Sue Holter with the Center 4Life Learning said, “All courses are led in person by qualified instructors in an informal and relaxed environment on the campus of United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. Many of our classes involve hands-on instruction, and many encourage class participation. We offer two six-week semesters in the spring and fall.”
Holter added, “Many of our instructors have been presenting for us for several years. Some have approached with new interesting topics. Some we have recruited from the local community. Some are members of the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. Others are current and retired professors from Hillsborough Community College and from FSU. At the end of each semester, we ask our students to suggest new topics. Based on their suggestions, we are currently looking for instructors in French, Italian, bridge and creative arts.”
The college was established in 1976 as the Community Church College by the United Community Church. In 2019, it was moved to United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, located at 1971 Haverford Ave. in Sun City Center, and the name was changed to Center 4Life Learning.
