Adult Discipleship

 What is Discipleship | At FMUMC we define discipleship at the continual process of cultivating within us the very things Jesus embodied; namely love, mercy, compassion, and justice. 

What are Discipleship Groups | Discipleship groups take many different forms. Whether affinity groups, dinner groups, Sunday School classes, educational opportunities... whether you meet in a coffee shop, a church class room, in houses... whether you only study scripture, study and fellowship, or incorporate arts, music, or sport... discipleships are designed as safe, grace-full spaces that foster dialogue and conversation around how best we can incorporate our personal faith in Christ into our daily lives.

How do Discipleship Groups work at FMUMC? | We run discipleship groups on a semesterly rhythm. Each semester begins with a promotion and sign-up period for you to determine the perfect group or class that works best for your schedule and soul. 

Summer 2020  "growing in the spirit" adult discipleship 

As we find ways to “Be the church” in these unprecedented times, we know that if the Holy Spirit is guiding us, we will be faithful to Christ and his call in the world.  So we will spend intentional time listening to the Spirit and how it challenges us to grow as disciples.  We will take risks, explore creative ministries, and reach out to new people.  We invite you to grow in your discipleship with opportunities beginning on June 7th.

For more information you may contact Pauline Henry.

 Starting Point 

Starting Point is one of the best ways to get connected into deeper fellowship and growth at FMUMC. This six week discipleship group is designed to help familiarize you with core tenets of our Wesleyan theology, and more importantly to help you understand how we integrate our beliefs into practices. 

Our next series will begin on Jan. 19th. We meet Sunday afternoons at 12:30. The six sessions include:

1. Grace: Where We All Begin
2. Salvation & Growth in Holiness: The Goal of Grace
3. Sin & Awakening: "Do No Harm"
4. Justice & Service: "Do Good"
5. Spiritual Disciplines & Balance: "Stay in Love with God"
6. Church Community & Next Steps

Get to know other folks from the congregation, whether your new to your faith, giving church another chance, or curious about Wesleyan theology. This group welcomes you!
