All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

First United Methodist Church, Tallassee seeks to connect adults to the Word of God and to one another, engaging them in the life of our congregation and in ministry to others.  We provide a number of opportunities for adults to become involved in small group and Bible study, fellowship, and outreach.
Sunday School
Classes are offered from 10:00 – 11:00 am on Sunday mornings, allowing participants to fellowship with their church brothers and sisters within a context of deeper spiritual focus and study.  With a variety of classes to choose from, there is a place for everyone to belong!
