Adult Ministries

Our Adult Ministries at Elk City UMC are many. If you are looking for fellowship, education, resources or simply a place to plug in...we have something for everyone.

Sundays:
There are several different Sunday School classes to choose from, meeting from 10 to 10:45 a.m. between worship services.

Faith Class - One of our larger groups, this class uses a variety of materials that change with the Christian calendar and also with the seasons of the year. Teachers rotate and the class enjoys a broad range of viewpoints and lively conversations.

Conversation Class This class follows the format of a book club in which participants discuss the book in turn in an open and loving environment where thoughts and perspective are valued and respected.

Fellowship Class - This class is also one of our larger groups, formed by adults in their 30's and 40's. The Fellowship Class uses a variety of materials based on the needs of the group. This class also occasionally plans fellowship events outside of church. 

Pastor's Study - Led by a pastor, this class studies Bible passages each week. Participants cover of a variety of ages and life experiences. Because of how this class is made, it allows having a wealth of wisdom where everybody benefits, learns and grows in their journey with God. 

Epworth Class - This class addresses issues related to women and their journey of faith. They use material that is suggested by participants. Participants vary in age. As with many other classes, the age diversity helps create meaningful interaction and learning opportunities for all participants.
