Studies + Classes

We believe that authentic growth in the Christian faith happens in a community where we gather to study and learn what it means to live as disciples of Christ.

Classes and studies vary in length from 4 to 34 weeks, depending on the specific study.

Looking for a Sunday School class? We have a number of classes ranging in age, marital status, and discussion topics.

Wellness Classes

  • Grief Care

    Begins October 20, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. (4 weeks)

    We understand the grief grows out of many circumstances: the death of a loved one, job loss, infertility, etc. Several times a year, we offer a 4-week class on Sunday mornings led by one of our pastors, providing a safe place to process experiences of grief while developing an understanding of our grief. Contact Melissa Liddle at mliddle@bumc.net to learn more about upcoming groups.

Short-term Studies

  • Enneagram + Faith (Tues a.m.)

    Begins October 22, 10:30-11:30 a.m. (5 weeks)

    Apply the wisdom of the Enneagram (ancient personality typing system) to your faith. Over five weeks, we’ll celebrate the unique gifts that each of the numbers (1-9) brings to reading and understanding Scripture as well as connecting with God.

  • The Language of Loss Workshop

    November 2, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

    Adults of all ages are invited to join us for "The Language of Loss: Putting Grief into Words," a writing experience designed to help us find a vocabulary for those times when mere words just won't do.

    Participants will be invited to share their own experiences of grief while engaging with writing prompts and readings. You need not consider yourself a "real writer." This workshop will foster a safe space for writing and telling our stories. Criticism is not part of the process. This is not a support group, but often when we "give sorrow words," we enhance the healing process.

    The workshop is led by Amy Lyles Wilson, a professional writer, teacher and spiritual director.
