At Saint Andrews UMC, we believe that we are called to continually grow in our knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We offer many opportunities to grow through Sunday School classes, Bible studies, small groups and fellowship. Whether you have a long-time relationship with the Lord or are just starting out on your journey, you will find many ways to further your understanding of the love and grace that only God can offer. Join us on our journey!
“If you make my word your home, you will indeed be my disciples.” John 8:31
Saint Andrews UMC is a congregation dedicated to a life of continued growth in our love and understanding of Jesus Christ through our many educational opportunities. Our selection of Bible Study programs is varied in scope and length with studies as short as 4 weeks and as long as 36 weeks. Our “Disciple” series studies are some of the most informative classes and foster a very deep relationship with all who attend each study series. Our shorter series studies, such as Alpha, Beginnings, Psalms and the New Testament are great for those who cannot commit to the longer length studies. We strive to offer many choices each year so there is sure to be something new for you to try. For a complete list of offerings each year, please contact our church office at 919-772-4410.
Our adult Sunday School classes at Saint Andrews are as diverse as our congregation and offer opportunities for you to grow in your understanding of Jesus Christ and what it means to live a Christian life based on Biblical teachings.
Bible Class The Bible Class follows the “Uniform Series,” formerly called “The International Lesson.” In theory we cover the basics of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, every seven years. Although lessons are fairly structured, classes are informal, often featuring lively discussion.
Seekers follow the Lectionary, a three-year cycle of readings of the Bible. In general, each Sunday this class reviews the historical context behind the readings, finds the common thread that connects the Bible passages together; and discusses how these passages relate to our lives today and our Christian walk. The class is made up of an eclectic group of old and new members (both age and years in the church!) with varying backgrounds and experiences – making the class entertaining as well as informative. We enjoy exploring the Bible in a casual, fun environment!
The JOY (Just Older Youth) Club at Saint Andrews UMC provides an opportunity for senior adults to meet, eat, travel and have fun together. Monthly meetings are at the church on the third Tuesday of each month at 11:30am. Several trips to restaurants, entertainment, and points of interest are made by the group during the year. There are no age restrictions to join the group; anyone who likes to have fun in a Christian atmosphere is welcome.
Helping Men Grow In Christ, So Others May Know Christ.
The UMM mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others. At Saint Andrews, this includes a weekly men’s prayer and Bible Study group, fellowship opportunities, and hosting several church-wide events include a family bowling outing and a chili cook-off.
