Adult Ministries

Whether it’s recharging and renewing at our self-serve Filling Station during the week, or sharing a meal at The Gathering most Wednesday nights, Leavenworth FUMC provides numerous opportunities for adults to study and fellowship.  In addition to Sunday morning bible studies, there are mid-week studies and other small groups, like “Dinner for Eight” and “Just Friends”.

DISCIPLE IV: UNDER THE TREE OF LIFE is the final study in the four-phase DISCIPLE program. The study concentrates on Old Testament Writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and finally, Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel’s hymnbook and prayer book leads naturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. Present through the 32 week study is the sense of living toward completion – toward the climax of the message and the promise, extravagantly pictured in Revelation. The image of the tree and the color gold emphasize the prod and promise in the Scriptures. The word under in the title is meant to convey invitation, welcome, sheltering, security, and rest – home at last.
