Adult Classes

“More to Life” Groups

More to Life groups at KUMC are small groups (6-12 people) made up of couples and single adults who meet once a week to walk together in transformational Christan community. Modeled after traditional Wesleyan class meeting groups, More to Life Groups are more than adult classes. They are small communities within the larger church in which members share where God is working in their lives, support each other with love and prayer, connect to, and serve the Body of Christ in tangible ways outside of worship and Bible study.

Life is better together — let’s find your group!

Changes that Heal by Henry Cloud

REGISTER NOW

Tuesdays at 7pm starting Sept 15th – At the cross in the Plaza

Watch the RightNow Media video beforehand

Christians are suffering from a whole range of emotional problems: anxiety, loneliness, grief over broken relationships, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy. Often they have been struggling with those problems for years. There are biblical solutions for your struggles with depression, anxiety, panic, addictions, and guilt, and that these solutions lie in your understanding certain basic developmental tasks. These tasks involve growing up into the ‘likeness’ of the one who created you.

 

In Pursuit of Paul

Journey with host Con Campbell as he uncovers Paul’s remarkable life and his voyages from Jerusalem across the Mediterranean world to Rome, where he was martyred. Con Campbell, PhD, is a New Testament scholar. His curiosity to know Paul better led him to explore Paul’s life, from his radical transformation to his missionary journeys to his martyrdom in Rome. Each of the seven parts of this series is approximately 22 minutes in length and highlights an aspect of Paul’s life.

Everyday Supernatural: Living a Spirit-led life without being Weird

REGISTER NOW

Led by Rev. Jeremy Bass

Mondays at 7:30pm starting Sept 15th – Zoom Meeting

Buy the book here, then discuss in the meeting

Most Christians believe in God’s power, yet few see evidence of the supernatural in their lives. Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft believe that God wants each of his followers to know the work of the Holy Spirit. In Everyday Supernatural, they explore:

  • How to live a Spirit-filled life that is consistent with Scripture
  • How to use the gifts of the Spirit as everyday tools
  • Practical ideas for prayer
  • Why sometimes healing doesn’t happen
  • Ways to show dependence upon the Holy Spirit

Everyday Supernatural is an engaging, biblically based invitation to make supernatural power a part of everyday life.
