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.  On September 2, we are starting a 6 week series focusing on the Old Testament “Prophets and Kings”, seeing where the recorded events occurred and putting these Bible stories in the physical and cultural contexts of the time in which each was written.  After that, we intend to use a 6 week Adam Hamilton study on The Call, the life of Paul. 

Meets at 9:30 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!  

Oct 14:  The Canaanite Woman 
Oct 21:  We will begin a 5-week study using the book "Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity” by Adam Hamilton.

Discovery (All Ages: 20s-80s)

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.  We are studying the book Unafraid by Adam Hamilton until September 16.  After that, we will learn about Gnosticism and how it shaped Christian beliefs.

Seekers (Ages: 50+)

About Us:
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.

Coming Up: 
Starting on September 16th Johnny Walker will teach several lessons on Miracles, God's Nature in Creation and the Chosen Nation.  Following that series Mike Nowlin will teach a multiple-week series on Rob Bell's "Love Wins."  From November 11th to December 16th Dorothy Nowlin will be leading the discussion on "Not a Silent Night" by Adam Hamilton.  Class will NOT meet on November 25th, December 23rd, or December 30th.

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. 

Sept 9    Wesley Class will watch and discuss a sermon by Rev. Kathleen Baskin-Ball for those who remember her and those who never met her.

Sept 16 We begin a six-week study called The Gospel According to John Wesley – A deeper look at Wesleyan theology for both life-long United Methodists and members from other denominational backgrounds who have found a home in the United Methodist Church

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.  Our next gathering will be on Monday, September 24 @6:30pm.  We’ll start at Starbucks @ McDermott and Hwy 75 to meet everyone, then head to Top Golf in Allen for some fun!
