Education

Children’s Programs

Sunday School classes take place each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade are in class together upstairs with Dianne and Kathy as their teachers.  Second through Sixth Grade class meet in the downstairs classroom next to the pastor’s office. They are taught by Debbie and Abbie.  Junior and Senior High (7th – 12th grade) can be found upstairs in the youth room and Tracy teaches their class.  All classes are using the curriculum from Spirit and Truth Publishing which follows the Narrative Lectionary that we use in worship.

Hope UMC has active Children and Youth Fellowship programs that get together monthly for fun, learning and mission projects.  The Fellowship programs are led by Melissa and Abbie.  We welcome all children and youth from our community.

 United Methodist Economic Ministry, Our Sunday School Mission Project

This year, our Sunday School will support the UM Economic Ministry based in Maine.  We will be supporting their “Backpacks and Sneakers” program to help rural families with the supplies their children need for school.

Confirmation classes are held every few years.  Our last class was confirmed on Pentecost in 2018!

Adult Classes

An Adult class meets in the Collis room at the same time on Sunday morning as the children’s Sunday School.  The class is led by Joanna Page.

Adult Bible Study also meets on Tuesday mornings at 9:30.  This group is led by the pastor.

We hold seasonal small group studies during Advent and Lent.

~We strive to nourish the minds and spirits of all our members, making faithful disciples who are in partnership with God and one another.~
