Short-term bible study- Everybody Always:

Join in for a 4 week study by Bob Goff on becoming love in a world full of setbacks and difficult people! A study guide is helpful for the course, but not required.

long-term Disciple Bible Studies:

Disciple Fast Track 1 provides comprehensive engagement with the entire biblical text. We meet for 24 weeks, devoting 12 weeks each to the Old Testament & New Testament. Preparation is manageable, with 3–5 chapters of the Bible to read each day. This class will be led by Rev. Trey Witzel and Madison Waller on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm.

Disciple Fast Track 3 Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks, studying the Prophets and the letters traditionally attributed to Paul for 12 sessions each. Preparation is manageable, with 3–5 chapters of the Bible to read each day. This study examines the connection between memory and identity as the people of God by looking at the Prophets and Paul. This class will be led by Rev. Don Vaught and David Lee on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7:15 pm.

Sign-ups are located at the welcome desk in the foyer or on the website at www.fumcedmond.org. Questions about one of these studies? Contact Associate Pastor Don Vaught at don@fumcedmond.org.

Choirs and Music:

Beginning Handbells- 5 pm

A new handbell choir is forming! This group requires no musical experience, no handbell experience, we will start at the very beginning! The bell choir will rehearse from 5:00 to 5:30, immediately before dinner so then you can enjoy the rest of your Wednesday evening activities! Please let Tim Navis know if you are interested, tim@fumcedmond.org or 405-423-3383.

Cherub Choir (Preschool)- 6 pm

Kids in the Cherub Choir learn how to sing accurately, develop their singing voices for use in worship and begin to learn the basics of rhythm and pitch through age-appropriate games and activities. Members of the Cherub Choir participate in worship approximately four times a year.

Chorister and Junior Choirs- 6:30 pm

Children in these choirs learn the fundamentals of music reading through a variety of exercises and games based on the Kodály method. They also spend time learning about the seasons of the church year while learning age-appropriate anthems for presentation in worship. They sing for worship about once every 5-6 weeks.

Chancel Choir- 7:15 pm

Our church is blessed to have a 50-voice adult choir that enhances our worship. The ensemble rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:15-8:30 and Sundays from 5:00-6:15 in the choir room (Main Building, Room 100B), and they sing nearly every Sunday at the 8:30 & 11:00a.m. worship services. It is important to note that members need only commit to one rehearsal and one service per week. Twice a year, the choir presents a larger choral work, such as a cantata or small oratorio.

All voice parts are needed and new members are always welcome. If you are interested, please contact music@fumcedmond.org or 405.341.0107 ext. 113.

Youth Programming- 6:00 pm

Youth members come and learn with peers about the teachings of Christ through mission, fellowship and Bible study. The Youth meet on the 3rd floor of the main building.
