Classes and Groups


Believers (40+)

This group offers biblically based lessons  that are video-driven, followed by open discussions about how those concepts are to be practiced in our daily lives.  
Our meetings start at 9:15 (so we can end on time for the choir members to get to rehearsal by 10:30).

Introducing a new 10-week series, “Beatitudes from the Back Side, A Different Take On What It Means To Be Blessed”, by J. Ellsworth Kalas. Our first week is an introduction on Sunday, January 20, so it’s not too late to join us.

Meets at 9:15 in room B109.

C.H.R.I.S.T. (Multigenerational but most are 50s and 60s)

Christian Hearts Reborn in Spirit and Truth is open to all adults, married or single, all levels of faith. Our curriculum includes a variety of Bible study series where we dive into and explore the Bible, then discuss how it relates to issues we face every day in our lives. Some of the lessons are supported by short videos. What really makes our class “work” is the diversity of our group and the lively discussions we have each week. Our class has a team of leaders who facilitate these weekly discussions. Relationship building is a top priority for us, and we schedule sharing/fellowship time every 6 weeks. We would love to have you visit our class and share in our discussions!

Current Study: Starting on March 17. This will be a 6-week Lent study: “Entering the Passion of Jesus” by Amy-Jill Levine.

Meets at 11:00 a.m. in room C128-129  VIEW MAP

The Discovery Class is a discussion-based class that focuses on studying issues in our world, understanding different perspectives, and encouraging one-another in Christ-like responses.  We are a small group class that strives to ask questions and seek answers through thoughtful discussion, and we offer a non-judgmental place to express diverse ideas.  

January will be a study & discussion of Heaven & the afterlife.
February we will study Paul.

Genesis (Senior Adults)

Suncreek’s longest standing Sunday morning class.  We typically begin with a short video followed by a lesson and group discussion. 

Current Study: 6-week study called "Pattern of Evidence, Exodus", narrated by Kevin Sorbo.  The study combines a scientific investigation with a retelling of the Exodus story.

Open Door (Ages: 30-45)

Welcome to the Open Doors class! We are an adult class comprised largely of couples and individuals (ages 30’s-40’s), many with preschool to middle school-aged children. In addition to our weekly Sunday morning gatherings, we hold multiple group social events throughout the year, both for the family and just the adults. Our class also sponsors a family each Christmas through the Suncreek UMC Christmas Family Connection program. 

Current study: 7-week study on the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn

Seekers (Ages: 50+)

The Seekers Class explores a wide range of topics based on the Bible and Bible related material, including books and DVD’s.  Teaching is shared by a team of class members supplemented by occasional guest teachers.  To encourage fellowship we have quarterly potluck brunches during class time, lunches, movies and dinners on a semi-regular basis and an annual Christmas Party.  We support mission work within and without the church through donations and volunteer work.  Though we come from different religious backgrounds, the Seekers are unified by our devotion to Jesus Christ.

Current Study:  On March 3rd Mike Nowlin will begin teaching a series of six lessons based on Adam Hamilton's Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet. We will be looking at the life and teaching of Moses and how they compare with those of Jesus. Hamilton has put together some good footage of the places where Moses lived and walked, so we can all enjoy a kind of Biblical travelogue in the process.

We will take a break from our lessons and have a potluck brunch on March 24th in the Round Room. All are welcome!

Wesley Class (Multi-gen)

Always open to those wanting to learn and move forward on the Spiritual Journey, the Wesley Class is centered on following Jesus Christ, emphasizing the historic traditional Christian faith, and developing a Wesleyan understanding of God’s grace and salvation.  We learn United Methodist doctrine and learn how to practice both personal and social holiness by using the Holy Bible and other scripture-based media to deepen our pursuit of discipleship. 

Meets at 9:30 in C128. VIEW MAP

Young Adults (Ages 21-35)

We are a group of singles who desire to belong to a faith-based community of fellowship, nurture & support as we face the stress and challenges of “adulting” in life after college.  We meet monthly at various off-site locations for fellowship and relationship building.  In the future, we hope to incorporate additional opportunities for Bible study and spiritual growth.  We will not meet on January 8, but will resume late January.
