Adult Studies

FUMC Georgetown offers a variety of adult studies throughout the year. If you need additional information, email adults@fumcgt.org.

Develop Your Personal Spiritual Life

The means of grace taught by John Wesley are among the ways God works invisibly in each of us. Our giving attention to these hastens, strengthens, and confirms our faith as God’s grace moves in and through us. Wesley divided the means of grace into two categories as “works of piety” and “works of mercy.” The individual works of piety include reading, meditating on, and studying the scriptures, prayer, fasting, regularly attending worship, and sharing our faith with others. Communal practices that Wesley recommended include regular participation in holy communion, Christian conferencing (accountability to one another), and Bible study. Resources for the individual practices of reading, meditation, and prayer are available from many sources.  A list recommended by the staff at FUMC Georgetown listing various books, blogs, email feeds and podcasts can be found here.

Small Group Opportunity in Spiritual Formation

A new small group opportunity will be offered, beginning in January, for those who want to take the next steps on the spiritual journey. Perhaps you have been on a Walk to Emmaus, or you have been impacted by a sermon or Bible study, or perhaps you are just hungry for something more. You may want to consider this new study group offered by Jay Barnes, a retired United Methodist pastor, and Kathy Pena, FUMC director of Congregational Care. The group will study the practices involved in spiritual formation including the types of prayer used in the journey of faith. There will also be practices for identifying the False Self and uncovering the True Self, exploring the importance of silence and solitude, discovering original purpose, living the spiritual life in community, and developing an intentional pattern for the journey outward. The small group will be limited to 12 participants. Registration for the group begins on January 1, 2024. The group will meet a total of 16 weeks during 2024. The first session is scheduled for January 22 through February 26. The cost for the workbook is $15. Sign up for the first session at https://bit.ly/47KJKcK
