Welcome to Community UMC Adult Ministry!
Our Adult Ministry & Formation opportunities help adults connect to one another and to grow and serve in Christ.
Adult Formation & Bible Study
Sundays at 11 a.m. in Classroom 4.
All are welcome to join us as we engage Scripture and let it move from our minds to our lives through prayer, song, study, discussion, service, mutual support, and fellowship. Facilitator Mike Gorman is a Scripture professor and has been leading classes at Community UMC for 15 years.
Sundays at 11 a.m. in Classroom 3
Formerly Friends in Service to Him, this weekly gathering uses book studies and is facilitated by John Holly. All are welcome to join.
Sundays at 11 a.m. in the Library
We study the Bible methodically and deeply (good for Methodists!), one verse at a time. We take to discuss, digest and reflect on the entire Bible, the history and culture of Bible times and how the scripture is applicable now. All are welcome to join.
Small Group Opportunities
The Good Book Club is an intergenerational group that meets monthly. Each month we choose a new book related to spirituality and faith, and then gather to discuss. This growth group encourages one another in practice along the spiritual life journey while deepening faith, exploring social justice issues, developing Christian friendships and enjoying fellowship with each other. The group meets monthly on the 4th Sunday of the month at 4 pm. All are welcome. Click here for the 2023 reading list.

Modeling and teaching values, such as lovingkindness, hospitality, hope, belonging, and mutual respect in active service with those too often overlooked and underserved.
