Adult Learning Opportunities


We offer a variety of ways to engage in lifelong learning. We have classes or groups that help develop your Christian faith and discipleship. Learn how to grow, how to serve, and how to stay spiritually grounded. We have small groups that meet throughout the year. They include groups for singles or couples, men, women or co-ed.

Women's Bible Study

We have several opportunities for Bible Study specifically for women.

Monday Evening Women's Bible Study

Mondays -- 5:45-8:00 pm
This group meets on Monday evenings year-round for a time of fellowship, study and prayer. Please join us as we strive to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. You may join us for any or all of our studies. 

Women's Noon Bible Study

Wednesdays -- 12:00-1:00 pm in the Parlor
This is the perfect one hour study for busy women's schedules. We're all working ladies, but this is our one hour a week for group Bible Study and fellowship -- and it makes all the difference. No homework!

Men's Breakfast Group & Fellowship

Saturdays -- 8:00-9:00 am in Room
The St. Joe First UMC Men's Fellowship group invites all men to join them for Saturday breakfast where the coffee is always hot, the food is good (sometimes great!), and the Christian fellowship is thriving! Every Saturday 15-20 men come together to laugh, eat and enjoy good Christian fellowship. We talk about everything including sports, world news and what's going on in our lives; and yet each week we have some deep and inspirational discussions during our Bible study time under the leadership of Scott Wagner. Our group is based on the biblical purposes stated in Hebrews 10:24-25. We take turns providing breakfast, which includes everything from bakery-runs to full breakfasts cooked in our church's kitchen. At our breakfasts we make plans to help those of our church family who have filled out "Job Jar" request cards. We keep to a strict time schedule starting at 8:00 and ending at 9:00, so we have the rest of the Saturday to go about our business. No RSVP needed!
