Classes for adults are offered during the Sunday School time and during Wednesday Night activities. Classes are usually short-term (six to eight weeks). If you would like to facilitate a class, please contact the church office at office@rockfordumc.org or 616-866-9515.

Sunday Morning Classes (Sept – May) – 10:00 -10:50 am Starting September 17

Stained Glass Class – Meeting in the Fellowship hall under the Stained Glass Windows. Studying Genesis or Matthew. Led by Jeff Birkhold

N. T. Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.

“Purposeful Living: Who are You in Christ?” Led by Pastor Cindi

  • We will cover three parts in Purposeful Living…
  • Who am I in the natural? Talents, temperament, relational style
  • Who am I in the spiritual? Fruit, gifts/passions
  • Where do I fit in?

Please sign up in the Narthex so we can have enough materials on hand. This class will be offered on Wednesday as well and will be on the same material each week, so you will be able to attend the other class if you miss one.

Wednesday Night Dinners & Classes Begin on September 20

Wednesday Nights-NEW TIMES!!

  • Dinner 5:30-6:10
  • Kids Game Time 6:00-6:15

“Purposeful Living: Who are You in Christ?” Led by Pastor Cindi (see above)

Wednesday Woman’s Group: Pastor Cindi would like to see as many participants in her Purposeful Living class as possible with the hope that we can all be a part of grasping the vision for Christ’s church! So, for the fall we encourage you to join in either on Wednesday nights OR Sunday mornings.
