Faith Journey Classes

All classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:45 am. Click here to see a list of the different classes offered at Aldersgate. 

101 Class

101 Class

Aldersgate 101 is a three-session event, typically offered two or three times a year, primarily for people wanting to know more about Aldersgate. It meets at 9:45 a.m. in the Conference Room of the church office. Participants are often, but not limited to, people who are fairly new to Aldersgate and are interested in finding out more about what our church is like. For people at the entry level, contemplating becoming members of the congregation, it’s an ideal opportunity to become more familiar and comfortable with our church, as well as more familiar with Rev. Mitch and one another. If you’d like to be a part of the next Aldersgate 101 class, just call the church office to let us know.

Fellowship Class
 

Fellowship Class

Sundays 9:45-10:45 am, Room 110 (hall across from church office)

Currently studying: Top 10 United Methodist Beliefs, by Don Adams

The members of the Fellowship class meet during the Sunday school hour to learn together about how to live our best Christian life. We follow a structured study curriculum with a teacher who leads an open and frank discussion of what we feel the material is saying to us. We eagerly hear everyone’s ideas and certainly don’t always all agree, but do always wind up learning more about the Lord’s plan for our lives.

Typically, our class president, Norman Bailey, opens each class with announcements concerning our members and events of interest, and then leads us in prayer. Our teacher, Lew Plane then guides us through the day’s lesson and closes in prayer. The class decides together what studies they would like to take on. During Advent and Lent, the study is usually seasonal, and the remainder of the year, studies often come from Cokesbury.

New Horizons
Exploring a wide variety of topics together to enhance our understanding of God’s will for our lives

New Horizons

Sunday Mornings, 9:45 - 10:45 am, Room 103 in the hall off the atrium.

Currently studying: The Great Spiritual Migration, How the World’s Largest Religion is seeking a Better Way to be Christian, by Brian D. McLaren

Our class is a very diverse group in almost every way. We come from a variety of backgrounds and can’t be easily categorized by age or stage in life. Some of us are long-time members of Aldersgate, others newcomers. But we have so much in common! We enjoy a serendipitous study of topics that interest us in the moment. In the past, we have examined the life of John Wesley, used video curriculums, and also tackled the latest study from Billy Graham’s daughter. At least once a year, we select a book of the Bible to dig into, and then, to determine what we’ll focus on next, we’re likely to be caught thumbing through the Cokesbury catalogue to see what grabs us!

Our times together are not at all rigid or formal, and there’s certainly no homework or preparation required. We tend to share the leadership of the class and start meetings with prayer and a discussion of current happenings affecting our lives. From time to time we also have social evenings, short trips to places of interest, and dinners together.

If we sound like your kind of group, we would love to have you join with us!
