Wednesday classes to GROW in the fall!



Why should I participate in a class?

At First United Methodist Church, we take seriously Jesus’s commission to “make disciples of all nations” as stated in Matthew 28:19.  In fact, our vision statement is “Growing Disciples Who Make a Difference.”  Put simply, our desire is to become more like Jesus.

When and where are these classes?

Most of the classes below will meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm at First United Methodist Church in the Multi-Ministry Center (MMC) building.  (Other times will be noted below.)  The information display in the building lobby will guide you to the specific room.

Will there be childcare?

Yes!  Children may be dropped off to the children’s ministry on the 3rd floor of the main building at 6:15pm.

What is the fall class schedule?

  • September 4 – classes begin meeting in the MMC building
  • October 30 – Trunk-or-Treat community event (no classes)
  • November 27 – no classes for Thanksgiving
  • Dec 4 – last day of classes for the fall semester

What if I have more questions?  How do I sign up?

You can either (1) call the church at 859-623-3580, (2) contact the group leader directly or (3) email the Adult Ministry Coordinator, Jamie Jordan, at.


Our fall Wednesday classes


The Epic of Eden   

Led by Joel Bonner

Many of us might be able to recall certain Bible stories we know by heart.  But do we know how those stories fit together?  Do we know the one story of the Bible?  If not, this class is for you!  Taught by Sandra Richter, The Epic of Eden explores the story of God bringing his wayward people into his family.  This is a core Stepping Stones class!



    Let’s Get Cooking!  

Led by “Mama” Ruth Babbitt

This class will learn the sweet skills of cooking and baking from one of our best!  Along with the good eats, attendees will learn about budgeting, meal preparation and planning while talking about how God can be in the mix.  Class meets in the Fellowship Hall of the main building.



  The Gospel of John  

Led by Pastor Bruce Nettleton

Rich symbolism, encounters with Jesus, and graphic storytelling all direct the reader to one conclusion: abundant life is found only by believing in Jesus Christ.



  Financial Peace University  

Led by Bob Keith

Participants that engage the teachings of Dave Ramsey in Financial Peace University will learn biblical concepts of stewardship as they make a budget, save money, get out of debt and even give!  This class will encourage you to “Live like no one else now so you can live like no one else later.”  Highly recommended for high schoolers on up!  This class meets from 6:15pm – 7:45pm.

  The Ministry of Ordinary Places  

This women’s group will read and discuss in order to be more aware of the unexpected places that God can be found.




Men’s Group Bible Study  

Led by Bryan Gardner

Check back soon for details!



  Reckless Love 

Led by Kathy Vockery

In his exploration of Jesus’ teaching and travels with his disciples, Berlin suggests that Jesus teaches us how to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength by showing us how to love our neighbor. While many hope to learn to be better family, friends, leaders, and neighbors by finding a deeper relationship with God, what if becoming a better neighbor leads you to that deeper love of God?  Class begins at 6:15pm.



  1 Corinthians 

Led by Jamie Jordan

What would the Apostle Paul say to our churches today?  Maybe some of the same things he wrote to the Corinthians in Greece in the first century AD!  That church struggled with division, preferences, sexuality, marriage, idolatry…the list goes on!  This class will walk through the letters Paul wrote to the church in Corinth, listening for God’s voice to guide us today.  This class meets at the Wesley Foundation on EKU’s campus on Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.


Unless noted, these classes will meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm in the First United Methodist Church Multi-Ministry Center building.  Contact the church office (859-623-3580), the class leader or Jamie Jordan ( to reserve your spot!
