Each Sunday morning Green Pond United Methodist Church has many different opportunities for children and adults to become involved. We start at 10:00 AM with Sunday School. There are classes for every age, including three different adult classes. We have two senior adult classes that meet downstairs and an additional adult classes that meet upstairs. We encourage our members to visit a class to find the one that is right for you. This Sunday make it a point to come join one of our Sunday School Classes. There is no better place for Christian fellowship and study of God’s Word than in a weekly Sunday School Class. Come Join Us!
