Learning is an important part of spiritual growth for all ages. BUMC offers three Sunday School options on Sunday mornings for adults (September - May). Grab a cup of coffee in the Narthex and come check one out!
Join other parents and facilitators in this new class to discuss the joys and challenges of parenting and ways that our faith might guide us as we seek to parent in a faith-filled manner. This class offers a place to build community, to reflect on and increase the joyful parts of parenting, and to learn strategies to build our children’s faith. Participants are reviewing ideas from: The Sticky Faith Guide for your Family by Dr. Kara E. Powell, More Than Words: 10 Values for the Modern Family by Erin Wathen, and Available Hope: Parenting, Faith, and a Terrifying World by Julie E. Richardson. Topics include the importance of community, modeling sticky faith, balancing work and family, and maintaining Sabbath. (10:00 - 10: 45 a.m. in Room 207).
The Beyond Sunday School class looks to take us beyond what we know, beyond Sunday morning worship, and beyond the church building. Each week we follow the theme and scripture of the day and examine how the scripture and the Spirit are speaking to us. We’ll also learn about the context and content of the scripture and discuss how we are feeling called to respond in our lives beyond the walls of BUMC. Join us for this Bible-based conversation each week. (10:00 - 10:45 a.m. in Room 205).
Ready to stretch your mind? This year the long-running and ever popular Philosophy, Theology and Religion class led by Don Ross is studying the most passionately anti-religious Existentialist, Friedrich Nietzsche, before we move on to learning about Heidegger and Sartre. Join us, 9:50-10:40 a.m. in Room 209.
