The Christian Education ministry at Royal Lane is not merely another facet of our Church program. It is essential to our mission as a church. It is through our educational ministry that we seek better understanding of our own faith and growth as a community of Christ-followers.

- Grades 4-6
- Grades 7-9
- Grades 10-12
Sunday School Classes
Adult Sunday School classes meet weekly in the Education Building from 9:45 - 10:45 AM. All classes are inter-generational and open to all.
Led by Jack Mullinax & John Helms in Room 202.
This class is designed to help participants study Scripture seriously within the contest of the larger Christian tradition and, through the process, find their faith renewed and strengthened. The class enjoys open discussions which create a venue for participants to express their faith while respecting the views of other classmates
Led by Scott Bryant in Portable 1
Class members range in age from college students to senior adults. Members come to the class from a variety of faith backgrounds. The goal of the class is to help members move to a deeper knowledge and understanding of the principles and truths which form the foundation of our Christian faith.
Led by Nancy Ferrell in Room 204
The class is made up of a cross section of church members. The class culture is one of dialogue and questioning. The class reviews books and topics of interest and reflect on them for the purpose of applying new insights to our Christian journey. Most often the class uses book studies to spark conversation.
Led by Kristene Ruddle in Room 206
The class seeks to be inclusive and welcome folks of all ages and genders. (A quick peek into the class might lead one to believe it to be an all-women’s class; but, guys, you are welcome.) A portion of each class is devoted to sharing prayer concerns and answers to prayers.
Led by Sylvia & Dennis Turnbull in Room 208
Class members select, read, and discuss books and authors who have diverse theological ideas and opinions.
Led by Tex Quesada in Vickrey Hall
The class of five to ten individuals engages people in all age groups and backgrounds – some are brand new Christians, others have been in the church for many years.
Led by Bettie Meachum & Mike Jones in the Library
Multi-week introduction to our church (scheduled as needed).
