The United Methodist Church believes that Sunday School is for life.  However, since not all Christian Education at First United Methodist Church – Farmington happens at the Sunday School hour, we say  Christian Education is for Life.  We plan study opportunities of many varieties for all ages and encourage everyone to join in a class or small group.

The fundamental goal of Christian Education is the development of Christian faith and discipleship. Some important aims of this goal are:

  • To receive God’s grace and grow in faith
  • To enlarge our grasp of the Bible
  • To commune with God
  • To teach and renew our tradition
  • To take part in the church’s nurturing and mission
  • To take up our ministry
  • To serve as stewards of God’s gifts
  • To work toward common goals
  • To communicate our faith
