Mens Bible Study – The Man in the Mirror

This is a Bible study just for men. The study will take place on Sundays at 8:30am. The study will kick off as a 6 week study covering the first section of the book The Man in the Mirror. There is a potential to continue after those 6 weeks if you choose! In order to participate in the study, you should order the book and you will need to access Zoom. Please email brandib@gcumc.org to sign up!

We are a church that believes being a disciple of Christ involves more than just attending worship on Sunday mornings. Faith in Christ is not just another aspect of our life, it IS our life! We encourage those involved in our church to meet together regularly outside of worship to connect, learn, and put Faith into action through serving others. Below are some examples of how adults can plug into the many ways our church supports spiritual growth.

Bible Journaling
Meeting via zoom weekly on Tuesdays, 6pm
Explore the Bible through the use of color and design.
