Adult Ministries

Baker Memorial UMC offers a number of educational opportunities for adults, with two Christian Education sessions on Monday morning, and more study opportunities during the week. Learning doesn’t stop just because you’re past college age. Attend an Adult Education class this week!

Sunday Classes

  • At 9am the Adult Bible Study meets in the church Parlor for fellowship, prayers and the study of the Word of God. There is no outside reading or homework and anyone is free to attend when he or she can. Drop in just once-you’ll be glad you did!
  • At 10:30am the Faith Quest class meets in the Baker Parlor.  The class engages in a number of topics of study, and the curriculum rotates between video and Bible studies, all relating to living a Christian life in today’s world.

Weekday Adult Studies

  • Deborah by the Palm Bible Study –  Homework isn’t just for kids! It’s time to start hitting the books. This one hour study led by Paula Hall is offered twice on Wednesdays at 11:30am and  6:30pm during the school year. Contact the church office to sign up.
  • Men’s Bible Study – These bright-and-early-in-the-morning guys meet year-round at 7am Thursday for study, coffee, pastries  and fellowship. Topics may vary from week to week. Please join us!
