We Weren’t Created to be Alone.

We believe we need to learn God’s words within the body of Christ.  Each one of us knows His words to a degree; however, a group of us could see His revelation and light more thoroughly.  The goal of bible study is to associate God’s words with our daily life and to experience that Jesus Christ is the bread of life together.

The Bible is not just for us to keep to ourselves as individuals. It is also useful in helping others. We gain centuries of wisdom and are thus able to help others by studying the Bible. Proverbs, for instance, contain general principles and ideas to assist anyone in living their lives in a way that is helpful and pleasing to God.

We hope you can experience growth in a multitude of ways through one of our Bible Study classes here at Middletown United Methodist Church.

If you would like more information about a bible study class, please contact our Associate Pastor of Discipleship, Nancy Tinnell.

Coffeebreak Bible Study

Women’s Group – Thursdays @ 9:30am

This Thursday morning time slot for women has been a part of MUMC’s spiritual formation ministry for several decades. Multiple studies are usually offered, with Beth Moore Bible studies and those of other current authors remaining a staple of Coffeebreak curriculum.  This fall, beginning September 3, we will be discussing Beth Moore’s Believing God.  Through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others from Hebrews 11 as examples of persons who believed God, Beth encourages women to deepen their own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him. Workbooks can be ordered from Christianbook.com or Amazon prior to the first meeting. Click the link below to register.

This is a time to go deeper into scripture and even have the opportunity to live out your faith through occasional service projects. Curriculum is diverse and made enjoyable through both large group and small group discussion. This Fall, beginning August 30 and continuing through November 15, we will be studying the letters of Paul, the apostle.

Pastor’s Study

Wednesday Nights – 6:30 pm

We often take a position on an issue based on our own personal convictions, without ever understanding the other side of the issue. We do this with political, social, or faith issues. We are living through a ver difficult season in the United Methodist Church. Homosexuality is the presenting issue for us. Dive in to this study, based on the book “Homosexuality and the Bible: Two Views,” written by two authors, Robert Gagnon and Dan O.Via, each presenting a different side of the issue. The authors then respond to each other’s claims. This class will be a great opportunity to broaden your understanding of homosexuality. Order your book in advance from Amazon or Augsberg Fortress Press. Click the link below to register.

Men’s Bible Study

Wednesday Nights – 6:30pm

So, why a men’s Bible study? Can a men’s Bible study give a man a better and clearer understanding of the Bible than another type of Bible study? Does a men’s Bible study offer something different or special to a man which he might not otherwise get in a group of women or children? The answer to this question is a resounding YES.

Men have their own set of fears, joys, emotions, and issues. Wisdom tells us to gather together with other men to study how the Bible applies specifically to a man’s heart and life. With our men’s Bible study, you can expect a raw, unassuming atmosphere where you can encounter God’s truth, specifically targeted towards men’s issues.

This Fall, beginning September 7 and going for 10 weeks, we will be continuing our discussion of Max Lucado’s Ten Men of the Bible. Books will be available to pick up in the class. Click the link below to register.
