The classes below are for adults looking for fellowship and spiritual development.
Maple Springs offers a range of formats and levels of development. Please feel free to drop in on any of these classes during the Sunday school hour (9:55-10:45am) or contact Erin Moses, our Adult Spiritual Formation Coordinator, for help (336-722-7563 ext. 408).
Asbury (Room C23 - Craven Hall, Upper Level)
The Asbury class is open to all ages and welcomes couples and singles alike. Our format is leader-directed group discussion. Study topics will vary from direct study of a book of the Bible to a topical study of interest to the class. We strive to rely on scripture as our guide in all studies. We encourage members to research different commentaries and translations of the scripture being studied so that they can share them with the class and help broaden our perspective of God’s word. We always have a lot of fun in class and enjoy occasional social gatherings away from church. We would love anyone to come see what we’re all about!
Fellowship (M2 - Main Building, Basement Level, Bride's Room)
This senior adult class studies the Uniform Lesson series and enjoys a variety of teachers. They provide care and support for one another and also enjoy doing a number of volunteer service projects at the church and in the community.
Focus (M4 - Main Building, Basement Level)
Focus Class welcomes everyone! Many of us are empty nesters and recent retirees. We enjoy discussions of scripture and a variety of topics. Our socials include gatherings at members' homes and going out to dinner at restaurants.
Foundations (M29 - Main Building, Upper Level)
The Foundations class is comprised of individuals and couples with school-aged (K-12) children who seek to become better followers of Christ. We seek to learn both from the Bible and from the example of John Wesley, founder of Methodism. We develop and maintain strong friendships, and we participate in social events and mission opportunities with each other outside of the Sunday school hour.
Inquirers (M107 - Main Building, Lower Level)
This is a class of (mostly) retirees who are young at heart. We study topical series relating to our Christian beliefs, Biblically-based DVD series, and free-standing lessons of special interest. All are welcome.
The Path (Craven Hall, Glass Room)
This class meets at various times through throughout the year. It is especially designed for visitors, newcomers, and new members, and is an opportunity for you to meet and journey alongside other "newer" folks in the congregation as we seek to deepen our relationship with Christ and the church and discover what it means to be a disciple in the United Methodist tradition.
Travelers (M26 – Main Building, Upper Level)
This is a class of couples and singles that varies topical discussion/DVD curriculum with more intense Bible
studies, depending on the season. They share a variety of interests and share facilitation duties among those who enjoy leading and teaching.
UMAR Class (M7 - Main Building, Basement Level)
The UMAR class is for developmentally delayed adults. There is Bible study, crafts, and fellowship on Sunday morning. Birthdays and Christmas are celebrated with parties.
