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
Please see the Education menu for the learning opportunities for each age group.
