Adult Education

Our goal is to provide small groups and classes in which adults will connect with other believers and be challenged to grow in their faith, to live lives that reflect God’s love and grace and serve God by serving others. We strive to provide many options. We want each individual to consider their own specific needs and interests as they choose a group. The options to consider are:

  • time availability during the week, commitment level for outside reading and homework,
  • length of a particular study
  • target age and gender of a group.

You will find that our small groups and classes fall into three categories:

  • Bible Based Studies
  • Christian Life Focus Groups
  • Support Groups

If you need assistance in finding the right small group please call or email us at trissm@heritageumc.com
