We are seeking to be like Christ

Christian Formation

    
       

We have a variety of Christian Formation opportunities for
Adults
Youth
Children

 
  • We consider Christian Formation to be the lifelong journey of growing in faith. Through prayer, worship, study, fellowship, and mission we can experience spiritual growth in our lives.
  • We recognize that Christian Formation is the continual process that gives purpose and meaning to our lives as followers of Christ.  UUMC strives to offer opportunities for learning and growth and support for one another as we seek to be like Christ.
  • In addition to the age-specific opportunities below, we have events throughout the year for all ages, such as our Fall Fest and seasonal workshops, e.g., during Lent. 

Adults

We recognize that our Christian faith journey continues throughout our lives. Therefore, our church offers adults a variety of opportunities for learning and growth.

Sunday Morning at 9:30 a.m.:

Chapel Class

          Led by Mary Norman and Millie Scarlett-Smith

Located in the Chapel

Pastor's Small Group Study (Robinson Room) - Resumes October 5th, 2014
 
 
We will explore four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compare the beliefs of each with Christianity using Adam Hamilton's book, Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask.  
 
In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.

Youth Activities

United Methodist Youth Fellowship - Our young people in grades 6 through 12 get together for a range of activities that focus on:

faith + fellowship + fun!

Children

Sunday School
Once a month partway through the 11 a.m. service, children from preschool and older leave to go to Sunday School. In their age appropriate classrooms, children are taught using the "Rock Solid" motivating Christian curriculum.
 
Nursery
We offer a nursery for babies and toddlers during the 11 a.m. service. The nursery, located downstairs, provides a variety of toys and cribs for children's comfort and enjoyment. Caring church members provide a loving and safe environment for the children from 10:50 a.m. until after the worship service.
