Education for Adults

9:45 a.m. Sunday School

The best way to find a small group for fellowship, scripture study and a caring community is to join a Sunday School class. Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church has classes for all ages and interests. Some groups are designed according to age groupings, some are gender-based, and some are based on studies of specific issues.


Kairos is loosely translated as “an opportune time.” This class of young professionals and students meets to study God’s word and its application to life. The class hopes to capitalize on the various intersections of life experience and community with members, the church, and the local community. The class focuses its time on Bible study on Sunday mornings, but also meets periodically for times of fellowship and ministry at other opportunities.

The three E’s stand for “Earnest, Enthusiastic Endeavor.” The class motto when the class was organized was “Where the Young Man Steps into the Church.” The class started a project in 1969 called the “Helping Hand Fund.” This fund assists young men and women with their educational expenses to become nurses.
