Inhale - Exhale
Spiritual Formation is an ongoing process of nurturing our souls. Our hope is that spiritual growth doesn’t stop with the end of children’s Sunday School, but continues through our youth and into our adult years.
The Spiritual Formation group is a 9-person team with Greta Hietpas as our pastoral lead. We offer classes and learning opportunities for both members and non-members of FUMC. These classes are offered throughout the year and they include book and movie studies, guides for reflections and meditation, poetry workshops, and small group studies.
We hope and pray that you will find a place to nurture your soul in the classes we offer on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.

This ongoing group offers fellowship with other men of the church, good food and good discussions about being a man of faith in today’s society. Each month a different discussion leader brings a topic for the group to discuss.
Dwelling in the Word
Last Sunday of each month, 10:30 - 11:30 am Room 212
"Dwelling" is an opportunity to engage in soulful, contemplative Bible reading that prayerfully opens up a conversation with God. It's a time to reflect on Sunday's bible passage, the sermon, and how God is speaking to us, through scripture, about our daily lives. No sign-up, no experience necessary.
Thursday Morning Discussion Group
Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:00 am Room 101
This ongoing study is led by a variety of people. Study topics are short-term and of interest to the group. Discussion is accompanied by breakfast.
Sundays, 10:30 – 11:30 am Room 216
Each Sunday a different topic covering a recent event or current issue is discussed. The class looks at the issue and studies the how the Bible informs our beliefs and actions related to the issue. Participants then discuss how we relate and respond to the issue as individuals and as a church.
