What a long rich history Kenmore United Methodist Church has in Christian Education for adults. Through Sunday morning offerings and weekday adult classes, there is an array of opportunities for you to choose from. We desire you to seek ways that best fits your needs to grow in the way that leads to life, through Jesus the Christ! If you are not a member of a class, try one. You may go to a class for a short or long term. You may attend different classes. Our prayer for your intentional faith development is:

Dear God, teach us to rely not on our wisdom or understanding but on the truth you have shown us in Christ. Help us to be in Christ a new creation where everything has become new! Amen!

You will note the various classes, persons to contact, and place and time of meeting below. If you need further information, please contact: Deacon Bonnie LeValley at 875-5091.

Coffee and Donuts will be available to all who come to help with this Ministry.
