcome and affirm all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We celebrate, uplift, and stand with persons of color and ethnic minorities. We also want to meet everyone where they are in regards to disability, mental health, and socio-economic status. Society has often let all of these people down, but we strive not to. Therefore, as followers of Christ, we are committed to upholding the baptismal vow to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves, and respect the dignity of every human being. We study scripture, church history & tradition, and social issues. We also fellowship together at least once a month. Contact Seth O'Kegley-Gibson if you have questions about the class or click here for more information on the Reconciling Ministries Network.
