“at Maranatha Baptist Church”

Scheduling an audience with any living U.S. President would be a virtual impossibility for the average person, but with President Carter it is as easy as going to church. And attending Sunday School will cost you nothing, unless you count the passing of the collection plate. Jimmy Carter teaching Sunday School is not a promotional gimmick. He has been teaching Sunday School most of his adult life, and he is the only American President to teach Sunday School while in office. President Carter presently teaches Sunday School at the Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, where he is also a deacon. Although the former President teaches most Sundays, it is always wise to check the church web site for dates he will be teaching before planning your visit. The best souvenir of your visit to Jimmy Carter’s Sunday School class will be your own picture taken with the former President and First Lady, but you will need to stay another hour for morning worship following Sunday School. After church, the expeditious photography line goes into full swing, with procedures such as have your camera ready to hand to the picture-taker, do not try to shake the President’s hand or put your arm around him, and take a single picture with your entire visiting group rather than individual pictures with each member of your party. Place image and description from Backroad Planet.

President Carter is not there every Sunday, but does teach with surprising regularity. See the full schedule on the church website at the 'read more' link here...

This a not-to-be missed experience! President Carter is currently 89 years old and still teaching Sunday School. We have visited twice, the second time on the Carters' 67th wedding anniversary. If you will be traveling anywhere in South Georgia, you must go!
