Sunday Discipleship (Formerly Sunday School):

Sunday Discipleship is a vital ministry at the Palace of Praise, and all are encouraged to attend.  The Sunday Discipleship program includes discipleship classes for all age groups with subjects including apologetics and creating a biblical worldview for youth and older adults (II Peter 3: 15), reading through and learning about specific books of the bible and/or learning of key biblical figures, and learning of the character of God through biblical research and understanding of key biblical historical events. 


Sunday Discipleship is weekly from 9:30 am to 10:15 am.  Being right before the worship service @ 10:30 am, makes attending convenient for learning and provides an excellent opportunity to 1) learn from highly skilled and passionate teachers and co-teachers, 2) share personal experiences and understanding of scripture, and 3) ask pertinent questions concerning scripture, and provides for a smooth transition into worship.
