Spiritual Formation

Feed your soul

Spiritual Formation is an ongoing process of nurturing and feeding our souls.  Our hope is that spiritual growth doesn’t stop with the end of children’s Sunday School, but continues through our youth and into our adult years.  First UMC offers a variety of classes and groups that focus on study of the Bible, religious beliefs, spiritual practices and how we integrate what we believe with how we live our lives. 

We hope and pray that you will find a place for your soul to be fed in one of the classes we offer on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.
