Sunday School Classes and Small Groups

Our Sunday School classes and small groups are a vital part of Adult Discipleship at Mt. Sylvan. 


We have Sunday School classes for every age group, and they meet Sunday mornings at 9:30am.

Small groups meet throughout the week, both on and off the church campus.

    SMALL GROUPS:


    4Cs Class

    Thursday mornings from 10:30am to 12:00pm

    This women's group meets in person in the chapel and also via Zoom.


    The name 4Cs comes from words we would like to have guide us as we strengthen our faith together: compassion, community, caring, and concern.  Our group consists of confidentiality, purpose, schedule, acceptance, and praying for each other.

    In the last few years, we have been studying The Upper Room Disciplines, a book of daily devotions that is published each year.  If you are looking for a Bible study, please come check us out.  We have a wonderful group who enjoy studying God's word and fellowshipping together.
