Adult Education Ministry
Leader: Marlena Graves
Adult Education

Maumee United Methodist Church has a strong historic commitment to Christian education for children, youth and adults on Sunday mornings. Over the years, this commitment has grown to include a large number of classes that span the generations of the congregation. Sunday School is one of the places where visitors and those seeking companionship on their faith journeys can find open hearts, open minds, and open doors.     See Times Below.


We often times go along just fine until something dramatic and life-threatening happens in our lives.  Then we waiver a bit and can slightly entertain doubts about our faith, or, "if we have been good enough" for God to even take time to hear our prayers. 

This is the time to re-enforce our faith, or learn to dig deeper so that we are strong and confident as Christians.  Now what do we do with all of this?  Keep it to ourselves?  Or do we become disciples of Jesus Christ and bring more into the fold?  (Which simply means inviting someone to join you at a church function, a worship service or a class.)  Or, you may be wondering how to spiritually support someone close to you who is going through a tough time. 

The focus this year is centered around my hope and prayer that you will join with us to encourage and build each other up in the "Spirit of Jesus Christ".  To reassure each other that the path we are on is the correct path, and that when the times do become tough, we are prepared to face those challenges with the support and encouragement of our Christian family.

I invite you to look over the following offerings for the next quarter.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

 and by all means..........Please Join Us.
