Adults at LCUMC have almost as much fun as the kids and youth! Whether we are having fellowship together in worship or in small group study, LCUMC is a place where lasting friendships are made. LCUMC Adult Ministries seeks to fulfill our church mission statement of Worshiping, Sharing, Serving and Winning Disciples for Christ. Our hope is that LCUMC will be a place where you will grow in your love for God and His Word, you can serve Christ, you will make new friends, and you will feel at home. Take time to find the class or small group that works for you. Any of the classes and small groups would be happy to have you.
Sunday School classes are meeting in-person. For more information about Sunday School Classes and Small Groups, email Info@LCUMC.org.
Led by Pastor Peter
Hosted by the Shepherds Class
10am on Sundays
Over the course of five weeks, we will delve into the lives of various biblical figures who exemplified the virtue of generosity in profound ways. Each week will focus on a single narrative passage from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing us to explore the nature of generosity.
Why focus on generosity? The Bible offers us a rich tapestry of stories that serve as models for generous living. These narratives invite us to reflect on our own acts of giving, urging us to go beyond mere transactions to transformative acts of grace. Generosity is a lifestyle, a reflection of God's abundant grace in our lives.
Week 1: The Widow's Offering (Mark 12:41-44)
Week 2: Abraham's Choice (Genesis 13:5-18)
Week 3: Elijah and the Widow (1 Kings 17:7-16)
Week 4: Ruth's Loyalty (Ruth 1:16-18)
Week 5: Biblical Generosity: A Definition (2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
Room 132, Education Wing
This is a class comprised of couples and singles who are sharing life’s many seasons. The Shepherds study the Bible, as well as other topics relevant to our lives. As working professionals, we lean toward studies that can be completed in class.
The Shepherds class also enjoy time together outside of class in activities and fellowship.
Room 134, Education Wing
This is a class comprised of adults (60’s and older) who enjoy hearing and discussing different ideas about scripture and the Christian experience. Most of our children are out of the house, so our interests have changed from “parenting” to “grand-parenting” and dealing with life in the mature years.
Room 135, Education Wing
The Voyagers are primarily comprised of single and married adults in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50's who study topics that enhance their Christian walk.
The class enjoys being together, whether it’s doing service projects around the church, eating dinner together at a restaurant, or gathering at someone’s home for a party and fellowship.
Room 154, Admin Wing and via Zoom
This is a class comprised of women of all ages who focus on values, service, and the family of God. The class offers lessons of hope, wisdom, generosity, love, integrity, courage, and humility.
This class emphasizes strengthening our relationship with God through the study of the Bible and Spirit-led discussions.
The Women of the Well have times of fellowship through luncheons and fun outings. They invite you to check them out.
Conference Room, Admin Wing
This is a class made up primarily of adults in their 60s, but all are welcome.
Expect people who don't have all the answers but are exploring. Expect respect for different opinions, even if they are, "out there." Expect people that love to laugh and don't mind being interrupted when someone has something to share with the group.
The class studies a wide variety of subjects and welcomes those who struggle with the established viewpoint since we all bring our own life experiences to understanding and applying Christian lessons in our lives.
Hallway Space North of Pastor's Office, Admin Wing
Open Door is comprised of members who are young adults and young at heart.
This is a class primarily based upon the “Wesleyan Class Meeting” approach. Participants find scriptural characters of interest and learn about them, bringing material for discussion. It meets in the “hallway space” north of the pastor’s office.
Church Office, Admin Wing
This diverse group welcomes adults of all ages to join us as we come together to grow closer to God and closer to each other. Whether you’ve been at LCUMC for 10 years or 10 minutes, there’s a seat saved for you.
Room 156, Admin Wing
This is a class comprised of adults 60+ who study a variety of Bible-to-life issues. The class members are motivated and inspired in their participation and service to the church on a daily basis, and they also enjoy getting together for food, fun and fellowship outside of class time.
The women's group LIFT (Ladies in Faith Together) meets on Tuesdays at 1 pm in the conference room in the administrative hall of the church. Their focus is growing spiritually through study and this has been accomplished through an array of Bible Studies such as those created by Max Lucado, Women of Faith, and Beth Moore. Everyone is invited to attend and bring a friend!
Thursday mornings at 10 am men of all ages meet in room 158 with our Senior Pastor to study the Bible. If you are a stay at home dad, retired, or have Thursdays off work, come as you are!
This group is an invitation for anyone who desires to spend time with God in community. The only preparation to do is to come with open hearts and minds, and to meet new friends who are on the journey with God.
Everyone is welcome to join. This small group gathers at 9 am on Friday mornings in the Leader's home. Please email Tricia Harris with questions.
Starts Saturday, September 23rd @ 10 am.
