Adult Ministry – June 2015

adult-ministry

It is the start of summer, but the Adult Ministries Committee is already thinking about Fall and what classes will be offered for the Sunday School hour and for Wednesday night studies. We want to give opportunities for people to grow in the knowledge of Christ and in fellowship with other Christians.

Volunteers for teaching some of the classes have graciously come forward and we anticipate offering a variety of class topics. If you are not already in a small dinner or Bible study group, there will be an opportunity to join one, so be thinking about that. You will be able to sign up for classes and activities at the Fall Festival, planned for September 13.

As a new committee, we are determining the scope of groups/activities for our committee to oversee. Our church has many groups and activities and we distinguished between outreach activities and social activities before coming up with the following:

  • Wednesday adult groups
  • Small groups – dinner and Bible study
  • Adult fellowship group & singles group
  • Men’s prayer breakfast
  • Men’s mentoring group
  • Saturday men’s and boy’s group
  • Women’s Bible study – several groups
  • Women’s lenten morning
  • Community ladies day
  • Church library

If you are a leader for one of these groups, our committee would like to be a resource for you, to help promote the group and, if needed, help find study materials. We also want to be aware of what each group is teaching – the topic or name of the book, etc., when you meet, and how to join the group. When new people come to church, we want to be able to “plug them” into a group if they desire that. Knowing who to contact and what is being taught would help us to do that. One of the committee will be connecting with the leaders of each group this summer. Please let us know if we can help you. 

Colossians 1:9-11 (NIV)

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience…
