Adult Ministry

Sunday School

Paul rejoiced with the Colossians because they were “firmly rooted in Christ Jesus the Lord.”  They were “being built up in Him and established in their faith…and overflowing with gratitude.”  Col. 2:6-7

As seekers of God’s truth and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we adults at Greenville Alliance have several opportunities to help us to follow the Colossians’ example.  We hope the information below will encourage you to meet with those of like interest in your pursuit to grow in Christ.

New Sunday School opportunities vary in topic and in length.  Feel free to move as the Lord leads you.

Current Adult Sunday School Classes – 9:30 a.m.

  • The Book of John: Christian Education Center classroom – Led by Bill & Kathleen Sorg
  • Defeating Discouragement & Steadfast Living, 1 & 2 Thessalonians – Led by Pastor Jerry Hunter

Greenville Alliance Women

Our goals are:

  • Prayer ~ To enlist every fully devoted Christ follower of all generation in effective fervent prayer.
  • Missions ~ To engage in reaching the lost and persue active global involvement
  • Outreach ~ To encourage Christ followers to seek an intimate relationship with Him through intentional spiritual formation and to share it with others.

Service Projects:

We have many service projects for you to participate in such as saving…

  • Used all-occasion cards ~ for International Workers in Latin America
  • Used eyeglasses ~ for use in the Dominican Republic
  • Cancelled stamps ~ proceeds of the sale of used stamps go for Sunday School literature in Latin America

“God uses us to spread His knowledge everywhere like a sweet smelling perfume.  Our offering to God is this: We are the sweet smell of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are lost.”
~ II Corinthians 2:14b-15

Prime Time (20’s, 30’s, 40’s)

Adults in their 20s – 40s have a place to connect.  At Greenville Alliance Church, there are plenty of opportunities for spiritual, emotional, and physical growth for adults in this age group.

Young adults and young couples need a place to feel a sense of belonging and to live the intensity of their life with people who understand their current situation.  A unique opportunity to build community face to face, no internet connection required, is being offered to our adults who are in the PrimeTime of their life.  So if you find yourself in this category, why not come, why not belong?

The goal is to provide a variety of low-no cost events and growth opportunities for adults and young families.

Singles, Couples, Married people, men and women in their 20s through 40s are invited to come and belong to the activities, small groups, bible studies and events.  Child care is available when noted.  Events that are “kid-friendly” will be labeled that way.

If you have any questions about any events, please contact Jeff and Melissa Villard or Ben and Jill Winklevoss.
