Christian Education at St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church of Valley Forge
Anyone can pick up the Bible and read a few verses, but do you really understand the meaning of the text? Could a brief discussion with others help your understanding or interpretation not just of the verses but also current events? Join us for Sunday school, Women’s Bible Study, or a Faith and Politics session to enjoy the company of others while furthering your Christian education.
Sunday school groups (ages 3 through adult) meet on Sundays at 9:30 AM from September through May. Nursery care is provided for young children under 3 years so that adults may come and learn too.
Children’s lessons include a Bible story as well as a craft or song to help reinforce the message. Adult study includes Bible passages and discussion to help further our understanding of God’s word.
While children are invited to stay for the entire Sunday service, they may prefer to head off to Junior Church after the Children’s message. Junior Church is led by our Youth Pastor and includes a lighter version of the gospel as well as a craft and snack to keep our younger members engaged. (Nursery care is also provided during the service for children under 3 years.)
Women’s Bible Study
The Women’s Bible Study meets weekly on Tuesday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM in the Library. It is an educational and social group. You do not need to be a member of the church nor do you have to be a Methodist. We welcome drop-ins.
Disciple Bible Study
Over the course of 34 weeks, Disciple covers the entire bible (Old & New Testament), following the Biblical study from Creation to the New Jerusalem. The class meets weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM. For more information please contact Pastor John Bletsch at the church office by phone or e-mail.
Faith and Politics
Please join us as we meet to discuss current events from the Christian perspective on the third Sunday of each month during the Sunday school hour (9:30 AM). Whether your political views are to the left, right, or middle of the political spectrum, we invite you to be a part of the conversation.
