Discipleship for Adults

We offer opportunities for adults of all ages and stations in life to explore farther, 

higher and deeper in their faith in order to be like Christ.

In order to facilitate a safe environment for all Discipleship opportunities, 

each meeting location is cleaned between uses and all seats are socially distanced.

Whether you are a guest or a long-time member of Garber UMC, we would like you to get plugged in to one of our disciple groups either on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, or anytime in between. If we want to be like Jesus, we need to know what Jesus did! Join us on this continuing, exciting, and challenging journey! 

For more information on any of our adult classes, email Mary Coleman:  mcoleman@garberumc.com

Sunday School and Other Adult Study Opportunities

We encourage everyone to commit to joining a Sunday School class! 

There are so many reasons to do so! 

First, you learn wonderful things about our Savior, his life, his teachings, the church, and our mission as His people. 

Secondly, it is what we do as a member of the church! Thirdly, it sets a wonderful lifestyle example for those who are watching — 

our children, our neighbors, our relatives, our business associates and co-workers. Lastly, it is a group to which we belong that holds us accountable, that provides support in times of need, and fosters fellowship and friendship.
