Adult Education: THRIVE

Small groups are the primary vehicle for

discipleship at BUMC.

We gather with our friends and neighbors to live life together, experience the gospel, wrestle with the truths of the Bible, and love one another.

THRIVE is the name of our adult small group program.

Sundays @ 9:00AM
Leader: Kenny Robeson
A Bible study & discussion group for all!

Beginning Sunday, Feb. 14 - they will be studying "Savior" by Magrey deVega. As Christians, we’re taught that Christ died on the cross to bring us salvation. We know this, but do we understand it? What exactly did Jesus do to save us from our sins? Was the cross really necessary? Could there have been another way? In Savior: What the Bible Says about the Cross, you’ll be introduced to several biblically based ways of understanding Jesus’ death on the cross that may go beyond the explanations you’ve heard before. By exploring the mystery of salvation through the cross, you’ll find a deeper love for God and others while strengthening your commitment to follow Jesus. REGISTER HERE

Words of Life, Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today (Adam Hamilton)

Tuesdays, Jan. 26-April 6, 10:15AM-Noon

Leader: Kathy Nash

In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history. He considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt.” He also explores how the latest research in science and psychology illuminates these commandments, rightly understood, as a way of ordering one's life beautifully in the present day. In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace.

Students will need an AMPLIFY free account (see above). The book or Kindle can be ordered through Amazon or other vendor.
