Christian Education

Christian ministry for adults of all ages is an important part of the life of FUMC. For starters, come be a part of one of our Sunday School Classes.

Wednesday nights in the fall, winter and spring we offer a meal at 5:00 p.m. (menu’s weekly in the messenger) for $6. Per person and children under 6 eat free, with a family cap of $20 per family.  A variety of classes for adults is offered at 6:00 p.m. 

Though many are a mixture of ages, here are some of the more specific offerings:

Sonshine Class
20 to 30’s

Formed in 2010, and facilitated by Bill Jordan and Megan Smith, the Sonshine Class is comprised of young adults, including singles and married couples, with and without children. We welcome dynamic discussion on a wide range of topics in a relaxed group atmosphere. We consider a variety of viewpoints on topics that range from biblical truths to current events and everything in between. Lessons are led by class members or guest speakers that bring a broad diversity of perspectives. The group enjoys learning from each other through lively dialogue, creating friendships, and focusing on faith. Class socials, including an annual Summer Cook-out and Christmas Party, are always lively, and actively promote fellowship outside of the church.

Cornerstone Class

Couples and singles of the Cornerstone class engage a wide variety of faith topics through discussion and lecture formats. In this class you'll find and develop relationships in an environment of acceptance and diverse perspectives.  

 

Ferguson Class

The Ferguson Class is a "3-D Experience:"

  • Diverse - The people of the Ferguson Class are young, old, young at heart, retired, semi-retired and rich in experience
  • Devoted - The people of the Ferguson Class are devoted. They are devoted to showing up for class, participating while they're there, setting and example for each other and holding and living the tenants of the Church and sound Christian principles without being pushy or judgmental.
