Adult 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. Most groups are designed according to age groupings, some are gender-based, and a few are based on studies of specific issues. For additional information, contact Associate Pastor, Dr. David Hull at dhull@spdl.org.

Classes include:

  • EEE/George Ray
    In 2017, the EEE and George Ray classes merged to form one group for study and fellowship. The original EEE—“Earnest, Enthusiastic Endeavor”—was organized in 1924 at the old Second Baptist Church, Washington Street and Capitol Avenue. The class motto when the class was organized was “Where the Young Man Steps into the Church.” The class started the “Helping Hand Fund” in 1969 to help with educational expenses for nursing students. Begun in the early 1950’s, the original George Ray class for young men was named for its original teacher, George Ray, a Georgia Tech graduate. New members have been added since its inception to continue the classes’ vision and mission.
