As a community of faith, our congregation is called upon to grow in our spiritual lives. Manito UMC members do this by taking part in Sunday School classes, Small Groups or by engaging in our Children and Youth Ministries.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES MEET AT 9:00AM IN-PERSON AND ON ZOOM
Meets on Zoom. This class focuses on the scripture texts that will be read during Sunday morning worship. During their meeting, the class will look at the various translations of the text, the setting and the time the text was written.
Class discussion focuses on questions the texts may have raised, what it means to members of the class and what these texts might mean for the way people of faith live their lives today.
EXPLORATIONS OF FAITH meets in Room 108, the Memorial Lounge.
This morning study is focused on learning about the foundations and origins of our faith.
By studying the peoples and times of the biblical era and the development of the church and its scriptures, the class can develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of how our faith came to be, and its place in the world.
Study topics have included the evolution and history of Judaism and Christianity, notable figures in the church’s creation, and other prominent religions and their interactions with Christianity. Through a combination of visual and written materials and class discussion, the class probes the meaning and role of the Christian religion.
There are several Small Group opportunities offered throughout the year at Manito. If you are interested in being placed in a small group please contact the church office.
