If We are Protestants, What are We Protesting?
In our final Faith Academy this year, we will take a brief look at the Reformation, its leaders and movements. The Reformation was one of the most significant events in Church History, but we rarely discuss it. We will look at how it started, what happened, and what it means for us today.
We are forming new small groups each fall and spring. If you are interested in learning more, contact Dr. Todd Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-471-8522 x131.
Tuesdays, 9:30am | Room 133 South Wing | Becca Miller | email@example.com
This group follows the annual book, Disciplines, from The Upper Room. Each participant uses the material so that daily Bible study becomes an on-going practice which is then explored during the group's weekly gathering time. For more about Disciplines, see: https://www.upperroom.org/disciplines . The group is open to new participants!

Sunday School Classes
Growing in our faith together is an important part of First United Methodist Church. One way we grow together is by gathering in groups to study, connect, and pray together. People of all ages gather before worship for Sunday School. Whether you are a member or not, you are invited to visit any of our on-going adult Sunday school classes. Our current classes gather at either 9:30am or 10:00am, which makes it easy for you to also attend one of our Worship Services at 8:00am, 9:00am or 11:00am.
In gathering together, we are transformed by God's grace through the study, praying, and fellowship of the class. We invite you to become part of one of our classes so that you may be transformed. Visitors are welcome in all classes.
