“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

– Matthew 28:19

We hope adults of all ages and areas of interest will find ways to become more deeply involved in the Discipleship process at FUMC.  Visit a Sunday School class, be part of a short-term study, join (or help begin) an ongoing small group, offer to lead a Bible study, participate in mission and outreach projects.

Please contact Karen Andrews using the contact form here with any questions you may have about our adult ministries.

Come, Wade, Dive is First United Methodist Church’s discipleship process. These simple terms challenge each of us to consider where we may be currently be along our Christian walk.  Am I just now beginning to attend worship services and have not yet gotten involved in other ministries of the church?  Then I am probably in the “Come” area of the process.  If I attend worship regularly and have sampled a Sunday School class or introductory Bible study, then I am ready to “Wade” into the water, by being a bit more challenged on my journey of Discipleship; perhaps I now want to participate in a more challenging study, become a part of an ongoing small group or begin to spend time reading and studying the Bible, attend a Walk to Emmaus, deepen my prayer life.  At some point I am ready to “Dive” into the deeper waters of the Discipleship journey; I may lead a class or a study, serve on a ministry team or committee, participate in hands-on mission projects, partner with others in an accountability group of Bible study or faith development.

Your Discipleship Team develops and offers church-wide studies for adults at all points along the process of becoming Disciples of Jesus Christ.
