Christian Education ministries at Colesville United Methodist Church are real, relevant and relational. We focus on spiritual formation and growth for new and mature believers of all ages. Our goal is to change lives with the clear and unapologetic teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ incorporating the Wesleyan model of tradition, reason and experience. We strive to move beyond routine programs that simply impart information, to reach real people who are going through real life challenges with the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We invite all persons to know and experience God through Jesus Christ, to claim and live God's promises and, to grow and serve as Christian disciples.
If you are seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and you want to know more or want to grow more, we invite you to attend any of the following. On Sundays, Adults have two study options, both at 9:00 AM. The Room 25 Group, called Faith Walkers, will study a series under the theme “Prayers and Prophets.”
The Parlor Group, will embark on a DVD-based study Too Busy Not to Pray by Rev. Bill Hybels. In this study, Rev. Hybels offers practical, time-tested ideas for slowing down from the busyness of life to pray, and reminds us of two truths: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer—prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world—can't happen on the fly. The Wednesday Afternoon Study Group, meets at 2:00 PM in the Parlor for a one-hour session.
