Liturgy Sunday School Class

Liturgy is a gathering of young adults around the ages of 18-24. This group is open to college students, graduate students, and young working professionals.

The name "Liturgy" is inspired by an ancient Greek term which translates "work of the people." In addition to forming friendships and building spiritual companionship, you can expect to meet others who share John Wesley's commitment to social holiness. Every week during the 10 am Sunday school hour, members of the group meet to assemble kits that go toward helping others in the community. These might include lunches for Arlington Urban Ministries, hygiene kits for our street friends, "I See You" boxes for survivors of domestic abuse, teacher appreciation kits for our school partners, etc.

Pastor Madison, who most often facilitates these gatherings, will share how these kits are connected to the church's wider theological mission and justice initiatives throughout the community. The end of our gatherings includes a time of reflection on a scripture passage that drives our work and points us back to God, our ultimate source of faith, hope, and love.

Lastly, members or visitors of the group are invited to take turns sharing "modern scriptures" (art, music, television, poetry, etc.) from which they draw truth and inspiration. You don't want to miss out!
