Following Jesus is a daily choice. You are invited to choose your own adventure as you find a place in our discipleship opportunities–small groups, Sunday school classes, meet-ups, work teams, mission trips and other places to connect with God and our community.
Adult Sunday School
Why Sunday School?
The heart of Methodism during the life of John Wesley was the Class Meeting. This was a small covenant discipleship support group where members were accountable to each other. They confessed their faults to one another, prayed for each other, and encouraged one another to love and good works. They examined the teachings of the Bible in light of actual personal experience and provided nurturing and equipping leaders. All Sunday School classes run from 9:40 – 10:40 am.
Community Bible Study
Community Bible Study is open to anyone who would like to discuss the scripture text from an upcoming Sunday Sermon or various books of the Bible. It is done over the lunch hour on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00 pm. Bring a brown bag lunch. Participants eat first, followed by a prayer, scripture and subsequent discussion.
The main goal of this Bible Study is getting people comfortable with reading, studying and discussing scriptures. It is an opportunity for our local community and neighbors to study and discuss the Bible and get acquainted with our pastoral staff and other Christians. So, we invite anyone who can get away from everything for one hour to listen to God’s message and discuss what is behind the stories.
“The Community Bible Study is one of the few opportunities I have as pastor to discuss scripture and its relevance to our lives in an intimate setting with members and guests. I often gain more from leading this Bible Study than I ever give.” -Rev. Don Lee
