Sunday School Classes

Sunday School is an integral part of discipleship and faith development. It is a dedicated time each week to participate in discussion, grow, learn, and ask questions about your faith and the Bible.

Vinton Baptist has a variety of Sunday School classes for adults, as well as age specific classes for children and youth. Our adult classes are grouped by age, gender, biblical study format, or topical interest. Our classes also enjoy fellowship and missions with one another outside of the classroom.

Sunday School is an incredible way to connect and fellowship with others who are on the same faith journey as you. Our groups and classes also offer opportunities to serve God through missions and discipleship. Please see Whitney Russell for any questions or to set up a class visit.
