Short Term Classes

Our short-term groups give participants many opportunities during the year to choose a curriculum to help them grow in their faith journey, and meet and mix with other believers. Groups are any time between two to twelve weeks and open to the public.

CLASSES

Create in Community
Sundays | 9:40 - 10:45 am | Room 243
We will continue to offer a Sunday morning creative group experience and you are invited to 'create in community' during the Sunday School hour.  Creative expression as a prayer form is an ancient practice for contemporary life. We will provide paper, canvas, paint, markers, pencils, brushes - all necessary supplies.  Artistic talent is not required, just an openness to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit.  Create in Community is open to everyone age 16 and up.  For more information, please contact Carol McPherson at cmcpherson@fumcpeoria.org or 309-673-3641. 

Date Night
Fridays | June 26, July 17, August 14, September 11, November 6 | 6:00 pm | Worship Center
Date Night is for married or engaged couples and for singles who are "serious items," with or without children, married 50 years or 50 hours.  The evening begins with a short DVD or live speaker on a topic related to an aspect of relationships.  After comments from Pastor Bob and Christy Phillips, our childcare staff will watch your kids while you go on a date.  Register on-line at this link or by calling the church office at 309-673-3641.
