Together with public worship, Sunday Schools of American
Methodism were a central part of the local church virtually from the beginning.
In the middle of the 1960s, the Warrenton Church had two active adult Sunday School
classes, the Luther Lee Allison Class for men and women and the Ruth Edwards Class for
older women. Each class followed a similar format using the Cokesbury
Quarterly lead by a teacher, but with little discussion.
this time, the Church had a growing number of young couples, many with small
children, and a growing number of young singles. From this group, many thought
they would prefer a class more focused on a discussion group, which took biblical
principles and applied them to their contemporary lives. The
discussion leaders used a variety of sources materials.
Among the leaders through the years
were: two pastor's wives, Clair Cosby and Magdalene Wooten; Walter Jones, a true Bible scholar, in whose memory the class's chairs were given; Dr. Walter Nicklin; Shore Robertson, who continued from the
beginning until 2017; and Bill Mitchell, who continues to this day. Rev. Dr.
Ruth Ann Campagna has more recently assisted in discussion leadership.
From the early days when the Class met in the kitchen of the old church building hence the name, "Kitchen Discussion Class" to today meeting in a modern classroom with modern audio visual equipment and materials, hundreds have been blessed in their spiritual walk. Through all these years, members have experienced true Christian love in this small group in the class setting, fellowship dinners, and support and prayer in times of need. The members have always reached out to others in need within the church and the community.
