Growing in grace.... Serving with love.

Christian Education & Bible Study

 
At Foothills UMC we feel that having Adult Christian Education available is important so that one’s spiritual journey has outlets for continuing the learning and sharing process.  These times offer adults a place to take all they know and understand about the Bible and the type of life Jesus led, and look deeper –a time to ask questions of how and why events happened , and how those events affected the people whose lives they touched. A time for those who don’t have understanding to search for it among a loving group living through the words of scripture who are finding connections between Biblical events and people with how the world is now.
 
The Adult Christian Education Committee (ACEC) has put together various opportunities throughout the year for adults to share community while learning.
 

Sunday Morning Adult Studies, 10:30 AM

Adult studies are offered year-round on Sunday mornings.  These classes cover a broad selection of topics, often cross-referencing different faiths and religions from around the world.  The classes sometimes use CD’s and DVD’s to bring in viewpoints and information from others outside our community.  
 
 

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

The Wednesday Evening Bible Study is offered year-round, with occasional breaks for spiritual renewal during times when alternate Bible Study opportunities are presented. This class is taught in the community as a way to offer God’s love / a way to know him through an inviting opportunity for the unchurched to find Him outside of church. All are welcome. Class is held at 7 PM and offers free coffee and dessert.
This Bible Study works its way through the books of the Bible week by week. Sometimes a certain book is focused on at length, other times only certain passages are looked into. A great introduction to the Bible for the unchurched and a wonderful way to delve further into scripture for the person who knows the bible well.

Seasonal Bible Study

At various times throughout the year there are other opportunities to enhance spiritual learning through study at FUMC.
