Bible Study & Sunday School
Simon Gilbert Sunday School Class
Open to all ages and both men and women. Studying Bible in Life, by David C. Cook, Comprehensive Bible Study: a weekly student Bible study book for all ages of adults. CBS covers all of the major passages and themes of the Bible by following the International Sunday School Lessons cycle. Each 13-week quarter of lessons focuses on a book or section of Scripture as part of a coordinated survey of the whole Bible. Includes the KJV and NIV versions for comparison, Scripture commentary, discussion questions, and "apply this to your life" activities and stories. Also lists daily Bible readings for further exploration of the Scriptures (these readings are keyed to the devotionals found in The Quiet Hour).
Seekers Sunday School Class
Study group, all ages welcome, and both men and women. Currently studying 'The Life Lessons with Max Lucado' series, brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God's Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection.
New Beginnings Sunday School Class
Mixed age ranges and both men and women. Studying, People of the Light, a 5 part Bible study and is designed primarily as a Lent study (though can be used at any time!)
We begin at the very beginning and look at the theme of Light in Genesis, then how the Bible uses light to describe the character of God, contrasting this with darkness. Then there is light which directs our way, how we might become lights in the world, and finally how we can live in the light!
Children's Sunday School
2 classes available. For age 3 and up, and nursery for 2 and under. Teaching foundational truths about Jesus and the bible. We also teach age appropriate worship songs.
Pastor's Bible Study
Discipleship within the context of the United Methodist heritage and tradition.
Prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness…this is what we commit to when we become members of The United Methodist Church, and it’s a big step. But A Disciple’s Path helps us look beyond membership, presenting an engaging approach to discipleship from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective. Discipleship is ongoing, so the 6-week study is perfect for new-member groups, but also works well in small groups of long-time members. It helps you develop spiritual practices, discover your unique gifts, and engage in ministry that brings transformation to your own life and to the lives of others and the world.
The Daily Workbook offers six weeks of daily readings (five per week), Scripture, a message for the day, and prompts for personal reflection.
Off Site Bible Study
This group meets off-site. Studying: Chasing Vines. Author Beth Moore gives us a new hope, revealing the abundant secrets of a fruitful, Kingdom-building, God-pleasing life. Tracing the images of vinedresser, vine, branch, and fruit through Scripture, and sharing stories from her own journey, Beth shows us how nothing in our lives is wasted. Not the place we've been planted. Not the painful pruning. Not even the manure that gets dumped on us when we least expect it.
Beth is convinced from Scripture that every person who knows Jesus is meant to thrive in fruitfulness. Life might not always be fun, but in Christ, it can always be immensely fruitful. Nothing is for nothing.
Join Beth on her journey of discovering what it means to chase vines--and learn how everything changes when we understand and fully embrace God's amazing design for growing us into fruitful, meaningful, abundant life.
