Adult ministry

FUMC offers a variety of opportunities for adults to grow in their faith and to serve others.  Our adults Sunday School classes offer not only fellowship but opportunities to grow in your faith through a wide-range of biblical studies.  We also offer more long-term in-depth Bible studies during the week.  At the heart of FUMC is our caring ministries that offer adults ways to serve by reaching out to others; you will want to be sure to explore all of these opportunities that include both local missions and international trips.  As an adult be prepared to turn your faith into actions here at FUMC!


  • BIBLE STUDY

    We believe that a knowledge and understanding of the Bible is important for growing Christians.  That is why we as a church have undertaken the challenge of "The Bible in 90 Days" in Sunday School and in small groups.  We will finish this study on April 10.  Who knows where our study of the Bible will lead us next?


    We like to offer Bible study in a variety of settings from long-term, in-depth studies to short                term ones.

  • SUNDAY SCHOOL

    Sunday School is for everyone - especially adults.  We have 10 classes to choose from, and each one has its own style of study and fellowship.
