Sebring marks 70 years of teaching Sunday School

The senior adult ladies class of Center Point Baptist Church, Scottsboro, honored its teacher, Velma Sebring, on Aug. 25 for 70 years of teaching Sunday School.

During the morning worship service, the class presented Sebring with a quilt they made her. The quilt included photos of every member of the class, along with a message to Sebring that said “Number one teacher.” A celebration tea was held that afternoon with about 200 people. 

As part of the celebration, several Sunday School classes personalized banners with special messages to Sebring, which were displayed in the church’s fellowship hall.

Sebring, who is Center Point’s oldest active member, first began teaching at Randall’s Chapel United Methodist Church, Scottsboro, in 1938. She joined Center Point a few years later and has since served in several roles at the Tennessee River Baptist Association church, including her very first role as a Sunday School helper.

Sunday School class member Virginia Bradford was led to the Lord at age 11 by Sebring. “She taught children for a lot of years” and then decided to teach adult ladies, Bradford said. “She’s a wonderful teacher. She is always prepared.”
