ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL

Every Sunday morning, adults of all ages and from all walks of life gather to grow in their relationship with God and to be nourished by and through His Word. These groups conveniently meet during both Worship hours (9:30 and 11:00 a.m.). If you would like additional information about one of these classes, please contact Nancy Spence, Program Coordinator.

The Faithful 9:30 a.m. in Room 221
This group lives up to their name as they are committed to coming together each week to study the Bible.

The Journey 11:00 a.m. in Kitchen on lower level of Education Building
The Journey class began early in 2013 and quickly grew to a group of dedicated members who study a variety of material as well as engage in meaningful conversation.

The Wesley Class 11:00 a.m. in Room E223
This class is perfect for someone who wants to participate in a Bible study, but can't make it work with their schedule.This is an ongoing class on Sunday mornings led by Rev. Sam Halverson.

WEEKDAY BIBLE STUDIES  

The Adult Ministry offers many opportunities for growth and Bible study during the school year. The following Bible studies are coming this Fall. For more information, contact Nancy Spence at nspence.bumc@gmail.com.

epic of eden.jpgEpic of Eden: A Christian Entry into the Old Testament
Teaching Leader: Rev. Dr. Brent Ward
Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.
August 15-September 19; continued January 9-February 13

Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT? To finally make sense of it? In this study, the Old Testament is presented in a usable, comprehensible history of God's redeeming grace--a story that runs from the Garden of Eden to the garden of the New Jerusalem.

This 12-week study will be divided into two 6-week segments. Join Pastor Brent in this fall on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. 

Half Truths cover.jpgHalf Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say
Teaching Leader: Rev. Dr. Tara Paul
Mondays at 7:00 p.m. or Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m.
August 7 & 8-September 11 & 12

Join Pastor Tara in this 5-week DVD study by Adam Hamilton that explores popular sayings that miss the point. For example, consider the following sayings:

  1. Everything happens for a reason.
  2. God helps those who help themselves.
  3. God won’t give you more than you can handle.
  4. God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  5. Love the sinner, hate the sin.

All true? Not so fast. We’ve heard these phrases all of our lives, but in Hamilton’s new book Half Truths, you’ll learn that, although they capture some element of truth, when compared to the wisdom found in Scripture, they’re really just popular sayings.


The Amazing Collection.pngAmazing Collection Bible Studies
Teaching Leaders: Jill Freudenberg & TBA 
Two Groups on Tuesdays at 10 a.m.
Begins September 12

The Amazing Collection enables students of Scripture to get the big picture of God and His Word by studying a book of the Bible each week. Books covered this year will be Romans to Revelation. The workbook, written for people with busy lives, will help you understand the purpose, theme, history and spiritual application of each book covered.
