Bible Studies & Classes

Winter 2018 Bible Studies & Classes

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

Psalm 119:105 

Bible study is important here at Cumming First United Methodist Church.  We offer a variety of classes for people just beginning their Christian journey, or for those who have already experienced deep and meaningful study.  The bulk of our classes follow the school year with a break over the summer.  All are welcome to participate whether you have your membership here with us or not.  Please join us as we delve into scripture together.  What a tremendous gift and opportunity!

Blessings,

This is a 7 week women’s bible study by Priscilla Shirer’s. A decade ago, she authored Discerning the Voice of God, and since then God has continued to grow, teach, and challenge her in her walk with Him. This revised and expanded edition reflects that growth through new stories, illustrations, exercises, and teaching videos. Discover the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.
