Sunday School for Adults
There are a variety of adult class options throughout the year:
Becoming Well Versed Class nurtures understanding and conversation. In community with others, spend time discussing how the Sunday morning words of scripture apply to today’s world. All opinions and levels of knowledge are welcome and accepted as we study together.
UMC Updates Class: a periodic gathering for members and guests alike to discuss denominational news, developments, and mission. All levels of denominational knowledge and experience are welcome and accepted.
Table of Knowledge class: an informal gathering of friendly and inquisitive minds to discuss the week behind and the week ahead, and what it means to be connected to the church.
Dads’ Group class: for dads only. Join this relaxed group to discuss fatherhood, faith, and family; and what it means to be part of a faith community while raising a family.
Wednesday Evening Study: a mid-week gathering of members and friends for multi-week studies on a variety of books, topics, theologies, or religions. All are welcome and no prior knowledge is necessary.
Seasonal Book Study classes: Invite a friend or neighbor and join the class for an all-church book study during the church seasons of Advent and Lent, as we prepare to celebrate Christmas and Easter. These seasonal studies include curriculum for children through adults, and all are welcome to participate.

Breakfast and Conversation
Engage with others, join in relevant conversation and have breakfast together. Meet the group at La Chatelaine, 627 High Street in Worthington at 7:30 on the 2nd Friday of each month.
Get to know one another on a deeper level and build friendships, enjoy a meal and have fun. Interested people are organized into random groups of about 8 people at the beginning of the year. Each group meets once a month for a meal. Group members take turns as host for a month. Each host has the choice of ‘making dinner,’ ‘making reservations,’ or ‘making plans’ for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So the meal may be at a restaurant (each person pays for self), at the host’s home, in a park, at the church or other creative location. Contact the church office for more information
