Christian Education Offers Many Ways to Grow in Faith


Throughout the year the Christianity Education Ministry offers growth opportunities for all ages. Formal classes for adults, young adults, youth , children and toddlers provide learning experiences from the traditional to the creative.  Scripture drama, music, interactive role play,  and  traditional curriculum are used to enhance the time together and build a platform for spiritual growth and disciple-making.  

Sunday School

Based on the teachings of Jesus, Christian Education coordinates Sunday School  classes for all ages, as part of the educational ministry of the church.   Lessons vary from seasonal studies on Advent, Lent, and United Methodism, and from United Methodist resources, sermon themes, baptism and Holy Communion. Teachers use creative approaches that incorporate art, music, drama and reading the Bible aloud.  


Black History Celebration

Music, drama, visual displays, digital images, and presentations help us share the journey of African Americans from slavery to Capitol Hill.  We tell the story of plight to prominence, poverty to progress, and prayer to promise.  Special presentations incorporate the national Black History Month theme and are highlights of the worship service. Add John Wesley UMC to your family's  Black History Month venues.

Sunday Breakfast

Vacation Bible School is a five-day, fun-filled spiritual journey that helps children, youth, and adults explore faith concepts and ways to grow spiritually each day. Classes are available for all ages, including adults.  The experience is from 5:45 to 7:30 pm each evening. Meals are served.  The 2024 theme and shout out for 2024 is "When I am afraid, I put my trust in  you!" Psalm 56:3 

Breakfast is prepared on special Sundays at 9:00 a.m. This ministry is funded primarily through the generosity of members and friends.  A complete waffle bar with fruit and other toppings compliment the scrambled eggs, bacon , turkey sausage, biscuits, and a variety of juices. Sometimes the main dishes are fried chicken or shrimp and grits.  This is a wonderful fellowship that provides an easy transition to Sunday school classes for all ages.
