Adult Ministries

Our vision is to create space for adults of all ages and stages of life to connect with God and with one another as they continue on their journey of transformational discipleship. Believing that the journey of discipleship is best walked in community, Grace UMC offers a wide variety of opportunities to gather for study, conversation, mission, and worship.

GROW

The Sunday School program at Grace UMC is vibrant and engaging!  We constantly hear from new members that they knew Grace was their church home when they connected with one of our Sunday School classes.

Most Sunday morning groups meet in the main building or Oak Park Center between worship services, from 10:00 – 11:00 AM. Many of the Sunday morning groups also gather throughout the year for mission projects, church events, fellowship, and other ways of “doing life” together.

Covenant – Room 135

Enjoy in-depth Bible studies with this group of adults who have been together for over 20 years, but always welcome new faces! This group meets from 9:45-10:45 to accommodate choir members.

Friendship – Room 117

Join the “Doers of the Word,” a group of people committed to taking care of one another, the church family, and the wider community. If you’re looking for a place to fit in and get connected, this is a place to start.

“You’ll Get Through This” – Max Lucado,
Led by Geno Sharp (Room A137)
January 3 – February 7, 2021 @ 10:00 AM

In the next six weeks, participants will begin exploring the refreshing assurance of Christ even in the midst of unprecedented times. We are reminded that God doesn’t promise that walking through trials will be quick and painless, but He will guide us through them.
This is an honest exploration of how Christ brings good to the bad, joy in the pain, and hope in the despair. 

“Unafraid” – Adam Hamilton,
Led by Nickia Larsen (Room D110)
January 3 – February 7, 2021 @ 10:00 AM

This class will take a deeper dive into the current sermon series, “Unafraid,” to explore how we can learn from our fears and discover applicable steps in overcoming them….all in the light of Scripture and a faith that promises again and again that we can live with courage and hope. The Children and Youth ministry will also be doing a deep dive into the “Unafraid” series during the 10:00 o’clock hour.

 

“The Best Question Ever” by Andy Stanley
Led by Sam Powell (Room A135) @ 10:00 AM

In The Best Question Ever, Andy Stanley effectively teaches the practical and lasting value of simply asking this question about our actions in all of life’s arenas: What is the wise thing for me
to do, in light of my past experience, my present circumstances, and my future hopes and dreams?

Registration is highly encouraged, but not required
