Explore the opportunities for growth at First United Methodist Church
Answers to five basic questions about our Discipleship Pathway
What is our Discipleship Pathway? A collection of intentional and meaningful ways to grow closer to God, closer to others, and closer to becoming the person God intended us to be.
Why have a Discipleship Pathway? Knowing Jesus and how to follow Him, is a life long endeavor. To make disciples, we must be disciples. Our church takes the responsibility of discipleship seriously because Jesus has entrusted this process to us. (Matthew 28: 18-19) To make disciples for the transformation of the world around us, we each must take our next step.
Where do we participate in the Discipleship Pathway? Home, work, school, church, and everywhere else we go.
When do we start? Right now.
How do we participate? Through Worship, Service, Spiritual Practices, Community Involvement, and Learning.

Alamo - Classroom 1
This is a scripture based Sunday school class. The class encourages an open dialogue amongst members, with a focus on applying scripture to modern day issues.
Seeking Good News - Classroom 4
We are a group who like to study the Bible and its relationship to our modern lives. We love discussion and really can agree to disagree if need be. We enjoy being together and welcome new people with open arms. Right now, our favorite lessons are Andy Stanley videos and studies.
New Beginnings - Classroom 3
Our multi-generational class studies the adult curriculum that the United Methodist Church publishes. The lessons cover the historical basis for how the scripture came to be, the symbolism behind worship and worship places, how the Old and New Testaments connect and how it all relates to contemporary life. The resulting discussions are thought provoking and fun, leading to deeper insight in our spiritual lives.
