Ministry for Adults at The United Church

About Adult Ministries at The United Church

The Lord has brought together many spiritual gifts in our congregation. Our adults are blessing others and being blessed. We come to be fed by His word and to teach, to pass on our faith to the next generation, to serve in our church and community, to encourage one another and to testify to Christ’s work in our lives, relying upon the power of the Holy Spirit every day of the week. For information about the programs we offer for adults, contact Paul Johnson.

Sunday School

Join us for Bible-based discussion and weekly fellowship. Our Sunday School groups may focus on a book of the Bible, studies of books written by Christian authors, or topical studies on video. Periodically, we invite guest speakers to share Biblical insights with us.

Special Events

Our adults gather off-site annually for an all-day retreat where we are challenged and inspired by an outside speaker. Other scheduled events include men’s or women’s conferences, a movie or paddle outing, testimony meetings and prayer group gatherings.

Small Groups

A number of small groups are active within our congregation — some meeting in homes, some at the church. Closer relationships with the Lord and with others who have common interests develop by spending time together each week or each month. We have groups doing Bible study, Men’s breakfast, cardmaking and Christian book studies.

Who We are at The United Church

The United Church is a strong community of Christians who seek to glorify God.
Our mission is "That All Might Know Love and Follow The Lord Jesus Christ as Their Personal Lord and Savior"
We seek to do this in a number of ways

Worship

We worship the Triune God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Worship involves submitting ourselves to God as the Spirit empowers us.

Grow

We must grow in our faith, training ourselves to distinguish good from evil. (Hebrews 5:11-6:2, 1 Peter 2:2, 1 Corinthians 3:1-3)

Reach

Jesus sends his followers out on mission for God. We must carefully discern how God might call us to invite others into His Kingdom. (Luke 10:1-20, John 20:21)

Care

As a Christian family, we must bear one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2). Walking alongside each other to meet spiritual and physical needs is at the center of who we are.
