Sensing a desire to grow or to find more peace in your spiritual life? We’d love to walk with you as we learn from stories of scripture and followers of Jesus throughout time. Not sure where to begin? Start here.
We’ve created a tool to help you self-assess where you are in your spiritual walk – both to celebrate where God’s grace has already been at work in your life, and to prayerfully reflect on an area where you’re sensing a desire to grow.
Use this tool anytime. You can revisit it later. Take some quiet time to think and pray about it. If you’d like a conversation partner, we’d be honored. Contact us here.
Knowing where to turn for trustworthy spiritual resources is tough! We’ve compiled a list of our go-to recommendations for those just beginning to explore their spirituality all the way through the most mature disciples. It includes spiritual practices and books – many of them are available for check out in our church library (visit the church office M-Th from 9-12 for directions). This list pairs well with our Disciple Growth Quiz, which will guide you to the sections which will be most helpful for you today.
We teach 6-8 week courses each spring and fall. Check back soon to view our Spring 2023 course offerings! Below, you’ll see an example of courses we offered in the fall.

Each Sunday, our final act of worship is being “sent into our communities.” We believe that God sends the Church out into the world to do good, but often get stuck when it comes to actually getting out in our communities. Where/to whom do we go? What do we do once we’re there? What do we expect will happen as a result – both for the church and for those we serve?
This course will address these questions and more as we explore “The Mission of the Church” from a United Methodist perspective. It will balance theory and practice, building in tangible steps toward outreach along the way. As FHUMC continues its transformation journey and seeks to serve and be in relationship with our communities, this course will be foundational for discernment, leadership, and faithfulness to our collective mission and individual callings.
