Young Adult Sunday School
We call ourselves the “Young Adult” class, but we have no age restrictions. If you believe you are a “young adult”, or perhaps are “young” to the study of the Bible, then you are welcome! Other than the all-church studies that we occasionally do, our curriculum is: The Bible.
We have studied Genesis, part of the Proverbs, Luke, James, and are currently studying Acts. Our approach is simple and casual. We have open discussions about God’s Word and questions are encouraged. Also, there is no homework (except for all-church studies). Join us downstairs on Sunday mornings from 10:00-11:00am.
Young Adult Sunday School Leaders
Sally Riddle, Youth Sunday School Co-Leader
My family moved to Columbus in January of 1996. Our neighbor across the street invited me to BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) and I accepted. This has proved to be one of the most important decisions of my life. Even though I had been in church since infancy, I was basically biblically illiterate. BSF was the vehicle God used to get me into His Word and the discipline of His Word saved me. Ever since, I have been involved in sharing His Word by leading Bible studies, teaching VBS, and presently co-leading the Young Adult Sunday School class at Asbury. Every time I open my Bible God reveals His character, His truths and how to apply them to my life. This is the process I use to teach Sunday School: looking in the Bible verses we are studying each week for God’s character traits, His truths and His applications of thesetruths to our lives. It is not good enough to just know the truths in the Word you must put these truths into action through your hands, feet, mouth and heart.
I have been married for 40 years to my husband Bruce. We have 4 children Eric (Jen), Suzanne (Jonathan), Kurt (Amelia) and Maria and 2 grandchildren, Nela and Isaac. I enjoy IU sports, gardening, walking, baking and cooking and time with my God , family and friends.

Favorite Quote: “If I were ever prosecuted for my religion, I truly hope there would be enough evidence to convict me.” John Wooden
Favorite Scripture: Habakkuk 3:117-19 “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in the God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength: He makes my feet like the feet of a deer,He enables me to go on the heights.”
Kim Schultz, Youth Sunday School Co-Leader
I personally came to realize the value of Bible study after completing a number of Bible studies both within Asbury and outside of Asbury. Bible Study, especially through Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) has deepened my faith while helping me to know who God is, and that He has a plan for my life. Therefore, the Bible is vibrant and I consider it to be a foundation for the lives of believers. That is why I am anxious to share it with others.
Paul and I have been married for 37 years and we have 2 adult daughters who are married and live in Columbus. We also have 3 wonderful grandchildren whom we love to spend time with. We are very fortunate to live next door to my parents, Chuck and Janet VanNatta, who have been wonderfully supportive in very many ways. Other than the Bible, my favorite book is Charlotte Bronte’s “Jane Eyre.” I reread it every few years, and I think I have seen every movie version. Reading, in fact, is probably my favorite hobby, but I also enjoy music, playing harp, quilting, traveling, cooking, and hanging out with family.
