Pastor's Bible Study
Pastor's Bible Study, or PBS, is a time of learning, questioning, conversation, and fellowship as we explore books of the Bible and related topics. This group is open to all adults and welcomes new members any time to visit and engage - you do not need to wait for a new series to join or attend. For the season of lent we will be discussing the book Forgiveness by Marjorie J. Thompson as well as relevant bible verses.
PBS is broadcast live at fumcburleson.org/live for those who are at home or on-the-go.
Adult Sunday School
Our Adult Sunday School groups meet weekly and are open to college-age students and older - we offer opportunities to connect for all ages and stages.
ADULT SMALL GROUPS
As Methodists, we believe that small group gatherings are essential to building relationships, growing, and strengthening out faith. We offer several church-wide group study opportunities throughout the year to encourage guests and others to get involved, with the desire that many of these groups will remain connected and deepen bonds even after the study is completed.
Solo spirit Singles & FRIENDS
One of the biggest desires of a single adult of any age is to have quality friendships with others. A ministry to single adults provides an atmosphere of acceptance and openness where people can discover others with the same experiences, hopes and hurts, and establish relationships that are nurtured in a Christian context.
Some of the activities Solo Spirit Singles offer include Bible studies, shared meals (both covered dish and restaurant), movie or theatre attendance, other cultural events, and retreats (both local and out-of-town). We also offer opportunities to be involved in events to serve our community.
United Methodist Men
Leader: Brad Kershaw
The mission of our men's ministry is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others. Each person has different gifts, graces, and areas of interest; therefore, opportunities include prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.
United women IN FAITH
Previously known as United Methodist Women (UMW), our women's ministry is a local group within the larger United Methodist Church, and we are committed to growing as disciples of Jesus Christ in community with other women and advocating on behalf of women, children and youth around the world. We equip women and girls to be leaders in communities, agencies, workplaces, governments and churches, with educational experiences that lead to personal change in order to transform the world. We work for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems, and we provide opportunities and resources to grow spiritually, become more deeply rooted in Christ and put faith into action.
Mondays in the word Bible Study
Mondays in the Word is an open group for adults who desire to deepen their faith and their relationships with others. This Spring we will offer a Spiritual Gifts Workshop. Our first gathering takes place on Monday March 13 and we offering both an evening session (10:00 am start time) and an evening session (6:30 start time).
There is no book for this program - we will provide all needed materials but you might want to bring a notebook and writing utensil. In week 1 participants will be introduced to Spiritual Gifts. At the completion of the first week, participants will take home a Spiritual Gifts Inventory to determine their Spiritual Gifts. In week 2 participants will delve into definitions of their unique spiritual gifts as determined by their Spiritual Gifts Inventory. In week 3 participants will examine Spiritual Gift Clusters along with considering their personal talents, passions and personality. After this review, they will have the opportunity to assess ways that they may best use their spiritual gifts in missions and ministries in the Body of Christ.
There are sign up sheets in the great hall or you may sign up here.
