Is it ok for a female to lead a Sunday school class for mixed adults? I'am a member of a American Baptist USA church been a member there for about 4yrs really like the church but just don't know about this one. We lost our pastor to retirment this week an intrim steps in next week and our adult Sunday school teacher will be gone next Sunday and was told that a female would be leading the class for him. The bible says 1 Timothy 1:12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or have authority over a man, but to be in silence. NKJV I asked the Deacon chairperson and he said yes she will teach the class.What do you think I should do? Go to the class, skip the class this one time and hope it doesn't come up again or just run!
