Looking back at Sunday School Classes

Sunday School was taught on a regular basis under the direction of Mrs. Laura Robbins. In the beginning, the men never attended Sunday School classes. J.H. Robbins, husband of Laura Robbins, was the first man of the church to attend Sunday School classes. In the early 1920’s, Torrence Harer and wife, Irene, migrated down through the Appalachian Mountains from Pennsylvania doing mission work among lumber camps. They stopped in Byrdstown for a temporary stay. They loved the place so much they settled here permanently.

During their early years in Byrdstown they worked with both church and Sunday School. He also worked in other communities in the area on Sunday mornings and afternoons, returning to Byrdstown for the evening service. Mrs. Harer taught in Sunday School and Bible study, furnishing much of the needed literature. Other Sunday School workers serving during this period were: Laura Robbins, Queen Clark, Vera Huddleston, Laura Hassler, L.B. Hassler, Hattie Parris, Edna Huddleston, Minnie McDonald and Elva Huddleston.

In 1952, C.L. Holt, Edna Crouch, Genevee Asberry and Mary Altha Coe established a Sunday school in the Parker School Building, sacrificing their Sunday afternoons. This program lasted for 14 years.
