At CUMC, we believe the goal of a Christian is to become and GROW as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We believe a disciple of Jesus is one who is committed to following Jesus (head); is continually being changed by Jesus (heart); and is committed to the mission of Jesus (hands). Becoming a disciple is a lifelong process that can be compared to a journey on a path leading to a deeper relationship with God. Pathway to Discipleship info...
Adults at CUMC cover those from ages 18-99+. We come together for making friends, making a difference in our community and deepening our faith. CUMC offers childcare, infant thru 5th grade, for adults attending classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Register your children when you sign up for a class, group, or study.
You'll find friends who are genuine, a place to belong and Biblical teaching to help you know Christ more fully.

The Kindred Spirits class meets at 9:15am in the CUMC Chapel. It uses the Adult Bible Studies Series with weekly lesson books for class members and visitors. This series is biblically based and encompasses monthly themes and daily Bible readings. Pastor Iva O'Brien and Charles L. Reynolds alternate in leading the lesson discussions. The theme for April 2021 is New in Christ, revealing some of the ways God is being revealed to us since the Resurrection. All are welcome. Contact Pastor Iva, or Charles, for more information.

The New Beginnings class is an ongoing class that has met for years, often with DVD lessons, sometimes with a book alone, gently engaging more recent theologians and church leaders in search of evolving views and understandings of how God is calling us in new ways to follow Jesus. We are a diverse group; we welcome everyone to our class as we grow in community and love. Meeting weekly through this pandemic using Zoom, we look forward to resuming face-to-face when a vaccine is available to all. Contact Nancy Schoeps at or 717.254.6097 to join the group. Sign up here.
