Adult Christian Education Opportunities

Grace UMC Sunday School is held year round at the times outlined below. Our goal is to grow and strengthen our faith and understanding of the love of Christ in our adults. We follow the UMC Safe Sanctuary standards of oversight. Our various Adult Christian Education classes are outlined below. If you have any questions on which class might best suit your needs, please contact our Director of Discipleship, Tammy Houck at tammyhouck@gracehummelstown.org.
 
At this time, all adult small groups are meeting virtually. Grace plans to reassess re-entry into the building for small groups after Easter (Sunday, April 4th, 2021).

CONNECTIONS

      • Current Study:Community – Starting Well in Your Small Group” with Andy Stanley – RighNow Media
          • You cannot grow spiritually unless you are connected relationally.  Explore how building deep relationships with people in your small group and serving in the larger community around you will grow your faith.  Learn why your unique story matters…to God and to the people you do life with!

          • Current Study: “The Happiness Project” / by: Gretchen Ruben
          • The Happiness Project describes one person’s year-long attempt to discover what leads to true contentment. Drawing at once on cutting-edge science, classical philosophy, and real-world applicability, Rubin has written an engaging, eminently relatable chronicle of transformation. Join the ladies as they read the book and engage in lively discussions.
      • Men of Connections – gather online on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.
          • Current Study: “Work as Worship” / by: J.D. Greear
          • Through powerful biblical teaching, real-life documentary stories and engaging video illustrations, this series will help us understand the biblical mandate for work. We have been called to work with excellence, integrity, and diligence, and our careers are opportunities to be on mission for Christ in the marketplace. God gives us great potential for impact on our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work.
FOCUS (Friends of Christ United in Sunday School)
  • Gathers online at 9:30am on Sunday mornings (can join online or by phone for audio)
  • Current Study: “The Book of Galatians”  /  by: Kyle Idleman – RightNow Media
      • In this Book of the Bible series, Kyle Idleman dives into the book of Galatians, one that contains some of the clearest explanations of the gospel in the New Testament. Through biblical study and engaging lessons, Kyle shows that true freedom is found in surrender, not self-dependence. Because our gospel is not one based on our words, but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
  • The class encourages you to join them in being connected, experiencing broad topics, typically online video segments,  that help you grow in faith and understanding – all while enjoying being a part of a community who not only prays together but shares laughter along the way!
 
Journey Through The Bible Class
  • Gathers online at 7:00pm on Monday evenings (can join online or by phone for audio)
  • Current Study: “Be Committed: Ruth & Ester”  /  by: Warren W. Wiesbe
      • One was a foreigner and a peasant. The other, a reluctant queen to a man she hardly knew. But their stories have one thing in common: A remarkable faith committed to doing God’s will.  In this book we will talk about how God wants us to use our faithful commitment.  
  • You will prepare for the interactive discussion by pre-reading material.  The group invites you to join them as they delve deeper into God’s Word and real-life application as they encourage one another. 
 
Serendipity Class

Vital Pursuits Class

  • Gathers online at 10:45am on Sunday mornings (can join online or by phone for audio)
  • Current Study: “The Power to Change” by Onika McClellan, Jennie Allen and Matt Chandler – RightNow Media
      • This study will help you understand the work of the Holy Spirit in your life and the process of sanctification. There is no checklist to follow, but there is a daily act of surrender to a God that will continue to mold and shape you. The more you know God, the more you can live like him.
  • The group will be utilizing RightNow Media for studies on building community, and how you live the Gospel out in everyday life. Please join the group and be a part of this change!
