Grow Bible Study

GROW is a comfortable place for everyone — whether it’s your first Bible Study or you’ve been to many Bible studies – everyone is welcome! Each week, we study the scripture from the upcoming week’s sermon — think of it as a movie trailer for the worship service. We will discuss the most exciting and noteworthy parts of the text, but we promise no “sermon spoilers!”

So whether you prefer to attend in-person on campus or on Zoom, this is the perfect opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation about how scripture is meaningful and relevant in everyday life.

This inspiring  First Church study opportunity will include elements of presentation, discussion, and interaction among participants. Discussions will be facilitated by clergy, program directors, staff, or lay leaders (depending on how many people are participating). All of the discussion facilitators will have the same guide with the same questions and discussion prompt.

Mark your calendar now to join this weekly study and discussion and get ready to GROW in faith and community!

Wesleyan Adventurers Senior Adult Ministry

The Wesleyan Adventurers Adult Ministry is all about fun and fellowship and learning. The sky is the limit on what they do.

This group is for persons that are 60 and above but they will be quick to tell you if you think this means you must be old to join their fun, think again. This group bridges a whole generation of men and women who are young at heart and act anything but their age. The adults in this ministry are fun-loving, energetic, and full of life. They are adventurous, so truly the name fits them. They want to go and do and be active. Not only do they seek new adventures; they are also looking for new adventurers to join them! This is a very inclusive group, and everybody is welcome. You don’t have to be married, or “old”, you can be single, divorced, widowed, married, or whatever. Wesleyan Adventurers is a group for everyone.

Wesleyan Adventurers has something for everyone. Travel, games, dinner, retreats, fellowship, and interesting outings. If you are looking for a way to connect with others in our faith community over a wide array of activities and events this is a group for you!
